Most of the city is built on hills and connected by steep flights of stairs which can be quite strenuous; you can always get a taxi to the highest point and make your way down on foot. Rainbow Street is a famous vibrant street in the city adorned with a colorful canopy of umbrellas where restaurants and shops can be found.By Bicycle
