“The heart of the old city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

This is where the ancient trading happened. The pillars still stand and it's so cool to lean against a pillar that's been standing for centuries!

“relaxing wonderful experiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

This is a wonderful and beautiful walk in narrow allies. Interesting to see the people and talk to them (most speak english). We were in a small group but one of the group had been six times so was a good guide. I would recommend a guided to get the best from the city.
