It only costs €3 to go up to the fortress, the good news is you will lose ponds on the way up too. It is quite a climb, steep in places, there are steps which make it easier than using the slopes which have loose stones on the top and can make you unsteady. Where sensible shoes and take some...

Entrance 3 € (april 2014). Demanding walk, To avoid when the temperatures are too high. Going to the top (some 300 meters of climbing) will tale one hour approx. Nice little church halfway. Great panorama on the old town and the bay of Kotor. Lots of visitors! You won't be on your own at all.Interesting. Don't miss it.

A walled city, how cool is that? It was a blast to walk around and is actually attractive. The history just seeps out of the place. Once inside the walls, lots of good quality shops and excellent food.

Kotor is a medieval port at the far end of the Bay of Kotor, and is a UNESCO world heritage site. Aside from the old town itself, one of the main attractions is the fortress wall built high up in the hills above the town. Protected from sea invasion by the narrow inlet to get into the Bay of Kotor,... More

A short meander through Old Town Kotor will bring you to the city walls & the fortifications towering above the town. For lovers of history & old ruins, this is a must see! Although it takes considerable effort to reach the top, the stunning views of the bay, Old Town Kotor, and the "hidden" valley, make it well worth the... More

Very much like Dubrovnik, but not quite on the same scale, these walls are beautifully maintained, old and an interesting walk. Some great views of the surrounding mountains and a real community of cats as you walk around them! I was really impressed!

...and I would walk 500 more. At which point you'd only be about 100 or so away from the top, and completely worth every one. Bring a water bottle or two, snacks if you want them and wear sturdy shoes, but other than those disclaimers take whatever time you need, but for people in average shape the way up should... More

BUT...what a spectacular feeling after you've climbed the 1080 odd steps up this ridiculous, zig zagged mountain. Of Course, the views are amazing. Kotor is a beautiful little town, but you see it from a different perspective at the top. Just stunning. As we went in the off season, we didn't have to pay anything. Be careful when you're walking... More

Not a Dubrovnik, but a must do, even if for no more than the comparison of the two. A bit rugged at times, and a lot of restoration still required, but a historic little place, doing it's best - not a big climb and frequent chances to get down. Nice views.
