I did a walking tour of the old town and loved it. Beautiful baroque architecture.A visit to the Monasteries and Churches are well worth it, although some don't allow photography inside the building. A note of advice, watch out for pickpockets. Always be on alert....More

Take your time walking slow due to the altitude and do it in the morning. Lots of people, sounds, cafes and yes lots of churches but its worth a couple of hrs to enjoy the ambience of the place.

Well worth browsing the old streets and the incredible churches. The roads are quite hilly which is tough if you're not acclimatised to the high altitude, but as long as you take it steady it's fine.

Specially the churches are well taken care of. At first I thought 5 dollars was expensive to visit The De Jesus Chapel but taking into consideration you have a private guide for the visit it's fair.

Safety and the lack of yes again, safe public transportation make this world heritage city a true challenge. With too many churches and musea around, I missed the easy getting around and a clear and decent city map.

Explore old town in the morning, while the sun is usually shining! There is so much to see and do, many coffee shops, squares with park benches, and more.
