Nice place to visit when the Corona virus issues passes - renting a car was the best solution to move around and go places.

The Walled City is beautiful, but it's also busy and expensive. Be mindful that you'll be harassed all the time.

Walled City has historic charm for sure. El Centro noisy and very touristy. Liked walking in nearby San Diego and Getsamani neighborhoods.

It was my second time and my wife's first time to visit. Love the city, love the people. Old town was a great place to visit and we felt completely safe walking around even at night.

Super affordable, easily accessible, the area is a giant circle so it's hard to get lost, but people are very helpful and kind.
