The walls of Kotor rise to improbable heights up the seemingly sheer cliffs behind the mediaeval city on Kotor Bay. There are several hundred deep and uneven steps to the top. It may take one or several hours to climb the steps depending on your fitness, age and how often you stop for the breath-taking views over the town and... More

We enjoyed this hike, we went all the way despite the heat and the view was well worth it. Be sure to take water and wear comfortable shoes! Not overly strenuous if you're in decent shape (we're 63).

A must do when in Kotor. The view was fantastic at the top as well as along the way. It only took us about 30 minutest to go to the top (a bit difficult at that pace :)).

We had atrocious weather and limited ourselves to mainly the lower walls. But mind you we wandered into a few backyards so wasn't following the normal route ? Parts of the walls are very dilapidated & some sections very dodgy plus a lot of rubbish & graffiti , very sad to see ! But the Gates & Moats & Little... More

For anyone up for some gradual uphill hike with a stunning view along the way. Two entrance to the wall from the inside of the old town. There are a few 'check points' with the towers, especially at the very top,which feels exactly like you are in those battle scenes from Lord of the Ring!! A stunning fortress build on... More

. . . . . . say it all. We only walked the lower walls at street level round the town. There are various access points and not too many steps to climb. It gave us fascinating views not only of the port and the bay, but over the houses within. Most enjoyable. If you have got your map from... More

There was a 'kind of fee' a few bucks at the bottom, not sure if was legit or not......hard to tell. However, the actual walk up (mostly stairs, some broken slope, etc.) is very walkable -however it is long -took us 40 minutes and remember you have to come back down. All that said, would highly recommend, what a view... More

The first thing you see coming from the bus station are the city walls. Very impressive, easy to follow and walk around. Small market and an information desk.

Great views of the bay of Kotor and the city of Dobrota and Skaljari from the walls. A must to visit it!

Like The Great Wall of China, Hadrian's Wall, or any other wall you can think of, you have to climb to the top of the wall around Kotor if you are here!
