    It was maybe 1.5 miles from my hotel, so made a good target destination for a couple of long walks (there and back). I took a book and very much enjoyed myself.  more »

    You can walk in that park in the shadow of the trees. It is beautiful and family friendly. In the city center close to the flower market, you can even smell the flowers from there.  more »
