You can't miss walking around when you are in Motovun; very easy walk, max 10-15 mins, and you can enjoy the spectacular panorama far to the surrounding area, and close to the red roofs of the village; perfect place for shooting photos. You don't have to pay for it.

The ancient city wall is easy to find from the center of the main square. A morning, afternoon and/or an evening walk on the top of the wall offers a fantastic view of the surrounding country-side and its wineries, Do not forget your camera.

Motovun is pretty small. We enjoyed the walk around the hilltop city on the city walls, which took about 15 minutes at a leisurely pace. It was quiet, and beautiful.

This is one of the best walls we have encountered in all of Europe. Just getting up to the top of the hill is a trip in itself. The wall has restaurants, stores, bars, and a hotel within it's boundaries.

Steeped in history with a very interesting political past.there are breathtaking views from the ancient wall surrounding the town. Buy the guide book about Motuvun (available from local shops and available in many languages) which is written by a local man and very well researched with fascinating facts.

Just walking over the walls is a pleasure. Nice homes on one side, great valley views on the other. One get a sense of what was it living in this walled city hundreds of years ago.

Fantastic walkway along the city walls with stunning views of the valleys and canal, and the truffle forests. What Motovun is all about. Don't miss it!

As in my review a walled city on a high hill that was wonderful to visit. Great views . The walled city was smaller than most and I think that added to its charm. Surrounding countryside very green and full of grape vineyards. It is a long climb to the top.

This is such a gorgeous view. We strolled past the restaurant patio eating area resting along the wall. The breeze and the view made for a nice place to stop.

It´s a beautiful old city on a hill where you can walk and relax. Do not forget to visit the church and the market. We can spent a day to visit this beautiful day.
