This is the must do thing in kotor. Make sure you go early and take water. Wear good walking shoes. Didn't find it as strenuous as I expected but it is uneven in places and some parts have gaps in the walls so as someone whose afraid of heights it was a little scary in parts. The reward for the...

Though not for the faint of heart, the slow but sweaty walk to the top was rewarded with some great views! Took about an hour and a half to get to the top and another half hour to get back down.

Even if it's a little bit trickier to get on top of the walls (the stairs are not well-kept), believe me when I say that the effort will pay off. The view from there is absolutely magnificent. There is also an old little church (free entrance) that you can visit. Be sure you get there when there is no fog,... More

We took a day trip to Montenegro from Dubrovnik, and only had a couple of hours in Kotor, but decided we wanted to see the views from the top. It cost 3 Euros to climb the walls to the fortress. There are steps and a stone track, both have parts missing here and there, good shoes would be recommended, but... More

Great way to get an idea of the size of the town and the magnitude of the fortified walls. Easy walk.

If you do only one thing in Kotor, make sure it is this! The views from the City Walls walk are breathtaking - over the old town and its monuments to the bay and the mountains beyond. Our most beautiful trip photos were taken on this walk. The walls include crumbling forts and churches along the way. The walk looks... More

Wear good shoes and take a drink with you, not for the faint hearted and you should avoid the climb up in the daytime sun, whilst the uphill walk is arduous it is well worth the walk for the stunning views at the top, take acre when returning as it can get quite slippery, once completed take a well deserved...

An early start (7am) avoided the intense July heat and crowds. The track itself was crumbling a bit and you had to be careful - sensible walking shoes were a must! However, at the top, the view up the Bay of Kotor was spectacular. Well worth the effort.

There are two entrances to start the walk up: the first is located straight through the old town, the second can be reached by walking on top of the wall on the town side. Both access charge 3€. Early is ideal if the weather is going to be warm; you will also be in the shade in the morning. A... More

The entrance is located in the town where people gather together for beers and fries. It was not as steep as I thought. On your way up to the top, it gives incompatible view!
