  • What a lovely central area. The markets and the food stalls were great. We had a meal outdoors and later on cake and coffee at another cafe. Found a brilliant jazz club on the square where we had a brilliant evening. Got a late bite at one of the stalls in the early hours of the morning which was huge and delicious so was shared by all. All places were great. The architecture is amazing the whole place is very pleasing. The climb up the narrow steps in the clock tower was hard work but the view at the top was stunning. As it was Easter not everything was open but there was still plenty to see and do. Would love to visit again in the summer.
  • It's a tourist attraction and one of the biggest old town squares in Europe. The view was amazing and full of history. This place will tell you how this town became the most important trade route in Europe. Don't miss the trumpet player every hour from the watch tower.
