You can wander the streets looking into the shops with the harbor mostly in view. When it is time to rest or eat, there is no better place to be than a table at one of the many restaurants around this lovely harbor.

Pretty little harbor with historic buildings all around it. It has a draw and it is fun to watch the boats go in and out of the harbor.

Lovely spot not surprisingly busy with tourists and locals alike. Lots of restaurants and bars and cafes together with small souvenir shops. Lovely architecture in the buildings around the basin which has some lovely old boats moored.
