Spend a few hours walking around this beautiful old town, a new surprise around every corner. If you are there on a Friday the market is one of the best you will ever see.

Beautiful city with lots of tiny allies to explore and lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. There are a few canals which make for a great romantic atmosphere. Its all pleasant and tranquil. Definite must.

A delight to see and not so touristy that you can't enjoy it. Lovely mixture of restaurants and bars.

Be aware, this town regards visitors as people that need to be educated. They do not allow shops to sell alcohol after 8 pm. If there is one thing I do not need in this world, it is governments try to regulate my private affairs....More

In spite of the lack of classic breakfast options, la vieille ville offers significant dining options and nice views. not the cheapest dining, but a good variety cost and quality dining. Terrace friendly.

It's a nice stroll between the little streets of 'vieille ville', with the spouvernir shops, typical restaurants, the renovated buildings along the waters, the image of old times. Romantic and spheric.

It’s a great part of the city and has a lot of history within it. Ressembles most French towns of that time but would recommend walking along the canal to the old prison. Quite touristy so would avoid weekends.

Cross the little bridges and wander around the maze of streets and shops. Beautiful, medieval buildings, quaint, narrow streets and a myriad of shops one could spend a week exploring.
