While visiting the Chora Church, we took some time to investigate the old city walls of Constantinople. Considering how old they are, they are surprisingly intact.
Having said that, the section near Chora is not as complete as others. There are steps to climb up to the different levels, but few parts have railings or poles up or down the steps or along the edges. I managed only the first level, and sat and watched while others scaled a near-vertical set of ‘steps’ (more like ledges a few inches deep) to the next level. Not for the faint-hearted, but worth seeing if you’re nearby.
I understand some other sections of the walls have been better conserved and restored,.
