There is a bit of a climb up a number of steps to this fort but it is worth it as you will be at the highest point of the walls. If you start at Ploce Gate, you encounter this part quite early on (rather than at the end if you start at Pile Gate) and may therefore have a bit more energy to get you up to the top! The lovely uninterrupted views in every direction really make the effort worthwhile.

Some of the best photos I took along the Old City walls were taken through the slots in the Minceta Tower.I thought it was well worth the climb.

A lot less people visit this fortress than the city itself, which makes it an ideal place for a great views of the city and surrounding area. Lots of steps to get to the top of the fortress but the views are worth it. It's just a short walk from the city walls to the fortress.

This tower is the highest point in the city. From it's top one can see the entire city below and the sea all around. On a sunny day it is probably one of the most picturesque vistas in Europe, competing head to head with St. Paul's in London and the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Lots of steps to get up there, but well worth it, especially on a sunny day!

Part of the walk along the old town walls and definitely worth climbing the main steps then narrow stairway to experience the view.
