Best way to see the city and a great place for photos. I think if you had to choose between the cable car or city walls if you have limited time - do the walls!

You cannot miss the city walls as you are nearing Dubrovnik. They are massive and picturesque. The walls encompass the city in an irregularly shaped polygon. In front of the main wall on the mainland side is an outer wall with 10 semi-circular bastions. There are three entrances to the city ramparts: on Stradun by the Pile gate, by Fort... More

We enjoyed visiting this wonderfully vibrant city but it's especially beautiful at night. Plan on staying a few days. Many ships visit this place but if possible stay longer than one day. There is so much to see that we were happy we came for a few days and had time for museums, land and boat tours. Well worth visiting... More

Definitely worth a great view of the city. If you go to old town, walk the walls. The city is great and there are many places to explore but if you walk the walls it gives an totally different perspective and you can see outside of the city as well. Enjoy!

Do not miss this! You can pick up the wall walk just inside the main "tourist gate". You can make it a long or short walk depending on your interest. There are even a few places to stop and get a quick drink or bite as you walk along. If you have stroller age kids know that they don't let... More

The climb and walk was challenging in the rain, but the views were just indescribable with words! Simply awesome and majestic views all round.

100 kuna to walk the Dubrovnik wall....well worth the money. The views you get over the Old Town and the sea out to the Island of Lokrum and beyond are to die for. If you are very unfit this may not be the best way to see Dubrovnik as there are many steep stairs both up and down. The best... More

Really a must if you have the time, we walked the walls very slowly as we had plenty of time to admire the splendid views. this took around two hours, as we had plenty of time. Really a must and remember your camera, as we must have taken around 50-60 photos
