So many restaurants to dine, never had a bad meal, just wished I was there for longer so I could experience them all! There is so much choice and everywhere is so picturesque. Loved Marbella old town, a beautiful part of Marbella

This is exactly what you would expect - very nice and charming with plenty of other tourists like ourselves. If you want to experience a real Andalusian town/city you should go to Mallaga.

Marbella Old Town is just stunning. Marbella centro is a busy modern hotel and bar filled hub and the old town is such a contrast, ts lovely. Tiny narrow streets with little quirky shops selling nice clothes and trinkets and flowers everywhere. All of the narrow little streets lead you to a square where tables, chairs and umbrellas are set... More

This is a very small area so an evening or two will do it. The centre square main restaurant is entertaining as its disorganised, Keystone cops come to mind, and its expensive.

We were staying across re road so very easy access, defiantly worth a visit. Restaurants and shops are expensive but it's a nice walk through and the narrow paths in places reminds me of Venice. Not much happens there in the day

We vistied the old town swiftly and lucky us we found these carriages pulled by hourses. You can take a spin in it for 20 euros per person that lasts like 30 min or you can take the longer ride which is more expensive. We didn't have the time so we took the short tour and it was a great... More

This area is pedestrian only. No cars, so it's a place for a walk. Tons of souvenir shops and good restaurants and cafe's. It's a must visit if you are in Costa del sol.
