  • Nice small park with a great view of the city. There's a nice small cafe restaurant to relax with a nice view. They have some good local produce that you can try. Reasonable prices. There's a tourist train that goes up to the castle.
  • Fantastic view. There is a pub where you can relax a bit with your favorite drink. It could be difficult parking there. You can find free parking area 7 min on foot
  • Nice views but the way up is not looked after, so it's a bit rough.
  • Beach often too dirty. Lots of cigarettes in grass. Trash cans overflowing with garbage. Why doesn't city hall simply do it's job? Evidently they don't need tourism there.. The same for Cerro's and Ispra beaches.
  • Great place to see a from-the-top view of Arona and Lago Maggiore. There are also remains of the castle and children playground, and a few benches to sit and relax. Be prepared to walk up the slope to the top, but the walk turned out to be not as hard as I would have imagined by looking at the top from below.
