This is a wonderful street to stroll, shop, get gelato, get cannoli, eat at awesome restaurants that are located every block and take in the atmosphere. A very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

Great place to stroll the shops and get a bite to eat. Expect lots of crowds though and the streets are very narrow.
