There are two entrances to start the walk up: the first is located straight through the old town, the second can be reached by walking on top of the wall on the town side. Both access charge 3€. Early is ideal if the weather is going to be warm; you will also be in the shade in the morning. A... More

The entrance is located in the town where people gather together for beers and fries. It was not as steep as I thought. On your way up to the top, it gives incompatible view!

They are easy to find and not to hard to get up (no good for a Pram or Wheelchair though) the view from the top is lovely and there is a nice restaurant if you are keen.

A trip up the walls is well worth the effort it takes as the ever changing vista as you move up the hill is great. Try and do it in the early hours of the morning as the heat during the day is too much and you will be soaked in sweat by the time you return to Kotor town.

If you are on a whirlwind tour of Kotor, such as the ones of offer from Dubrovnik, you wont have much time to appreciate the City Walls. You can see them stretching high up the mountain behind the old town to St John Fortress at the top. The walls are 4.5km long and look extra impressive when floodlit at night.... More

We have walked up 800 steps before, so thought we could do the 1,000 up to the fort. We paid the 3 euros and I asked how many steps there were - he said 1,300. Well that was a surprise - then he gave us a small booklet which said 1,352 steps!! Well we set about it with vigour on... More

Only 3 euros per person to climb the walls (although I think you can climb for free after 8pm - if you're brave enough to do so in the dark). The walk isn't what I would describe as easy-going but there are really lovely views. We didn't walk the full length of the walls - we went up in the... More

Imagine walls that climb up the side of a mountain, across the top and then down again. From a distance it looks more like the extreme pics you see of the great wall of China. Not an easy climb but also not that hard and well worth it for the views of the town and the surrounding bay

Beautiful walk and amazing view from the top! A must if you are visiting Kotor :-) Walk in the late afternoon/early evening to get the best view and remember water!

We climbed the steps to the top of the city walls and the views were breath taking! Go early morning if you go in the summer (we started at 9am and was quiet but still very hot) or in the evening.
