“Great shops and eats”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Lower town has many artisans with original art work for sale. Do not miss Le Jardin des artisans...jewelry on sale. Great finds. Wear comfortable shoes as it is all cobblestone streets.

“More Europe in North America”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Narrow cobble stone streets with numerous vendors and 'resto-bars'. One gets a real taste of the old world walking among the ancient buildings and climbing the almost impossibly steep streets.

“old city”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

first thing to watch out for if you take your car into the old city is the parking set up , pull up , there will be a blue tag for your parking space on a short poll by your car, take down the number on the blue tag and go to the pay station,enter the number, pay for the amount of time you want to say, press the button to get a receipt , put the receipt on your front dash of you car so the meter maid can see the time on the paper, don't be a minute late, you will get a ticket. the old city was simply beautiful, alot of stone walls, beautiful parks, bright waterfront, interesting shops on narrow streets , colorful flowers everywhere, the people very freindly, alot of old character.

“Like stepping back in time”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

It felt like we had been transported to France and stepped back in time. It was great fun and it captured the fancy on the adults as well as the teenager.
