Wonderful hotel, we enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra night. The service was wonderful and one of the nicest breakfast buffets in Europe. Rooms quite nice and the hotel is charming!

... before Emperor Charles V fortified the city with strong walls and a new castle, when business flourished and most of the buildings which are there today were built. There is still a Roman amphitheatre, part of which has been excavated, and a Roman theatre. We bought a guide book (as you can see!), and wandered through the old streets.
