The historic center surpassed all of our expectations: bigger, older, nicer, cheaper and cleaner then we would have expected. Winding cobllestone streets, old frescoes of the Virgin on many walls, an 11th century cathedral (amongst other churches), great buzzling nightlife, relaxed atmosphere... Especially after seeing Naples, you would think things get only dirtier when you go more to the south,but no... Also, very few foreign tourists compared to Amalfi or Naples, so no tourist traps. We felt absolutely safe there, I did not see any pickpockets and hardly any beggars.
