Good to know
You can experience this destination at its very best from April through mid-June and mid-September through mid-October, as summers are extremely crowded. Booking well in advance is recommended, to ensure availability and reasonable pricing. Once you’re here, it’s easy to access most of the city on foot, since it’s so small. Driving a car isn’t really possible since no cars are allowed inside the walled city, but you can use taxis to take you anywhere outside the city for day trips and they are reasonably priced.
