  • Explore this picturesque area without limits. Walk and get lost in the streets and canals. Watch out for bikes as usual.

  • I lived here for a short break. I must say the truth that before my bearings jo spent three days especially to understand the ways of the team. Not so simple. For the rest, absolutely recommended.
