City, Local Experience, Museums / Culture, Religious Heritage
Kid Friendly: No. Kid Friendly: Yes. Tots in a pushchair or in a back carrier are fine. Teenagers are fine, although some kids find historical and religious sites as well as details of architecture extremely boring. This is not designed as a kids' tour but sites really fun for kids can be included in itinerary if booked well in advance, and includes additional entrance fees for additional or alternative sites.
The Old city is not exhausting but constructed on hills with narrow medieval and earlier streets full of bazaars and crowds. There are a great number of steps and no alternative accesses to many of the sites, however, my route can be virtually all downhill. I suggest that you should bring with you comfortable walking shoes.
