Visited at the weekend and the weather was fabulous. Got some beautiful views of the port from the ferris wheel. Could go round another few times for the money though. It was 5 euro and we went round 3 times.

This place is a public transport hub. You can reach the market and can get buses to every location from this place. The street and buildings are too old and will give a nice touch of romanticism...!!!
