Tip If you are planning on walking through the Historic Jewish quarter to see the sights, wear flat, sturdy and comfortable shoes. The streets are on a hill and also are all cobbled with lumpy stones. It looks very picturesque but the stones make for an uneven surface that I found it difficult to walk on in flip flops. Heels are a definite no-no!
