A good walk and good souvenirs

Nice old town. The sellers of stores are slightly too talkative but altogether, they are pleasant and courteous.

What a stunning collection of mosaics and artefacts here. Air conditioned so pleasant relief from the sun, and with totally stunning views looking down and across the city. Small charge for camera and entrance fee, well worth a visit.

You have to climb right up to the top of the town, but from the walls you have an excellent view over the whole town. There is also a museum with some excellent mosaics
