Hordes of tourists and accommodating trinket shops bring this town down a notch or two in my book. If there were half the people and better weather, it would deserve a star. Most likely though, better weather brings in more scavaging tour buses.
I did manage to find the small, unpromoted, uncrowded, yet amazing micro-museum. A watercolor painting done inside seed, a chessboard on a pinhead, and sculptures in side the eye of a needle even INSIDE a hollowed out hair. Microscopes provided.
