Walked along the cobblestone streets lined with little cafes at night and watched couples and horse-drawn buggies go by. Lovely. Do not go alone unless you're in love.

I visitedt his area 4 years ago and I remember liking it more back then. I was on foot this time with my girlfriends. Last time my husband and I took a horse and carriage to site see and it was great because it was pretty much guided. We were able to get tons of nice photographs and see things a little quicker than if you were on foot.

I do recommend going to Chinatown to eat though, much more variety and that's where I went last time. Close to the waterfront this time, we dined at an outdoor cafe- more like a deli and the food was not great but very expensive.The waiter ( maybe owner) was rushed and forgetful and on times rude. This restaurant is not yet on trip advisor so I cannot write a separate review of it.

If you enjoy site seeing, it's a nice area to go, the streets in places are stone and really neat, cars go thump thump down these streets,everything is very close together and has an old world feel.

“There is so much to see just walking on your feet”

If you take a bus tour you can learn a lot about the culture and buildings. Try the amphibus boat/bus in one

“Travel back in time”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The narrow old cobblestone streets are tricky to walk on(especially in heels) but the architecture is well worth the walk. You can find everything from trendy boutiques to out of the way restaurants, but I suggest reading the posted menus before choosing as prices vary as much as the type of restaurant.
