I loved all of the little shops here. This is what I was hoping for while shopping in Europe: unique places that we wouldn't have at home. There were cute and wonderful restaurants too!
I've read reviews the some people wrote complaining about it being expensive, but my friend and I found a shop that had everything for €30 (wish I could remember the name!). It was very unique and everyone there was thrilled with their selection. We went in quite a few shops, and the good thing is that they're all pretty close together, so if you don't like a place, you can quickly move on to the next one. There are some chain stores, as this area is extremely popular, but a lot of this area is still small, very unique boutiques. I would definitely recommend at least window shopping or looking in these shops :)
