The elevator to the castle was easy to find though we ended up walking up the usual path from the ticket office. Definitely worth a visit. Can overlook the Roman theatre from the castle walls.

Absolutely beautiful, super fun for the family. We did not do the audio tour, which I regret, I would have appreciated some context. But even without, the palace fortress is beautiful and fascinating. We did it in the spring, and the weather was perfect and pleasant. This would probably be an extremely hot activity in the summer.
Essential viewing.... Have a look at the model of the buildings to see how the parts combined to make an amazing set of residential areas. Beautiful gardens, mosaics, columns. Take your time. No rush. Sit and imagine the people living there....the views they enjoyed were very different obviously. And.... look up and look down. So many little but special features.You'll see details missed by only looking ahead.
