A good place to relax with a cup of coffee or a beer and watch
The world go by. Listen out for the trumpeter every hour and look up to the church tower where you will see him.

Around Easter they have a local market in the town center that sells lots of food as well as homemade items. IT was worth the visit. The surrounding area has many churches and historic building that have been around for centuries.

We visited over Easter so they had lots of market stalls , a stage and different street entertainers set up . The horse and carriages are lovely for a trip around the old city.Market place is great for bargains . Lots of drinking and eating places and is a fun place to be.

This square packs a lot into a relatively small area. You can walk the entire thing easily. There are 100s of restaurants and some very good hotels. I recommend Venetian House in the square. The cloth hall dominates the center of the square and had some neat little vendors. The cathedral is beautiful. We lucked into their Easter Market which was small, quaint, and mesmerizing. Be mindful of the horse drawn carriages, they are plentiful. We didn't ride them; I never do out of principal but if it's your cup of tea, they are available.

The main market square had an amazing atmosphere which literally comes to life in the evening. We would highly recommend it to anyone visiting. There are plenty of places to grab a coffee or some food. The variety is immense. We had a fussy teenager with us and we didn't find it difficult at all. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time here
