  • A beautiful square, the beating heart of the city, livable anytime with its shops, bars, restaurants really for everyone with a delightful fountain. Mandatory safety stop in the city.

  • Passes when you walk in the central parts of the city. There are nicer and better restaurants in other parts of the city, but there are a lot of hustle and bustle here. Clearly worth a visit.

  • This very lively at night and is ideal for your children to play while you take a good ice cream on the terrace.
