Lovely little area, a number of cafes, small orthodox church to visit and the Rolex Clock Tower. Not over-priced either.

It was raining when we went so it was a quick visit. Was an OK place. Nothing very remarkable. Can park the car in this area and walk to the other attractions

A classy place, giving the feeling that you are in Europe. Just within the old city it brings a lot of charm with the little cafes and the pegeons. Worth a visit.
