This is your first view of the old town and it doesn't disappoint. Very busy especially when the cruise ship buses arrive. There is a fantastic ice cream shop on the right just before you go in. Delicious!

If you don't like crowds don't spent too much time here! It's almost always crowded!

It's the main entrance to the old town and surprisingly, very few street vendors selling handmade goods.

The airport bus drops you off here but doesn't pick up which was not very convenient since we had to take a cab to the main bus terminal at the harbor.

Impressive western gate into the Old Town of Dubrovnik. A stone 3-arched bridge built in 1471 leads to the Gate.

We got to the wall right as it opened, so we were up on the wall at 8:00. At this time, the heat was not too bad and the crowds of tourist that would be up there in a few hours were just waking up.
Interesting and insightful history and we would suggest the audio tour that is available for purchase on the steps leading to the wall.
Keep your eyes open for two coffee shops located on the outer side (ocean side) of the wall and try to navigate there after you're done the walk. Worth the effort and the view is amazing as you dangle your tired feet in the cool water after the walk. Should you have brought your swim suit along, go ahead, jump in and cool down.
A definite must, but remember to go early early early. We finished the walk around 10:30 (after a must deserved beverage and feet cooling off break of course, and the hoards of people walking single file along the wall made us cringe.

Interesting area but really part of the old walls which are overall very impressive and not to be missed.
