The most impressive thing about this city is it's cleanliness. A very classic style old City. Can get a tour guide here. Better is to move by foot. Taking the car inside is not advisable as it's very crowded.

The audio works well. Its advantage is that you may stay looking as long as you like. 2 hours may be short if you like to really look with some detail.
