We went on a city tour, and loved Old Town. The churches are incredible, as are all the people. Charming Indigenous weavers and painters selling their work, as well as contemporary folks holding rallies in the old plaza, excellent restaurants, and tons of history everywhere you go. Go prepared with sunblock, water, and a hat - even if you never burn, the altitude will get you. Pace yourself, rest and hydrate. You'll have a blast.

Colonial buildings and narrow streets, with walks up and down hill, make up the old town, now a Unesco World Heritage site. With churches visible from just about every corner, and local shops hidden in doorways, the town provides a quite different experience. Taxi cabs abound, with local police providing a high profile presence, good for local people and tourists alike.

Old Town is great because it is ice with all the churches and shops. This is a nice place because the architecture is beautiful. They have the Good Friday parade in Old Town which is for the biggest holiday of the year. The only thing is that you shouldn’t be there alone at night and bring valuables at any time of day because there is theft and just not very safe at night. I still recommend you go to Old Town because it is beautiful.

Even with the rain and cloud all afternoon I still had a lovely time exploring the top of the mountain. Make sure you dress in layers!!!!
