What an experience to walk around such an atmospheric city at sunset when the restaurants are full and there is excitement in the air. The tour will take you through the Stradun which is the main street, and by the Old City Harbour where you will see the boats gently swaying in the dimming light. Enjoy a night cap at one of the little bars that are set in the walls around the town
