  • Definite must see. Moderate hike from the docks but worth the effort. Most of the shops and boutiques along the way offer a variety of gifts and food items
  • The cathedral is beautiful but the outside is under restoration construction so it's difficult to walk around it plus you can't get good photos without having construction vehicles in the pictures. The interior is quite beautiful though.
  • Interesting little town, popular among the tourists. Sitting next to the riverside, enjoying the view with the cup of the coffee and very delicious gelato than soak up the atmosphere of the city centre. My favourite shopping mall there. Love it!😎🤗
  • Extremely impressive church. We came during an organ playing and the place is absolutely amazing to check out. The ceiling is painted very nicely. I would make this a must see.
  • Unbelievably beautiful inside. You just have to sit there and admire the whole experience of the building.
