A great place. Loads to see and do. You will need suitable walking shoes. Lots of up and down hills. Local business eateries very competitively priced. Parking outside city walls €8 for 12 hours. Totally recommend lots of places are free.

This is an amazing city with a depth of culture and history. The cafes and street musicians are fantastic. Recommend going along the waterfront but also up through the city, just get lost wandering the streets, it's amazing!
