What makes this city so picturesque and quaint also makes it strenuous to get around in. The city center is accessible mostly on foot only and therefore, walking will be your best way of becoming familiar with its beauty. However, cobble stone streets, uneven pavement, unsuspecting steps, even potholes are common. Please watch your footing! Also, eventhough the pedestrian has the right of way on a crosswalk, most drivers do not respect it! Always make eye contact with the driver before crossing and never assume anything. Pedestrians are killed weekly on crosswalks ... even by policemen!
