“Full of Character, Restaurants and Shops”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

We first got shown around this area as part of a guided walking tour which we then toured on our own and later went back for a meal. There were also a lot of artists shops in this area which were great to visit.

“A Must See”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

It's easy to take the funicular down and explore the shops and restaurants. Be sure to check out the fudgery, amazing dark chocolate. Plus, a neat kitchen shop and homemade scarf and tie shop, lots of people watching and activity.

“Lovely”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

So much to do, so little time! Beautiful place, like a little chunk of old Europe plopped down on our continent. Definitely not to be missed. Outstandingly lovely.

Reviewed 16 July 2012

Loved walking around Lower Town, taking the ferry across to Levis, eating at street cafes, and going to the market.
