“8 miles of Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Got a 203 bus into the old town and walked back to the South gate of the City wall entrance fee 54REM per person. Climbed the steps up-to the top of the South Gate with the intension of hiring a bike but the queue was massive...good tip here walk to the East gate which I suspect was quicker than waiting in the queue! Hired a tandem from there 80 Rem for 100 mins and cycled the remainder of the wall (even with photo stops only took 75mins) back to the South gate great fun and well worth the effort, another great experience.

“Great Architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Not as big as the Great Wall of course but every bit as magnificent. The architecture and long living structure is incredible to see.

“20 minutes worth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Got to the top of the wall and spent most of our time watching the traffic nothing else to really say about the place.

“worth a short side trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

It's well-preserved, pretty and historic. You can rent a bike a go around the whole wall. Definitely worth a short visit if you're in the area but I wouldn't call it a major attraction.

It was really fun to 'rent' a Tandem bike and zoom around..taking about an hour to finish the ride. Lots of Interesting scenery outside and inside the walled area. Please Try It. I am Not Young...but found it quite Easy on the Tandem...smile.
