“Quaint and cute.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

It is a very small neighborhood, easy strolled in an hour (plus time for shops). My only complaint was that boutiques and actual shops are clearly being displaced by souvenir shops. Still, charming streets to walk around and some nice cafes for a meal.
