“In the heart of the action”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Vibrant, full of life and with plenty of places to stop, photograph, wander in etc. Plenty of places to choose from for that much needed drink, coffee, meal or present

“Wonderful street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Best times to visit are early morning and evening as it gets very busy from just before lunch as the tours and cruise ships arrive.
Great place to sit with a coffee and just watch the world go by, your constant companion will be the flocks of swallows sweeping around the skies above the street, it truly is a fantastic sight!
At night time there is usually some sort of street entertainment in the various bars and cafes but as you would expect for such a busy place prices are very high, double what you would pay in the streets just off the Placa.

“Visit by day and by night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

To see a very differing experience that will blow you away. Heavy Italian influence but a magical place to explore. great places to eat in all styles and prices, and ice cream places all over. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore and don't miss the buzi (sp?) bar through a small hole in the wall and located on the rocks.

“Beautiful but leaflets are given for everything.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The Stradun is lined with gorgeous buildings and a lot of restaurants and souvenir shops. During peak season the leaflet girls are in high numbers and will give you leaflets for everything from nightclubs to candle shops. They don't pester you so it isn't too bad.

Great to see and experience the history flowing around the place and always felt comfortable and unpestered.

“Beautiful at night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

The Stradum during the day is full of energy, with lovely architecture and lots of people walking or strolling, from place to place, but walking at night from the main gate to the harbor gate was truly magical.
