A perfect city for exploring on foot with a shop around every corner. Much of the inner city can be easily walked through, however, walking sometimes includes crowds, uneven streets, heavy traffic and narrow sidewalks. If that’s a problem there are plenty of taxis to ride in or scooters to rent.
How to Travel
- Bus & Train -public transportation is operated by a state-owned company and all the buses and trams are blue in colour.
- Taxi – in a restaurant or a hotel you can ask them to call the taxi service for you.
- Car – Rental cars are easy to get and hotels have good parking prices. Once in the main city, you can often walk so we suggest returning them when you arrive.
- Bike – The best way to get around, other than walking, is by bike. If you don’t mind hills, you can bike anywhere. If that’s not for you, stick to the inner city with your bike.
Just a few miles away you can enjoy history and heritage, drink wine or relax. You can wander the hills or be lulled by the fountains. If you have time, the attractions can fill 3 days. We’ve highlighted the best ones here.
Because of the number of sights to see, some first-time visitors should start with an organized tour.
The leading tour operators use local historians to lead their tours. Guides offer walking tours, including visits to monuments, museums, and historic locations, as well as gourmet tours. Tour prices can be high, but most visitors see them as the highlight of their trip. In addition, there are also family oriented tours as well as those that include activities for children.
