These are wonderful walls to see and surround Old Town Dubrovnik. They are a challenge to climb but at the top you can see a beautiful view of the harbor .

A lo of people head for the cable car in Dubrovnik to enjoy the view - but if you want to stay closer to the city: forget the cable car and have a walk around the city walls. You pay a small fee, make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes (this is not ideal if you have difficulies walking, there... More

Only had an hour during my tour and it would've been nicer to be able to take a slow stroll (felt like a brisk walk around the walls). Many great vantage spots for nice photos and marvelous sea views. The ticket price is 100 kuna/14 euros. Money can be changed at the gift shop and remember to keep your ticket... More

It's pristine, well maintained and views at every turn! Lots of stairs and some steeper clumps so not good for strollers or elderly. After your climb: on the sea side, find the gem of a scruffy patio selling beer and soda playing Frank Sinatra. You can sit and rest your legs watching waves pound at the walls.

Fabulous views but not for those of you with any form of disability as loads of steps involved. My husband only made it half way round as he got breathless. Be warned !!

Very impressive but very busy when cruise ships in port. Walking round walls gives great views but not for the those with walking difficulty.

The walls are fantastic and I highly recommend if you are up to it as it can quite tiring for old folks. I did it at 3pm which was terribly hot so I will recommend a better timing maybe early morning when the sun is not as glaring and you can get nice pictures or late pm or evening when... More
