The fortifications are part of a serial UNESCO World Heritage site, so are unmissable for anyone who prioritizes such sites on their itineraries. The walls are impressive, but in the end, they are just old walls. Gates, such as Porta di Giacomo, provide architectural highlights.

Built by the Venetians to protect the city, but the walls were never attacked. This is the reason why it is kept still today, after 4-500 years in such a good condition. Excellent place to walk.

We walked right the way round the walls. With a short stop it took about 1.45hrs. One of the nicest walks we have ever done. Beautiful views from all sides. Even the upward stretch was not too hard. So well upkept all the way round....More

Mure Venete are imposing even today. You can get a great view of the modern part of the city from there as well as admire some of the impressive gates (San Giacomo is my favorite!).

Wall was build for defensive reasons, but nowadays provides a unique view on lower city. It's several hundreds of meters long, anytime you want you can get a stop to enjoy incredible view.

You can walk up there are paths all the way ... however it’s steep too ... you get the Figuerola to the top and walking down with a stroller would be easier ... so much more to see on foot .. enjoy

Hi, Yes it should not be a problem as long as the person who pushes the stroller is able to walk uphill (there is a narrow sidewalk that should be OK to walk with a stroller)
