One of the highlights of our visit was to walk around the old city walls. Lots of steps to climb, which put some people off, but not this septuagenarian! The views are breathtaking in every direction. Absolutely not to be missed!

The first thing you see when you arrive in Dubrovnik ... City walls from the 15th century, so nice that it will leave you breathless... Visit it in autumn.

When you walk into Old Town from the Pile Gate, you will see the entrance to the City Walls on your left. The ticket office is actually on the right side when you walk in through the gate, it's one of the first doors on your right.

You will see gorgeous views of the orange roofs of Old Town and of the coast along the walk. Check the cruise ship schedule to find a time when there will be less cruise ships in town because it can get really crowded. Or just wait and go later in the afternoon (after 3ish) to avoid the crowds. It feels about 10 degrees hotter on the walls so bring food, snacks, good walking shoes. Maybe a hat because there really is no shade. And don't forget your camera! Don't lose your ticket because they check it a few times along the way. It took us about 2 hours to do the whole walk, but we stopped a lot along the way for pics.

Also, make sure to go to Fort Lovrijenac for some more great views of Old Town (admission is included with your City Walls ticket).

Best way to see the city from above and together with its surroundings. Walls are in great shape and they are beautiful.

If you go Dubrovnik you need to visit the city walls. You walk across the top of all of the walls, excellent views of the sea and Dubrovnik. 70kunas a person but worth the money!
