A very pleasant trip through time and a very beautiful land. May is the best time to go, I think, because everything is green, flowers are everywhere the air is fresh etc. The old steam train takes a 2 hour round trip through the mountains,...More

The train trip was very nice and confortable, although short. You can admire the scenery and also get some info from the guides. Not to miss if you are a railroad fan!
