Know before you go
- This tour is a 3- weather tour and runs in sun, rain, and wind - even strong showers.
- In summer, don't forget a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. A little bottle of water can't hurt either. A jacket or thin coat should suffice in the winter months.
- The tour is a relaxed walk; no need to rush. There is always time to stop for photos, and no one will begrudge you a bathroom break.
- To experience the unique groups around the city up close, the guide sticks to streets and squares on this city tour. Admire monuments from their exteriors; museum visits and interior explorations (with a couple of exceptions) are not part of the program.
