      ... are cobblestone and you can get wonderfully lost and soak up the atmosphere here. We went to a popular buffet style place that locals and tourists alike go to. We paid for our a la carte items and then sat in the back, where we noticed later that all the locals went to first. it seems the "Bizniz Launch" is back there.
