Great sights, sounds, restaurants and local inspired shops. It's lively and a really entertaining spot to sit and enjoy a cocktail at one of the many restaurant patios.

The amphitheatre comprises many ancient buildings which now house coffee shops/bars/restaurants. There is a good atmosphere and it is pleasant to sit with a coffee and 'people watch',
