Visited at the weekend and the weather was fabulous. Got some beautiful views of the port from the ferris wheel. Could go round another few times for the money though. It was 5 euro and we went round 3 times.

We went to the carousel for my daughter. She rode it several times. They have a complete array of different animals and "vehicles" that are quite different than those in the United States. She did not want to leave. Also, the rides were long. We...More

Try and be there for friday market day. Wonderful salami and cheeses, fresh bread, fruit and vegetables. It's worth having a park or harbour picnic when you become disillusioned with the poor value meagre sized portions served in the restaurants. Some chic and unusual bars...More
