I had a great time there. I would recommend evening walks, visiting harbour, shopping and dining in any of those nice restaurants in the center.

Great place for a holiday has something for everyone; nightlife, quiet spots, history, scenery, walking etc. Good variety of places to eat at with various price ranges. Friendly people.
