Walk the Roman built cardo in the heart of the palace and experience the buzz of commerce from ancient times till today...filled with shops, restaurants, bars, tourists, but great architecture, beautiful original structural details and contemporary life wedged in between.

This is a great place to take pictures at night or during the day. If your walking around Old Town you won't miss it.
