There are lots of things to do here. Many shops, restaurants, churches, and historic places to see. It is very safe here with a lot of police guarding the streets days and nights.

2 hours should be plenty of time to walk around and visit the church & possibly the museums. This is definitely not a whole day thing, after 2-3 hours you would want to get some rest or go have something to eat.
