This city does not have a lot to offer in the way of museums and one of the few was not open midweek in the school holidays what a missed opportunity

The museum is a maze of historical shops and living spaces. Very well done. The guides make sure you don't miss a thing.

We only had 45 minutes till closing time and... More
