Walking the city walls is another of the essential things to see and do in Dubrovnik. I think doing this and seeing the city from all different angles really shows how impressive the Old Town is. It’s about two kilometres long and they encircle the entire old town which means you get to see it all from up there! They are up to 25m high and this does vary so there are plenty of stairs. There are also towers, fortifications and a large fortress. It’s lots of fun.
One of the world's greatest experiences! This is the one MUST-SEE experience in Dubrovnik! Walk it in the morning or later in the day when it will be less crowded. The views of the city inside the walls and the mountains and Adriatic outside the walls are simply spectacular. We spent 4 hours up there, visiting every little pathway off the main ramparts, but could have stayed up there for 6 hours. Spin around and look in every direction often so you don't miss anything. I must have taken close to 1000 photos. Note: It's deceivingly flat-looking from street level, bit be prepared to go up and down several hundred steps! But worth every step!
This place is definitely worth a visit if you are in Dubrovnik. You can see far out into the sea and into the town. Make sure you take water and a hat! We went in October and we were still super hot. There is an ice cream and drinks hut half way around. Amazing views and you can even see the homes of people living within the walls.
Very interesting historic monument surrounding the old town of Dubrovnik. It's a little expensive to walk along them given that you can see them much better when you're not on them. They can also be viewed brilliantly from the outside of the walls as well as an night when they are illuminated. We'll worth a visit.
I forget how expensive it was here, although like everything in Dubrovnik, it was pricey. Although, walking around this historic town was one of the highlights of my Mediterranean trip. Fantastic views to see at your own pace. Lots of stairs so be aware, but completely worth it!
The Old Town City wall walk is definitely a highlight of our visit in Dubrovnik. As you walk along the wall, you get to view the city and the Adriatic sea with a very unique vantage point. The various lookouts along the way provides you with great photo opportunities.
Visiting Dubrovnik was amazing, and not just because of the fame that Game of Thrones has brought it. The wall tour gives you quite literally a different perspective and when you look out over all of the orange tiled roofs and realise that these very walls have been repelling invaders from centuries ago up until modern times, it lends itself again to changing perspectives, but this time more of the metaphysical kind. As for tips to seeing the walls: GO EARLY. Cruise ships come into Dubrovnik in the late morning/early afternoon, so do yourself a favor and beat the crowd. Also bring water if it's a hot day..... It ends up being quite a hike and shops are pretty sparse.
It's a bit of a hike on a hot day. Try to get there early to avoid the herds, especially if there is a cruise ship docked. Think it opens at 8.30am. Also take a private boat trip off Captain Joe, you'll find his stand near a restaurant called Peppers Eatery (which also is a must, best food). Cptn. Joe is a funny guy very relaxed attitude, the small boat is a bit dated but good fun
If you are a fan of Game of Thrones, like medieval stuff, castles or just really pretty structures you will love the walls of Dubrovnik (or the entire city to be honest). The entire thing is visible from almost any angle, and they have some fun lights during night, so you can enjoy them at any time of day. The entire city has the same feeling, so I would recommend stoping by for a bit.
A must do when visiting the old town of Dubrovnik. The wall is very much still in 'original' condition but is well maintained. Visitors are able to walk continuously around the entire city on the wall itself. Like most tourist attractions in Dubrovnik the entrance tickets are fairly expensive but I would still suggest a visit to the walls. Note you are not able to leave the walls and then return on the same ticket, so I would allow yourself 1-3 hours to explore the walls.
One of the most stunning pieces of architecture in Dubrovnik, and a definite must see. I'd advise getting there earlier in the morning as It's considerably less busy. It's a good hour and a half walk if you're in reasonable shape (including photo stops), so make sure to take plenty of water. It's also free entry if you have a Dubrovnik card, so if you're looking at visiting some of the museum's, definitely give it a look as you can save yourself quite a bit of money. Won't be forgetting the views in a hurry either!
Definitely a highlight. Very touristy, but still worth it. It's a long walk all the way around but it affords spectacular views of the city and the sea. Best to go either early in the morning or late afternoon to avoid the midday sun. Don't forget to bring water - there are places along the way to purchase, but fairly expensive.
Very scenic place. You must walk the full wall so you won’t miss all the nice spot to take picture. You should also walk out to the outside fortress to see another shot they shoot Games of Thrones. If you have time, find some coffee shop or restaurant you can sit and appreciate the amazing view here
A beautiful morning walk around the city walls of Dubrovnik. Good to note that they open at 8 not 9am. This made all the difference to us as we were aiming to conquer before our 10am checkout. We stopped along the way for photos and a rest stop but not at the three or four cafes en route. In all, took us only 45m not the quoted 1hr 15. Very few people at that hour which probably made a difference.
Fantastic views of an extremely well preserved walled city. With around 2000 steps, it's not for those with weak knees or difficulty walking. It takes about 1.5 hours including stopping for views. It can also be quite hot on sunny days. There are places to stop and buy refreshments along the way. Well worth the cost.
Long walk along the perimeter of the Old Town. The walls are ancient with a lot of historic interest. There are restaurants and places to rest along the way. Entry fee applicable. Not ideal for very old people. Spectacular views of the Adriatic and inner city from high above. Must see.
Impressive structure that’s a must visit while you’re visiting Dubrovnik. The wall has played important role in the towns history. Fun locations and facts relate to Game of Throne episodes. Several companies offer walking tours that can be bought online or on-site :)
Great perspective on Dubrovnik's old City! You can get tickets just inside the gate for about 150 Kuna per person (July 2018) or there are many companies that advertise guided tours. If you want a more informative walk, use the guides - there are no plaques or signs to tell you what you are looking at. On the other hand, if you just want to enjoy the views, skip the tour groups and just get the ticket. It takes a little over an hour to walk the wall, but the tours seem to take longer since they make stops along the way.
About 2 miles(3Km) walk around the walls of the Old Town. You enter at one of four, or so, entrances, for 150 Kuna. Cards are accepted. Walk anti-clockwise as seen from above. It will take 1-2 hours, depending on crowds, and occasional tourist walking the WRONG WAY round. There are several long steep flights of steps, and very little shade if it's hot. The views of the town, mountains and the wall itself make it worthwhile if you are reasonably fit and mobile. No access for wheelchairs. There are a few cafes and bars around the route for a break or toilets. If you come off the wall route, you must pay again to re-enter. Strongly recommended.
Don’t miss the city wall/walk. Went with large group of friends and toured the old city. Rode the #6 bus, straight to the entrance. So much to see, we almost skipped the walls. Luckily, we took advantage of the incredible views and historical heritage. Went at a busy time, so getting around some of the tours was a bit frustrating. However, we’re still able to walk and appreciate the walls with a large group in a little less than 2 hours. Finished the day on the dock watching the boats come back in.
A must visit in Dubrovnik. A walk along the walls shows you changing landscapes which is highly enjoyable. The best view is the one in which you have the old town, the sea and the islands on your back. It is a 75-90 minute walk. Come prepared in sneakers and with some water supply. Evening and morning time are the best times to do it.
