The streets are full of rainbow 🌈 coloured buildings, colourful stairs, umbrellas and more. There are many vintage coffee shops and restaurants around, where you can get a cup of Turkish tea or lunch. We spend the whole day there and surprisingly on the way we saw a guy with a pet monkey 🙈 she was so cute, but a little bit aggressive.
