The great thing about this area is everything is within walking distance. We also walked to Notre Dame which was beautiful with a nice park to enjoy nearby.

We walked around the upper and lower town but took a city tour with a tour company to see where we wanted to spend more time. You can call in the visitor centre and get plenty of information that will help you.
