Warm,so I recommend for those who have the opportunity to visit it not in the middle hours of the day. We parked the car in the parking lot of the mall in front of the funicular (very comfortable) and once we took the funicular (delicious) we climbed. Leaving the station opens a maze of streets that lead to the historical core, the church of St. Mark, the government palace, the tower, the square where they make the marked and finally the cathedral. From there you descend to Jelacic Square where you will finish the tour. City that I liked,cute and suggestive.
