After the walk, why not go for a drink or a bite to eat at one of the many trendy restaurants and bars on the water front?

A walk through the city’s most beautiful park is the perfect way to get to know a new flame or enjoy a relaxing moment with a loved one. The massive park is connected by a number of well manicured paths, lined with shady trees, as well as elegant statues and fountains. Its centerpiece is a small but picturesque lake where paddle boats can be hired, the perfect way to escape the crowds and get a little alone time. If things are going well, stop by the huge rose garden to smell some of the 12,000 flowers on display.
