“Very cool sight to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

We enjoyed the old walled city. The views were amazing, and really took you back into history, when a walled city meant the difference in life or death. Found a really nice and clean "attended" rest room, and a shady place to sit outside and cool off.

“Wonderful old city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

The old town is so pretty with every street a jog to walk down. Worth visiting the castle and going on the walls. There are loads of great restaurants and ice cream parlours. Best place was a bar up on the walls looking out to see in the evening when there is a lovely breeze. Worth a few days here. We stayed with friends but otherwise would have stayed in a hotel with a small pool in the town. There are some superb old hotels here.
