We walked half way round the walls. This comprises a broad boulevard with trees along both sides for most of the way, so one is substantially in the shade. It is delightful, above the crowds, noise and traffic of the city.

Wonderful view of the city inside and outside of the city walls. About 2.5 miles around. Lots of walkers, joggers and bicyclists. Great way to get some exercise while enjoying the views and people watching.
