This walls are a testament of the Venetian occupation that existed in this area, as very few other 'remnants' exist on the island. They are well built, no wonder they can be seen even from the satellite view.

The walls represent the most advance technology of their time for defence. Constructed by Italian architects to protect the city.

Not sure I would go to see just the walls but as part of a day in Nicosia you should look. Better signage would really improve it.

The very first thing when in Lefkosia is to walk around these Venetian walls and imagine how was the city like in medieval times. Visit the three main gates, especially Famagusta Gate.

the walls are long and nice. But we could not find an entrance. Finally, we went through some stairs and found an 'entrance' but we were disappointed since the area around the walls is not clean, there are 'strange' men walking around, dog waste, waste...More

The walls are well maintained and it is impressive how they have been incorporated into the city and how the city has adapted to the walls. The shape the walls form is amazing. There is a lot of history packed in these walls!
