A must! So cool seeing the city from above, and seeing it connect the economically disadvantaged people in the hills with the city center.

I am not 100% confident but there appears to be more than enough space on the metro cable....people are relatively easy going. I am not sure how "big" is big but I would say that a normal suit case (15-20 kilos) would not... More
