Very impressive from the historical and architectural perspective, miracle they’re still there. However, they didn’t strike a particular impression on me in the divided city with more walls, barriers and fences. Also, not sure it was possible to walk on any stretch of the wall...More

The Venitian Walls wind around Nicosia like embracing arms. The Walls were pertection from medieval harm. It's magnificient architecture and strength allowed enterprise and safety in the city. Just imagine in the 1600's, living in such a protected nice place.
