“Great views. Great experience. But too crowded.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We visited the city walls on our first day in Dubrovnik. You can get tickets just through the main gate of the old town for 10EUR. There are many steps to climb. Once you are at the top, you have a great view of the inside and the outside of the old town so be sure to bring a camera.

When we were there, there were a lot of other people also climbing the walls. Passages were narrow and we had to wait to pass at several points. We were told this is common in July and August.

The climb up the walls was worth every step and worth the 10 EUR. The views are incredible. Would recommend.

“Brilliant, well worth the money & walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

If you have to choose between the cable car & the city walls (both are around 90KN) - choose the city walls! Far more to see & much more worth the money. However, if you're not much of a walker/climber (yes, there are some stairs) then maybe consider the cable car as a better option). Fabulous views of Dubrovnik and the Old City, loved it!

“Incredibly beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

One of the best travel memories I have! If it's summer you can get a bit tired cause of the heat, but the views are absolutely amazing!

“Out of season visit to the Ancient City Walls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

This is a must do activity and the views from almost every angle are spectacular. We were lucky enough to be there at the end of January and it was not crowded and a very enjoyable walk it was too. Not sure how it would be when the ships are in the port.This is not really a strenuous walk but if you have problems with walking it might be better to do part of the walk. Spotlessly clean with extremely clean toilets on the way around it is wonderful to visit this historical site.
