This is a very cool medieval experience! You can pay a nominal fee (3 Euros, I believe) and walk through some exhibits with historic information, and then walk along the wall to get some nice views of the city!

For a few Euro you can climb up a steep metal staircase to reach the top of the city walls. You can walk a few metres in each direction and look down on the people in the road below but see little else.

The view from the top isn’t that fantastic considering that you can get free access to other viewing point with a much better view.
