We visited Kotor as part of the Montenegro day trip from Dubrovnik and spent approx 2 hours in Kotor. With only 2 hours, we went immediately to the city wall (ticket needed) and hiked to the fort at the top (along steps) which is barely enough time for a return trip while some time were spent on taking photos.

The city of Kotor is already stunning with the views but its worth to climb the steep walls. It will take you probably 30/45 minutes to the fortress. The views of Kotor bay are beautiful. Note that dure working hours they charge 3 euros entrance. Do like locals and go early, as sunrise is the best time to take pictures.

As for town walls they serve a purpose and give some old town felling to Kotor. A few places where you can walk the walls but limited to places for eateries.

It is lovely walking around the city walls but there are a lot of hazards such as wires tied across the path at knee height, loose stones, and even gates which make it look like you're entering on to private property. Some of the safety rails are missing too, so watch your step. You can't walk all the way around... More

This started badly for me as I slipped on my new summer dress, flimsy flip flops and was carrying 2 litres of tonic water in my bag for vital G&T supplies that night. I was none too impressed when my boyfriend decided that this was the exact time we should climb the walls. But I'm young and healthy and loved... More

These solid fortifications surround Kotor old town and help prevent getting lost for too long in the labyrinthine small streets with their many boutique shops and cafes. The walls themselves are a very popular walk but on the day I went it was far too hot to do the walk in the middle of the afternoon. It takes around 90... More

I have a secret to share. It is true that you can visit Kotor city walls for free on an easier route and still get all the views. For starters, it would be good to remember that whichever route you take, the walk will be a steep climb with some steep steps and some loose stones underfoot. The route I... More
