It’s a short Layover, you are time constrained so according to you the plan is going to be more or less adjusted. Staying more in one of the places for more pictures ,or more details about history, can minimize the time spent in the next sightseeing stop or even can make us forced to skip it so we can respect your time frame and your scheduled flight in the evening.
