Exhausting, but worth it
Jun 2021
It's a long way up, so prepare yourself by packing light, wearing adequate shoes, applying sunscreen and bringing a lot of water. It took us about 40 minutes to get to the top, but we were stopping a bit to rest on the way. You have to be in shape for this. Avoid climbing during the hottest part of the day. The views from the top are incredible, and if you can handle the effort, there are definitely worth it.

Epic Wall, Awesome Ruins, Epic View
Oct 2020
If you are physically capable of handling the 1000+ steps, The ancient city walls of Kotor offer an incredibly well-preserved series of structures including the cobblestone ramp to the top, buildings in various states of preservation and decay, the wall itself and, as you get progressively higher some spectacular views of the bay and surrounding mountains.

Best to avoid the heat of the midday but if you do go late and are going to run into sunset, a headlamp is a smart idea. The footing on the steps is pretty reliable, but you will want footwear that you can trust. Fluids and a snack or also a smart idea.

Interesting History

I came to Kotor as part of a tour group from Dubrovnik, Croatia. The tour guide had plenty of knowledge about the city and the walls. His detailed description made it worth the trip.

A MUST DO!!!
Sep 2020 • Couples
We loved the views from the church perched high up on the walls. The famous picture of the church looking over the bay of Kotor and the old town is approximately a 25-30 minute hike, medium level. Better bring some good shoes as it is mostly on uneven steps, and kinda steep in some areas. But once you get up there, just WOW!!!!

Cool construction, excellent city. The walls are great to see both from the ground, driving in, and from the climb up the ladder.

Great Views of Kotor from City Walls
Mar 2020
No matter how little time you have available in Kotor, it is worth walking the steps up at least mid-way the hill to the church to enjoy the views of the town. It only takes 15 minutes to get up there and 10 minutes back. You just need to be a bit careful because some parts of the stairs are not in the greatest of conditions but many elderly people were still able to do it at their own pace. A must see!

UNESCO World Heritage

The whole historical fortification system of Kotor was inscribed in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1979.
A walk (rather a climb) to the Castle Of San Giovanni is definitely a must (if you have the time for it) !

If you love medieval wall, as I do, you will love the city walls of Kotor. The Gates are in the old town and the fortified wall meander up from the sea to the mountains.

Beautiful place but not adapted for tourists
Dec 2019 • Couples
The nature is beautiful and the view from the top is great.
It would be nice if there was a cafe and toilet room. And trash cans!
Also recommend cable car.
