It really a very special experience walking the medieval city on a regular day or on market days . Apart from the architecture you can have a nice walk around the stalks.

Wonderful Italian inspired architecture. Narrow streets with surprises around the corner. Nice shops fir quality souvenirs as well as chocolate etc. many cafes and restaurants. Gaslights have been electrified but add ambiance.

Type in “Rue de la Republique” in your Sat Nav and you’ll find a relative quiet long street, with free parking spaces and at a max 5 minute walk from the old city centre.
