nice summer walk with restaurants and bars, amazing to think people still living in the buildings with loads of small alleyways to explore, it makes you feel your in another time.

We far prefer to enter the Vila Vella through the arch ,walk through the winding alleyways and then return, taking in the dramatic sea and coastline views, by the pedestrian road. There are 4 restaurants within the walls and also a snack bar. A must...More

The old town is interesting to see with lots of shops and bars. There are plenty of restaurants and the shade in the old town can be a welcome relief from the sun

Forgot just what a lovely resort Tossa is, will be revisiting soon. The old town and the castle are outstanding and you can wander for hours.

Fabulous place to stroll around, we made a special day trip from Barcelona and the town didn’t disappoint. Lots of little lanes to explore, also caught the little train that took us through streets we wouldn’t have walked through. Well worth a visit
