I was lucky enough to spend a half day here on a recent business trip. The area is scenic and clean with plenty of eateries and some attractions. It's an ideal place to lounge around with a coffee and your favourite book although would advise against eating there. As with any tourist spot, the food tends to be of a... More

nice and looks like from a fairy-tale . not that many people as you expect to meet in the center. It is new rebulded, and it feels a little bit, but anyway it is nice to stroll down.

What a beautiful historical center! I wasn't aware this town was going to be so amazing. Spotless and very well kept, it has nothing to envy if compared with more famous european city centers, Italy would have a lot to learn and apply on all those Unesco Heritage it has.

Take an afternoon and walk the streets of the Old Town. Great choices of tourist traps and real artisans, selling everything from original artwork to Kitsch. Get off the main streets if you want the real deals. Amber shops abound and good rices are possible in the smaller non-chain shops (pick one that does NOT say Shubert and you are... More

A lot of the original 'old town' was destroyed during the war, so most of the original town is underground, the current buildings having been faithfully rebuilt. There are numerous historic buildings for those who are interested in history, and shops and craft stalls for those who are not! There is a viewing tower which offers a good view over... More

A bustling area. Attractive buildings and fully pedestrianised area. Excellent crafty shops, bars, restaurants and cafes.
