Very picturesque harbour with plenty of restaurants and bistros. At night, the whole area comes alive with market stalls, musicians and entertainers.

It is lovely just to wander around the old port, to eat and drink or just to people watch. Don't miss the old yachts near the maritime museum.

Loved the atmosphere, lots of little shops and loads of restaurants. I would recommend park and ride in as parking is difficult and the bus is every 10 mins
