It’s a great entrance to the old city, the photo does not do it justice. We spent 2 days here and would have happily spent more time.

The walking tour starts from here. The arch acts as a magnet with its colored glass. Ity came to life with the crowd of people wearing period costumes and wandering in and out of the arch and main street.
