You will be visiting the only remnants of the city wall from the 13th Century with the city’s first water pipes, which are hidden and locked in the basement of a modern building. Your adventure will continue through a hidden door on the ground of a famous park area, where thousands of people pass by every day without knowing about this door. You will climb down to find the historical walls of a Roman Fort and of the Royal Palace from the Middle Ages!
