Customer Travel Tip: Book at least 2 full days.

Liked: There is something for everyone - whether you are a young student thirsty for partying or a couple looking to spend some quality time or a family with children, there are sights and activities for everyone. The city has a great atmosphere, it is very green and clean, well organized and easy to go around.

Disliked: Sometimes it is a bit difficult to cross the street as the cyclists do not stop even though they are part of traffic and should give priority to pedestrians. They seem to think they are immortal and untouchable.
