  • The Canal tourism magazine photos in somewhere of would never let such as clock tower. If you go to the back and interesting shops throughout, I can't turn in one day. Go train or car, comfortable and useful. It is recommended to stay overnight and taste the atmosphere of the evening and early morning. Excellent hotel, not looking for a local shop, enjoy.
