The town is very small but very cute! It has orange trees lining the main streets with oranges on the trees. The souvenir shops are not full of crap; they actually have very cool things in them and views that are just top-notch.

An overwhelmingly tourist-centric town, and it is commensurately expensive, but only depending on what kind of shop you’re in. Not too bad, though. Lots of great places, and an absolutely beautiful city. Go see the Valley of the Mills!
