The main tourist street of 


was always full of foreigners:

Streets in the old town were very narrow. They were also crowded, but this was due to the hot weather and searing sun. On these streets, you'll always find shade and a cool breeze:

There were lots of cafes in the old town  - everything here was aimed at tourists:

Interesting idea with a summer terrace. Just put cushions on the steps and bring coffee and ice cream:
