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.

It’s quite a climb so make sure you are in good shape and take your time. I was told there were more than 1400 steps. It took about 20 minutes to reach the church “Our Lady of Health”. That’s relative easy. It then took at least another 25 minutes to reach the top. When I reached the top, I had... More

Although the walk to the top of the walls is not easy (would not recommend in extremely wet conditions for example) it is well worth completing to take in the views at the top. This is not to say the climb is impossible as young children and elderly adults also made it to the top just remember to take plenty... More

There are hundreds of steps and it is tiring in the heat but it is absolutely worth it for the incredible views at the top. It costs €3 and we spent about 2 hours walking up and back, taking photos and sitting around for a while. It really is beautiful and well worth it though.

This attraction involves climbing hundreds of steps on very steep inclines up a mountain along the walls of a fortress that is at the top of a mountain. The round trip climb and return to the old city is 4.5 km which for took me a little over 2.5 hours. This included rest times, pic taking, and just enjoying the... More

Great views all the way up and at the top. Took us less than 2 hours up and down and we were taking it pretty slow and taking time for lots of photos! The steps are ok in most places I wouldn't consider it a dangerous climb and water is being sold along the path.

Coming from Wales i'm pretty use to being around mountains and this it a fairly sedate climb in normal conditions. Pair it with the excessive summer heat and the state of disrepair that the steps have fallen into it can border the dangerous in parts. Anyone thinking of going into this walk in sandals or flip flops should reconsider and... More

From the moment you start climbing the view to the Kotor bay opens up and it keeps improving until you reach the top. The climb is worth it! Although it is not really well preserved, there is a lot of garbage everywhere and smell of urin. There are no toilets at any point. The stairs are ruined and it makes... More

Be sure to take the back way up and visit the farm offering the world's best goat cheese (SERIOUSLY) and beer. And don't forget your good walking shoes... Sandals are going to kill your feel. Enjoy the view!
