Recommended as its the best place to walk as it is only for pedestrians and get to know with Krakow. Many tourist shops, cafes and restaurants.

This is one of the nicest old town I’ve been around Europe. It’s not big, so do yourself a favor and go for a walk with no map and gps. Get into the lanes and streets. No regret and you will find nice places around.
