If you manage to come through all the taverns and their owners who try to convince you to sit down and have lunch there, you can reach the lighthouse. From that point you can take the best pictures from the old venetian harbour.

I really love this harbor with its views which are the same as on the postcards, BUT the atmosphere is ruined by tons of annoying restaurant barkers...

Beware of this tourist trap, it's very expensive! Me and my sister ate lobster and the bill ended up with 270 euros. Visit this old port but do not eat there! Walk 50 meters more and into the old town and everything is much nicer plus cheaper!
