We arrived by train from Padova. Confusingly, the train service was called 'Autobus' by Trenitalia. It's not a bus but actually a diesel railcar. It's a short walk from the station in Cittadella to the walled part. There are four gates through the walls but only one has the pedestrian entrance to the wall walk. It's the furthest from the station. Of course. Not a big deal, it's a short walk right across the old town. When we arrived it had been market day when all the central streets were full of stalls but were now being taken down and packed up. The wall is not for the decrepit or the faint of heart, there are plenty of medieval stairs to negotiate. It's well worth the effort, the walk all around is about a mile but there is no need to hurry. It's remarkable to think of the manpower and material that was needed back in the 1200's to build this and it's still standing. This must be one of the best preserved examples of its type. Compared to the wall in Lucca, for example, we think this one is shorter, higher and much narrower.
