You'll love walking around this place. Take your time and enjoy. Don't be a tourist stop and talk to people. Show them you're interested in them and they will tell you things that will make your good trip a great trip.

The town is best early in the morning or later in the evening to beat the largest crowds of tourists. It can get very crowded during the middle of the day. This is the town of a thousand pictures lol! Everything is charming and there's...More

Need to commit at least one full day for the experience capped off by the Nightwatchman tour. It takes time to walk the streets and the wall.
