Well, my daughter counted 1460 steps. Not sure if that is an accurate representation, but it was definitely a challenge for my wife, my two teens, and myself to get to the top of the fortress. My iPhone said we ascended up nearly 1000 feet from Old Town Kotor, but in the 95 degree heat and 50 per cent humidity,... More

Kotor is beautiful and expansive around the bay. However the ancient heart within the medieval walls is what makes this place so great to visit. The entire perimeter is like something out of Lord of the Rings. While the wall does extend to San Giovanni, just the part around the town is equally impressive with essentially a moat around it,...

Such a hike but the views are worth the pain. It costs a couple of euros and a bottle of water is a must. Also, make sure you wear shoes with some good grip because it's quite slippery.

When will it end? "Thirteen hundred steps," I read somewhere on TA (or elsewhere)...lies! This thing seemed like a Bataan Death March, only vertical! I had my 2 y/o daughter strapped to my back the whole time, and I even carried our 5 y/o son for a little bit, too. Then he and his Mom quit and it was just... More

I have been living in Kotor for few years. Nice small city and worth of seeing City Walls. It is possible to climb above the Old Town and City Walls and experience beautiful view. Overall, not something I would call "WOW" but if you are passing though this area, not bad to stop by and see it.

The city walls of Kotor stretch over 1.2km up St John’s Mountain to a height of 260m. They are part of the UNESCO listed fortifications of kotor, and conclude at the castle of St John (San Giovanni). It costs 3 euro to climb the walls, although when we visited in the low season of March 2015, there was no one... More

We had only a short time here as on a tour but the place is full of character and easy to walk around.

Mind-blowing view, one of the best activity we ve done through a huge balkan road trip (slovenia,croatia, serbia, bosnia, montenegro). However, be prepared to walk 1200 slippery rock stairs, but, omg, it s worth it. As others might have mentioned, dont forget to buy water in the old town (small grocery shop) you will save a lot of money and... More

We went to the walls in mid-June and it got quite hot at noon, so you might be better off earlier in the morning or later in the evening. There was lights installed near the pathway, but it is probably a good idea to bring a flahslight if you're going there in the evening. Don't wear your best clothes since... More

It took a while to climb all those stairs, if you decide to climb up to the city walls i suggest taking water and going during the afternoon or really early morning! We climbed somewhere around sunset and sat there enjoying the view, so we experienced both daylight and nighttime. There is a fee at to climb the walls- like... More
