“Just walk and wander and explore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

we had a great time wandering around in the streets of the old town. The little alleys, steep stepped streets etc etc. Lots to see there. The main street/square is good too. The restaurants and cafe's are mostly hidden away.

Just have a good wander!

“Perfectly preserved history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is a beautiful, perfectly preserved (and/or restored) medieval city. It is like being in a story book. Some people still live here and there is washing hung over the narrow streets. Walk around the walls. The views are amazing as well as the feeling that ancient feet trod these paths. Get a personal guide, it is well worth it. As tourism is their main industry, they do it well and it is one of the few places I have visited where I felt as if we were fairly treated and not regarded as fair game. Food was very nice (not cheap). A better class of souvenirs and lots of art work for sale from the local art college.

“Great for walking and people watching!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We loved walking around and exploring the streets, checking out the restaurants and cafes. There are more people when the cruise ships are in port and it can get frightfully crowded. I recommend a walking tour, it is a good way to learn about the history,

“lovely old town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

The back lanes of the old town are fascinating as they are still very much residential. You can wander for hours. There are very good restaurants in the back lanes.
The jazz being played around the town is fantastic and you can just linger and listen for free.
Overall a lovely town.

“Lovely place to spend time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

The streets look like they are marble paved. The breeze from the side alley ways keeps you cool on the hottest of days. Be sure to visit the Rector's Palace
