Stunning views amazing history well worth. The ten pounds. Wear sturdy shoes though. There are a lot of steps on various parts of the wall and for those scared of heights there are a couple of places that can make the heart best a little quicker

Liked - beautiful scenery, fascinating history. Disliked - entered via North Wall and had twelve flights of steps down and twelve flights of steps up.

Worth the 100 Kuna fee. Took us about 3 hours to complete the walk at a very leisurly pace sitting down to have lunch in the afternoon with the sun shining right above us.

There are a lot steps to get up to the wall and a lot of steps as you walk around it but the view is spectacular! It is worth buying a Dubrovnik ticket as this includes the visit to the wall. We had a 7 day ticket.

Is most spectacular in the late afternoon/early evening. It's worth waiting until the end of the day - it's also quieter then. Either way, it's a must see here.

Really amazing and wery well preserved. We walked on them, and the view is great from above! There is a fee to walk on the wall, and is around 15 eur per person.

Great views inside and outside the old town walls. Took around two hours to walk around. A little expensive for just a walk.

If you are fun of the TV show Game of thrones like we are, then you will be even more hyper and enthusiastic once you climb up to the walls of Dubrovnik. :) This ancient place is completely amazing and full of romantic and hidden stories...MUST to visit while in Croatia!!!

An excellent walk encompassing some of the best views of one of the best looking cities on earth, easy to do, good steps where needed and safety rails so not too much for those less comfortable wit heights (severe height problems maybe walk round the inside before deciding and some of the sea walls could give a jolt if you...
