“Overcrowded but wonderful”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

A delight to walk around despite the crowds. A homogeneous collection of classic buildings in warm stone with a gleaming pavement beneath your feet and tantalising side alleys and steps. "The Pearl of the Adriatic" is no empty promise.

“Beautiful but...”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Possibly the highest concentration of tourists anywhere on the planet. No local atmosphere at all, hard to get a sense of the history surrounded by cruise shiploads buying up tacky souvenirs.

“Loads of Charm”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Personally, entering Old Town every day took my breath away. The town is even more beautiful at night all lit up with people strolling down the main street. Loved the little alleyways and the trips up the stairs to discover more delightful restuarants and shops.

Plenty to see and do. We didn't see everything but enjoyed walking the City walls and walking around the old city,

“Friendly residents and shop owners”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Although packed with people in September, the old town is large enough to allow quiet strolls through the residential streets as well as unique shops and historic sites.
