Wandering through the old town was definitely one of my highlights. It's extensive, and gorgeously cool on a hot day. Very photogenic!

A lovely ancient town with narrow winding streets. Small museums, churches, homes, a few cats and shops and restaurants near the bottom by town.

Just love this town. Great restaurants. Friendly people, beautiful port, nice shops. Handmade things in the labyrinth behind the port and so easy to get lost in it.
