Reviewed October 10, 2012

Great place to enter the old city and sit around the fountain and people watch. Amazing contrast of people from all over the world. Lots of history too.

“Pile Gate”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Gets really busy when the cruise ships are in port so its best to go early. We went for 10am and it is less crowded.

“Pile Gate”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Pile Gate is one of the entrances to the Old Town. I will say the most popular one. There, on your left, you have the bus stops, a tourist office, few shops and on your right exchange office few shops and taxi.

“beautiful sights”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The pile gate is where most tour buses drop off their passengers and is the first look into Dubrovnik. Greeted by costumed figures, you cross over a wooden bridge into the main thouroughfare of the city. Wake up early and take a photo before the tourists arrive!

“City entrance”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

A very crowded part of Dubrovnik as it is the entrance to the city. It is also close to the main bus ticket office.
