It is a must to visit and walk around the harbour to see the boats and the views are fabulous. But the area can be chaotic and busy, with some areas smelling of polluted water. Worse is the NOISE from DISCOs in near bye eating places. A real down on the whole city. Who is responsible for litter, safety, noise... More

Great view if you arrive by bus or ferry, wide and sunny, loads of benches, where you can sit and enjoy the sun or take away food, and really good wi-fi if you have to check on the best tourist spots in the town.

The Riva is full of bar/restaurants wall to wall. Great for a stop and a great view. Not really our cup of tea but if you want a sit down and rest you have a multitude of places to choose from. Top prices for a front line position.

Although this is a large port it is really pretty. The first thing that strikes you are the beautiful old buildings and the mega yachts that add an elan to any landscape. The other thing we were struck by was the hustle and bustle of people on the harbor's edge and the throng of people seated at all the restaurants... More

This is a great location to walk with no particular destination in mind and take in the sights of the old city and the harbor. It is sometimes smelly.
