Not far from the city center, and very convenient to visit. We were here last month, the autumn view was amazing.

The old city wall still exists only in sections, some much larger than others. The biggest section surrounds Xuanwuhu Park and requires a RMB30 fee to enter and climb. The wall is amazing, but there's really not much need to climb it or walk along...More

There are 2 entrance to the City Wall. If you want to see the whole of Nanjing, this is a great place to see it. Can walk on top of the wall to experience the ancient Nanjing

A great city to walk around and explore. And the wall is amazing and to think that it remains after all of these days and years is great. Great for a walk on a nice morning or afternoon.
