“Just do it ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Took us about 2 hours (50+ years old, average condition). Spectacular views, some height issues for me, and some narrow walk areas make it scary in a fun way. It is NOT just a walk around the walls - there are a lot of steps too. Get tixs in a small office just the right of the Pile Gate. I don't think a tour is needed and one might actually reduce the feel of the walk. Worth the $15 US. EARLY EVENING BEST. Avoid. The cruise ship crowds, and heat in summer.

“Do it at night, or in the depths of winter.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

The wall walk is great BUT! In the July sun I wouldn't recommend it. We decided after visiting the city a couple of days earlier that this should be enjoyed in the evening. This was a saviour as I am sure most reviews will recommend.

The gates shut at 7:30pm and we arrived around 6pm with a thunder and lightening show up on the hillside which gave the walk a great atmosphere. It was made even more special that it stayed up on the hillside and not down to the walls.

Great views, great lighting and seeing the city lit up with the music festival starting in the background it really made for a special walk.

“City Walls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

The price was 90 Kunars (about £11) but well worth it. I walked it at 3pm and it was not at all crowded. You can escape the route half way around but the top section has the best views (and the most steps). If you get off three quarters of the way around you are very close to the cable car and some combine the two activities.

Brilliant! gorgeous views! Although tiring the hour walk around the walks was completely worth it! Good value for money too

“the highlight of Dubrovnik”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

A must for any trip to Dubrovnik. Best to walk the walls late in the afternoon, when the cruise boat crowds have left, an hour before closing.
