“Beautiful views”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Very pretty area to walk around, particularly the breakwater out to the lighthouse. Check it out and take some pictures, but go a little further into the city to eat--the restaurants right in the harbor are more expensive and not quite as nice as the ones only a few blocks away.

“Stood the test of time”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

As you walk along the picturesque harbour front, it is quite amazing to think what these buildings have seen and survived - earthquakes, world wars etc

“Beautiful, picturesque harbor... very busy...”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

This town is absolutely beautiful, but it is filled with many tourists. Take time to disappear down one of the hundreds of alleyways, they are all beautiful and quaint, and much quieter than the main roads around the Venetian town.

“Always awesome”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

I'll never tire of this harbour its just as beautiful in the day time as it is in the evening. A great walk around to the light house, plenty of places to sit along the way.

“David without Elke”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Everything, the buildings Very very old. Most of all the locals in the evening out numbered the visitors and there was no trouble, you felt totally safe
