The square meets you after having entered the Sea Gate. The Town Clock stands there among the old buildings. Good to know that a rare public toilet is very close to the square.

As soon as you walk into the old town through the main gate you will see the Piazza of The Arms It's a nice place to spend time but back streets in the old town are generally more interesting and cheaper for food and drink.

This is a nice little square where you can grab a drink or a bite to eat and sit back and relax and people watch after strolling around.

This is the large square after the main entry gate to the Old City. There are cafes on one side. Most importantly, the only public (paying) toilets in the Old City are located to the left upon entry.

It is filled with restaurants where you can find something to eat or drink (or eat and drink!) as you people watch!
