Customer Travel Tip: Stay if you have to have a stopover somewhere

Liked: The weather was nice...

Disliked: Overall I felt like I was in the Armpit of Europe. It was dirty, grungy and hot. I never felt really safe (and I have traveled solo all over Europe and the US). There is not much to do besides seeing the old harbor with its 6 stall fish market. I left a whole day early and was happy and relieved to leave.
