Nice town with a lot of stores. Perfect for shopping and eating on the evening. Many good restaurants, either you want to have a nice quier or just a snack with party and good music.

Plenty of cute little charming streets with places to eat. The harbour is lovely and scenic, I recommend dining at one of the restaurants by the harbour. I was able to explore the Old Town in a day trip.
