This is a very beautiful street with parks and historical buildings. There are a lot of cafes and restaurants, a couple of hotels and very beautiful opera house, fountains and monuments. Sometimes it's just too many people there.

If you are at the Opera House, look to the end of the square and there it is. It is a great place to see a cross section of tourists.
