Keep in mind that buying a property is an activity that most people make only once in their life, for this reason, it is important that when you buy a property you have to know that you’re okay with living around the area. This means that you have to check the environment, see if there is any access to public transportation and local services.
 
If you are from England, and you have secured your housing or you’ve already found a place to stay, it would be a nice idea to plan your tour by walking; it is recommended to look for a map. They are generally available in any store, but you will definitely find one in the tourism office.
