  • Colourful little village! So many nooks and crannies and little hidden alleyways to walk through. There’s an abundance of cafes with rooftops to take photos on, heaps of free photo spaces with props and souvenir shops. Can easily spend 2-3 hours walking around. We walked all the way to the bottom and caught the bus back to the top. Signs and directions are everywhere.
  • Amazing day! Just know up front, there’s lots of snack opportunities…would have like a couple more sit down eat places. But, understanding what the village is, no problem. Very unique heritage, and super clever way to show off the culture. Loved the stamp idea and the excellent t map to get us through the villiage. Be prepared to walk up and down the hills. Go with a curious mindset and you will have a great adventure!!
