Been many times but is always a delight. It’s spooky how the city seems to hide from view and it’s always a surprise to find yourself on the ramparts with such amazing views over the area. It’s a comfortable stroll around and then winding through...More

The extent and scale of the ramparts at Montreuil-sur-mer is surprising and encloses virtually all the town. There could be more information regarding when and how the ramparts were constructed. The fact that there are no guardrails makes the ramparts highly dangerous for children and...More

Highly recommended, at any time of the day, or even early evening. The wall offers beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and of the little streets of the town. It is a very, light, pleasurable walk with many benches to stop and admire the landscape.

You can have a walk on the remparts. During an hour you visit the towers and strongholds of the town. Several splendid views of the surrounding scenery on top.

It is easy to walk around the complete town walls and admire the views of the surrounding countryside and the steep drops off the walls. Only a few kilometres and can be completed in less than two hours with stops to admire the views.

This was a lovely place, however, sheer drops of extreme heights should be taken into account if visiting with younger children.

There are some wonderful views as you go round but a leisurely walk will certainly be under an hour.

Hmm - lots of cobblestones I'm afraid. It's a lovely wee town but it might be a bit challenging for your wife. The ramparts are flat once you get up there - but we are talking about steep mediaeval stairs to access them... More
