“This really is a "must-see"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

It is just amazing to know you are walking in the footsteps of people that have gone before you so many centuries ago. You must take a tour of the castle. We were there in July and made sure we were the first in line in the morning. it was very interesting and really gives you the history of the city and the era. It was not as crowded as I thought it was going to be for high season. I highly recommend you stay at the Best Western inside the medieval city.

“Stepping back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

Its a truly magical place and never ceases to amaze me. The ideal time to visit is spring as its mostly closed in the winter. The summer is very busy with tourists.

Old medieval town-fortress very much alive, with shops, cafes, restaurants, museums all naturally co-existing with tourists

“Love it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

It's worth a visit. 14th of July; Bastille day, fabulous fireworks display,
Pleasant atmosphere. The music theatre has very famous artists during the month of July.
If you are lucky free music gigs during the summer.
Otherwise good restaurants.
