There is probably nowhere else in the world where you can get quite as close to the foot of high mountains by car or public transport.
And possibly nowhere else with such a diversity of forms of public transport in such a small area: rack railways, gondola cable ways, cable cars, funicular
railways and not forgetting the post buses with their fabulous horns.
Surprisingly, when I visited food and drink were as cheap if not cheaper than in the UK, but the transport, although superb, was as expensive if not more so.
