What a great place to be. Having a host of important monuments, this has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage in 1997. The whole area is wonderful to walk around, soak in the sights, see the monuments, eat and drink at cafes and generally people watching. One can spend many hours here and not get bored!

You can argue that all European cities Are similar but this one is so peaceful and unique and easy to Wander. Such a great mixture of old buildings, churches and shopping. The river is close by as is the palace. A great way to spend the day
