Lots of little streets with plenty restaurants and shops! Amazing how big the place is. The walk around the city wall is a must!

Wander around and mutter "shame" under your breath whenever a bell tolls. Whether you're a GoT fan, a history buff or just a lover of architecture, make sure you visit the old town and spend at least a day exploring.

Easy to see why the city is a world heritage site, it is a fascinating place.
It is very touristy, full of Cafes, restaurants and gift shops but it doesn't detract from the overall appeal of the Old Town.
Try to visit in the week or when the cruise ships aren't in as it then gets very crowded.

Very nice town to take a walking tour, which is not free but lots of tour companies are there to chose for.
