“Walk the wall”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

It was fun and we enjoyed it. However, if you are going to do it I suggest doing it on a day when you want to do other things like bus rides. ANd get the Dubrovnik day card. I thought it was a lot of $ to walk around the wall. It would of been a better value if we paired it with exploring the rest of the city by bus...

“Large number of steps but well worth doing.”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Super views and stunning walk - ensure you keep hold of your ticket as it will need scanning at certain points on the walk and if you lose it you are not able to carry on!!

“Spectacular Views”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

After reading many of the reviews, we almost skipped the walk around the walls because of stories about the heat, the steps and the heights. That would have been a terrible mistake - my wife and I are both in our 60s and have a fairly strong fear of heights. Despite those limitations, we completed the walk around the walls in just over an hour and took dozens of photos along the way. The views were the highlight of our visit.

Go early in the morning to avoid the heat and crowds and simply take the many steps slowly. The gate you enter doesn't really matter early in the morning - we encountered only a few people around 9AM in mid-May and the number of steps seems equivalent since the walls wind all the way around the city. After making the initial climb to the top of the walls, there is a second smaller climb early in the front and back sections. Though the walkways are narrow, there are wider sections every 100' or so to stop and take photos. There are bathrooms as well as small cafes at several spots along the way, mostly on the water side. In general, the wall on one side of the walkway is 3 feet high and the other 4-5 feet high. We simply stayed close to the taller wall and found the heights bothersome only on 2 small interim climbs. By concentrating on the steps, we made it through them without any real concern. The views are amazing and the walk is the most memorable part of our visit to the gorgeous city.

Reviewed May 23, 2013

great walk along the top of the wall. Excellent views of the city and surrounds. We did it on a rainy day so i am sure on a lovely sunny day it would be even better.

“Walk the Wall!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

The ancient city walls of Dubrovnik were amazing. You can walk all the way around, viewing the old town from above, see new Dubrovnik as well as amazing views of the Adriatic. The walk takes between 1-2 hours depending on how many stops along the way you make to take photos or just take in the sights below.
An amazing way to see old town and one not to miss. It was 30 Kunas per person and anyone, young or old can make it around.
