Great for wanderers. The curved streets and limited traffic lead to kids playing ball and locals chatting on the shady side of the street.

Visit Old Town Vieux Ville as it is well worth the time, one thing I love about Europe is there is always an old and a new town so there is a choice. Rustic old buildings, restaurants and shops, statuary interesting sights.
