Getting hungry we walked through the huge central market which was filled with fruit stalls and ate so many strawberries and watermelon as well as bakery snacks. Then we found this hidden restaurant in the old town where we paid 3 euro for a massive plate of lunch and soup which made us very happy! We walked out of the touristy ...
