Artists at work
Lots and lots of shops selling art pieces or prints in Old Quarters area. Every shop has its distinctivness. You can see the artists doing replicas and they are very good at it. You can either buy the framed pictures or have them unframed for easy carry as hand luggage. Usually when you bargain, have a price in mind, start with the bottom and slowly up the price. Sellers are polite and will somehow close a deal with you.
