The city walls of Baku encircle the old, medieval part of the city. The walls are pretty massive, and go all the way from the sea level near the Maiden tower, up to Shirvashah's Palace.
Most beautiful is the Double gate entrance.

A stroll in the old town, along the ancient (and partially reconstructed) walls is an absolute must while visiting Baku.
The walls ooze atmosphere and enclose the beautiful old town.
There are numerous restaurants and cafés to enjoy along the way, plus the mandatory gift shops.

These walls run around Old Town and include medieval gates. You can feel the history as you walk around.

Of course when visiting Baku, you will visit old city, so you will see the surrounding wall. So this is really about visiting old city.
