I'm very interested in staying in this part of the city, for the history and architecture, but I keep reading about the streets being torn up by construction, creating a lot of inconvenience when trying to get around on foot. Not to mention the noise, dust etc. I have had this experience when visiting old neighborhoods in other cities, and it's not pleasant.
Wondering if I should wait to vist Casco Viejo. Or will that not make any difference, as the building likely to continue for a couple of years. (And then I guess the question is, will it still retain its character after all this work is done?)
Any thoughts from visitors who have been there lately, or from residents? Thanks
