Is it worth it?

Definitely it is worth a visit to the monument. The steps are certainly for many strenuous, if you’re athletic, you should ask the front no problem. Although there were many with their young children upstairs, I personally would not do it because the stairs are very narrow and you have to make always very small, to pass by others. For the elderly and people with reduced mobility, the rise could be problematic. There is no elevator!
