When you visit this walled city, there are a few gates throughout the city. The Pile Gate is one of your choices to use. It has a beautiful view of the surrounding area for photographs.

With our brief Dubrovnik walking tour we were told of the various entrances to the Old City. We were able to use this over the next few days and enjoy all parts of the amazing part of town.

You have to go through this to enter the main part of the city - it's beautiful and they do a nice job making an entry/exit point when the cruise ships come in.

Very ancient accessed via the old town. Can access the "wall" from here. Historical stonework. Well preserved. Leads to bus station and cable car.

An impressive gate to the main old city. Gets very crowded. There are musicians and artists plying their trade. It is a place you go to to get the the strada as amuch as anything

Historic gate that is the main entrance to the old town and a very popular hub. Subsequently it can get extremely busy, so it's best to visit early if possible. Restaurants, tourist information and bus stop just outside.

Don't miss this awesome entrance into Old Town! A really beautiful and impressive entrance. There is a taxi area right outside, so it's a good place to enter and leave Old Town.

Pile Gate doesn't impress, its just a landmark. Also, there's a smell of gutter as soon as one enters! Its such a turn off.

This area was very busy with people selling their wares which is a slight annoyance. Very interesting and one for Game of Thrones fans

Hi, I just checked my photo uploads, the majority are taken from ground level at the harbour side. The best views, in my opinion are from the top of the adjacent hill - access by cable car, or (as we did), a taxi tour.
