Shh! Secret tiffany treasure. Not sullied by crowds of your groups. Sit on bench, relax feet & mind in the beauty of another time. My visitors were in awe! But keep it quiet.

We saw this mosaic art when we visited the city. It’s really easy to get to and we really liked it as you didn’t need to pay or queue. It’s a really well done mosaic beauty. You can’t stop staring at it.
