Although it is quieter, it's no less nice. The streets and shops were very nice to walk by and window shop. It's not rushed or crowded like the Upper City and there's plenty to see. It's worth the visit.

This area used to be the shipping hub but has since changed to a docking station for ships. There are many nice cafes and restaurants in this area. Worth exploring.

We walked through this area, curiosity was our only intention but cam across a wonderful private art gallery with sumptuous original pieces from Spain and Holland, some were very Bosch inspired.

Wonderful history could spend days wondering the streets. Most plagues are in French, pity that QR codes are not included somewhere near the plagues so you could get the information. Walk the port district during the day and night. Sunday nights is bin night. Avoiding...More

Be here. Low point. Take the air of the water. Like hundreds of years ago. Look around to have a feeling of being new. Free.

Very busy port but have no idea how many berths there are. Suggest you contact the Port Authority or the Tourism Board.
