“During Sinulog, I would suggest a visit to the famous Basilica Del Sto. Niño. For interior geeks like me, the beautiful mixture of Spanish Baroque, Greco-Roman and Neoclassic concepts of one of the oldest historical sites here in Cebu is a must-see!”

Be adventurous and create your own pizza masterpiece at Pizza Republic. Customers can dress their pizza with as many toppings as they want and choose from over 60 ingredients for a fixed price. The taste of the pizza really depends on the toppings, so carefully choose the ingredients that will taste good together. They also do ready-made pizzas for the less adventurous customers at the same price.
