A very nice place to visit. Try the pizza of course, then walk further down and get some ice cream right next to the bridge. Walk up to see the boat museum. Just a nice day. Shops are very touristy.

A great place to walk the streets and explore the many quaint shops and restaurants. Comfortable to see men playing chess in a cafe while sampling blended coffees. The one downside is it is sometimes challenging to find a parking spot.

Such a quaint village! We enjoyed just walking around and in and out of all the stores and eating. Kids loved the bridge.
