I read about this online before I came here, as I was on a cruise I only came here for a day so I wanted to fit as much in as possible! I highly recommend the city wall walk, it is tiring but the views are worth it, make sure you wear comfy footwear. It cost around 5 minutes to... More

Definitely worth hawking up these stairs to check the incredible view. Get a bottle of water (on the day we went, an enterprising guy was about a third the way up, but don't bet on it!). There's a cute little chapel to stop at on the way.

The whole old city is just fantastic. I really enjoyed walking thru the old town during the day and at night with the lighting on the old buildings

My fiancé and I walked the walls and proceeded through the wall and onto the mountain behind the city. It's a good physical walk and one that I recomm you prepare yourself for, water etc. The ruins are interesting and it feels like you're actually exploring the place which is nice, not touristy at all. You need good footwear. Great... More

I highly recommend the city wall walk. Its tiring, and you need to watch your footing but it is so worth it! The stairs are slippery in some spots and you have to let people pass when it gets busy. Make sure you bring water on a warm day. I believe it cost about 5 euros to go up. The... More

A lovely day can be spent walking the walls and the city of kotor. Fantastic place to visit and spend a few days. It gets rather hot, so make sure you take lots of sun cream and stop for ample coffee stops!

It's hot, your thirsty and hungry. Sit down under an umbrella, order your wine and something to eat and enjoy this ancient place and think of the people who lived their lives enclosed in this fort like village for most of their lives.

Never one to shy away from a challenge, I knew I wanted to reach the top. The entrance was not easy to find, just a small sign indicating the fort. Only 3 euros and I was on my way. The trick is not to look up. Just take one step at a time, and a rest to admire the view... More

We were in Kotor only one day for a shore excursion but had planned to do the hike up the walls to the castle. We entered thru the main gate and really enjoyed the walk and the views as we ascended. When you get to the top make sure to look over the other side at the old ruins below... More
