To reach the main part of town, you can walk from the castle or straight from the bus stop. To do so, you will see a road immediately to your left or another in front of you, also heading left. Either road will take  you another road – only 1 or 2 minutes walk – where you should turn right and then walk straight. Go straight ahead until you see the Tourist Information Center on your left – only 5 minutes walk from the bus top.
