Magnificent original large walls.

These are the best preserved authentic city walls that were fought over that I have come across. They are extraordinarily wide and powerful and great fun to ride a bicycle around.

I biked along the wall while watching the sunset and it was one of the most awesome moments of my trip. Unforgettable! Do it if you can!

Wasn't expecting too much for this visit to the city wall but was pleasantly surprised. The whole is actually quite wide making it easy to wall along and enjoy the sights of the city from up high. Able to cycle around the wall (2-3 hr journey) using the bikes available for hire. We only had 45mins to explore but it... More

We visited the wall during the warmest time of the year. We decided to walk half the length of the wall and it took almost 4 hours. It's possible to rent bikes, but remember there is a rather high deposition. In my opinion you see more if you walk, but it's time consuming. There is not much to do on... More

The wall is well worth your time but 'doing the wall' the right way will make a HUGE difference. If its hot you won't be comfortable walking. The wall is miles around and there are long stretches without much to see. I heard that folks can rent bicycles and did see that they do rent them (both single and bicycles... More

Stairs to climb so if you have problems with knees or hips take it slowly Stalls up top and you are able to hire a bike or golf buggy to get around

Fabulous place to visit, wanted to have stayed longer and walked longer but time did not permit. One of the few regrets - I should have allocated more time for the wall alone . . . .

Interesting view of city life and the parks by looking over the high wall. Men with birds sitting peacefully. Bicycles can be rented or there is a small cart that will take you around for a fee. Some interesting displays to be seen within the wall

We walked half the distance around the top of the wall. We walked as it enabled us to take in the wonderful sights from the top. We walked just on sunset - the best time as It made for some magnificent photographs. Take a drink along with you and enjoy the views.

Be sure to rent a Bike and go for a ride. It is really cool. I thought any way. By getting a bike you can go at your own pace and cover alot of territory in a least amount of time and still stop and see cool things and parts of the city along the way.
