Make sure you have the guide book in case you get lost as the line is missing in a couple of places. However in getting lost you also find other interesting things. I did this twice, once on my own at a slow pace and...More

We followed "The Red Thread"with a booklet that we bought in the tourist information center. It was very useful and it was an excellent way to quickly see the main landmarks of the city. Around 1.5 - 2.0 walking tour.
