We have spent all week looking over at the fortress above Kotor, and agreed we had to walk the wall before we go home. This morning we set off. The entrance fee is 3euro. It is mainly steps all the way up ,which are quite well maintained. The views of the bay as you approach the church are good, but... More

Certainly not on the scale of those in Dubrovnik, but a pleasant way to spend some time wandering. A reasonable selection of restaurants but none offering a sea view.

The wall, the steps and the fort is a must visit when in Kotor. We went all in and walked up the old path behind the fort and all the way towards Kstarc. Beautiful and breathtaking views! It's tàkes a couple of hours to the top along good and compfy paths. On your way down stop by the little house/bar... More

We climb two times the city walls in late june. First one we started a few minutes after 7 am. We make to the top, pausing to take pictures and cath our breath, We arrived almost one hour later. The entire walk was in the shadows, what helped a lot. When we reach the top, the sum (sunrise was around... More

The old city walls of Kotor are truly amazing. They not only run round the town but rise 260m up the precipitous hill behind the town. The climb is well worth the effort - the views over the town and bay are wonderful. Go as early as possible before it gets too warm. Officially the path up opens at 8... More

For just 3 Euro, you can climb the ever-reaching steps of Kotor's city walls to the fortress above. Once you arrive at the top, you will have a great view of Kotor Bay and the mountains around it. I truly think that this is one of the best views you will be able to see in all of the Balkans.... More

If you go up the main trail from the middle of the walled city ,expect to pay 3 euros between 8am and 8 pm.If you go before 8am it is free and after 8pm the castle area is lit up. If you want to avoid the 3 euros per person,go outside the city walls to the left( cross the bridge... More

The climb of 1350 steps will test you durability. As previous reviews have advised, take some water as it can be very trying. It will take at least 90 minutes just to go up and down without taking in the stunning views of Kotor and the bay. The 3 euro cost is well worth it.

The climb up to the fort at the top of the hill took surprisingly less time than I had been led to believe. Yes, it is 1300-odd steps, and the walls look near-vertical when standing at bay-level, but the path was so gradual, it didn't really feel like I was gaining in elevation as fast as I actually was.

As Carol and I were leaving Kotor we happened on a small boy sitting quietly in a niche in the wall. On his knees was a small tray of painted shells. We had gone past a couple of yards when I said to Carol that I would like to give him something. Carol said that I should buy one of... More
