The old town is just lovely, and you don't need to purchase an entry ticket anymore. Now you just pay for the individual sites, so you can wander all over town, and you should!

It’s amazing looking at the old buildings as you can imagine going back in time during the olden days. You will need to come here twice for sure as the day and night view of this place is unique on its own.
