Very beautiful street with anciente buildings each one with its own peculiar architecture. In the street it has the Royal Theather. The only con is that it has a hill (so if you're not found of walking much, you could get tired)

The street is now lined with middle-to-upper market chain restaurants as well as (some overpriced) bars and also a few shops here and... More

Grey street is on a hill. It is wide and absolutely packed with good quality bars and resttaurants. It really has got a great buzz at any time of the day or night.
