“Amazing to walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2012

I was really surprised at the amount of wall that has been retained and maintained and the areas that can be explored without cost or restriction. Great place to visit, will go back in summer one day when there are more things open. Lovely and quiet in January but many museums and restaurants are closed.

“Lovely in the snow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

Walking part or all of the old town walls is a "must do"! The views of the city streets/tops of homes with all their lovely shingles, private gardens and churches are worth it just for some photo ops! It was snowing the last time I was there and almost Christmas so it was all the more magical. It is well maintained though you are actually able to walk only a portion of it but it is long enough. We enjoyed looking at all the replaced pieces of the wall that had been donated from people all over the world. The teens especially enjoyed this part. I would try and do this either in the morning when there is less foot traffic or late afternoon before the sun sets. Other than climbing up a flight of stairs it is not strenuous though a bit uneven floor. Try it! You'll be glad you did!

“Walk the wall to experience unique views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

The fact that these century -old walls are still in such a wonderfully restored condition because so many people value it so much as to donate huge some to keep as it is.

“Really interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

Really interesting to climb up and walk around most of the town. Get views from an elevated position. Plan where you enter and leave and your destination to avoid any back-tracking.
