Refreshing views in the middle of the town with the river that gives you a peace of mind. I really liked the contrasts from modern cars dowmn to the river which gave me a feeling of being back in the 19th century.

Best time to walk is early morning (6 or 7:00 a.m.) before the crowds appear. It's quiet at that hour. A real pleasure to experience the natural beauty of the river and the foliage. Highly recommended!
