Easy to climb to the parapet on the top of the old city wall. There are great views of the town and surrounding area. Lots of history here. And there is no charge for walking on the old wall. Great for taking pictures.

There are no fees. Access to the city walls is at stairways in a couple of locations. I don't recall if it was ever closed. It is a nice walk on the upper part of the wall around part of the city, which is covered. The... More
