“Shopping!”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Some lovely shops and cafes down this road. Walk along the colonaded pavements and take in some of the gorgeous architecture. A great place to sit and watch the world go by over an espresso.

“Colonnaded shopping street”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

Ancient colonnaded shopping street. Many upmarket shops but also interesting side streets with more "normal" (i.e. non-tourist) shops. There was a market down one of these streets on Thursday (and may be other days).
