Surprised at all the comments on how hard the walk is as it isnt. We are nearly 70 and dont do hill walking but managed this easily. Of course you stop quite often to admire the views and coming down is much quicker. We went early morning as it was 36 degrees that day but really enjoyed it and the... More

You must do this in Kotor, and you must do it early or late. The enormous cruise ships arrive almost every day and by 9am the walk is absolutely crowded. And wear comfortable shoes, there are a lot of steps and stairs. My husband's phone app said he'd climbed 82 floors. Views are magnificent all the way up.

Lots of steep uneven steps so be sure you're in good shape or steady on your feet. Terrific views and photo opportunities. Going down is more difficult because of the footing -- embedded stones.

We went around 8 o'clock since other reviews said it could get hot in Kotor. The wall was very quiet then the entry fee is 3 euro per person. It is steep but there are stone steps which facilitated the climb. I was going to try to get up to the church but gave up at the first vista point.... More

Do yourself a favor and go early in the morning or after 7pm as the sun is sinking below the mountain. Otherwise you'll be blasted with heat. The climb was really fun for my husband and I. We're in our mid 30's and in pretty good shape so it was fine. We left our 6 year old son with my... More

3 euros to do this and worth every cent. We set off at 9.00am as it was a hot day but we found it quite and easy walk. Tended to walk by side of steps instead of using the steps as easier climb - only used them when necessary. Views were spectacular and enjoyed every minute of it. Don't be... More

Ascending 260 vertical metres over a 1.2km trail climb might seem a bit much but walking at your own speed and taking photo stops and or water breaks as often as required will reward you with great views of the old city, the walls and fortress's themselves and Kotor Bay. The trail is a combination of steps and loose gravel... More

If you know your history then you'll understand why they enclose the Old Stari Grad! You can walk along certain part of the walls and get a view of the bay, the higher the better of course. They also often do art pieces at random points so keep a look out for them!

Entrance is €3 per person. Children were free (5 and 8). Our 5 year made it 2/3 to the top and I went up all the way with our 8 year old son. If here in the summer, I recommend going before 10 o clock at latest in sunny days or it will be a very hit trip. And you... More

The City Walls are walls that run up and above the old City of Kotor. They are wall-shaped and wall-like and continue for a lot longer than one might want when it's late-thirty degrees. Upside: GREAT view of the old city and the bay. Downside: the higher you go, the less the difference in greatness of the view. Tip: definitely... More
