  • Is very beautiful, is where is is it more interesting of the city, is can upload in funicular or to foot, there are that go to the viewpoint that has beautiful views, then the neighborhood is small and is it can go very well to foot. The union between the part low from the high, is of access simple. San Marco is in the upper (Gradec), also the City Hall, the Parliament.
