    Great views of the city
    At a height of 400 meters above sea level, this mountain provides some amazing views of the city. The best time to visit is around sunset. You can view the sunset from the top of the French fort there. It's not a well known spot and you will have great views. You can take the cable car up and down again. It can get pretty crowded and costs 27 EUR for a round trip ticket. Alternatively, you can hike up and enjoy the view on the way up. There are mainly two routes, the switch back route and the longer more gradual way up. Best to use google maps or some other app to navigate. It's pretty easy to do that way. I did that, then took the cable car down for 15 EUR one way. Of course, you could also take a taxi, uber or even e-tuktuk. Either way, you shouldn't miss it.

    Mount Srd ( pronounced “Surge”) , Homeland War museum and Cable car
    A beautiful morning hike with spectacular views. Walking from just above the old town took us about an hour about 930am. Wear decent shoes ( trainers or walking sandals) the trail is very rocky but easy to follow. It’s sobering to think it’s the same trail all supplies had to go up to the Napoleonic fort during the war in the 1990s. Don’t forget bottled water and sunscreen. There’s the panorama restaurant and the top but it’s busy and expensive so don’t count on a table. The Homeland War Museum at the summit is well worth a visit. It cost €8 for 1 adult and 1 student and is thoughtful exhibition of the horrendous bombardment of Dubrovnik in 1991. It has artefacts , lots of photos and ITN footage. We took the brief cable car ride down. €16 each. A lovely way to spend a morning

    Walk if you can instead of the expensive cable car
    This is a tough climb and we are both reasonably fit. Take good shoes and plenty of water! It’s totally worth it for the views and you’ll be almost the only person there unlike at the top which is packed with tour guides and cable car riders So glad we chose to walk!

    Great views and an enjoyable hike
    We visited Mount Srd around sunset and had a wonderful time. We chose to save money and stretch our legs a little, so walked up and down the trail instead of taking the cable car. We had an Uber drop us at the trailhead (and another pick us up afterward) since we were staying a little further out, in Srebreno. The hike is about 1.5 miles each way, on a nice trail with lots of switchbacks to avoid being too steep. It took some effort and about 40 minutes, but we enjoyed the time outdoors as well as the steadily improving views as we gained altitude. At the top, we went immediately left and found some spots in the rocks where we could look down on Dubrovnik and the nearby islands and enjoy the sunset. We weren't especially interested in any other attractions at the top of the mountain, so as the sun started getting lower we headed back down the trail. The return trip was a little quicker, and we made it back to the trailhead before it got dark.

    Get the 17 bus to the top and walk down.
    Ok, so the cable car is one way up, but we did the alternative. Buy a 24 hour bus pass and catch the 17 bus outside Pile Gate. This takes you to almost the top of the mountain. But just off the bus stop is a footpath that takes you down the hill with fabulous views of the old town. It is quite a walk back to the Old Town, but not too difficult as mainly downhill. Well worth doing.

    Worth the walk
    From the old town to the top of the mount it took us 1hr 18 minutes. The hike is totally worth it for the views you get. Wear sensible shoes, converse pumps did feel like I was walking in bare feet at times on the journey down!!!

    Spectacular views
    Our stop in Dubrovnik was truly special, and the views spectacular, and there's no better view from above in Dubrovnik than Mount Srd. Accessible by hike (which I would not recommend as the path is poorly maintained and very uncomfortable underfoot) or by cable car, Mount Srd offers breathtaking views of the Old City, the crystal clear Adriatic Sea, and the numerous islands. After taking in the view we felt the desire for a bit of adventure and decided to book onto a Buggy Safari tour with Dubrovnik Buggy Adventure - a 35 minute off-road tour taking you through the mountain and woodland finishing with more astounding 360° views. The tour is at a cost of €40 per person; however, if you have the time and the stamina, you're able to access the viewpoints on foot.

    Great views, interesting museum
    On the top of the hill, you definitely get the best views of the city. We were also pleasantly surprised by the small museum inside the fort. It's a few Euros per person to get in but interesting and a good way to learn about the war

    Nice little hike reachable from the Old City
    We had an enjoyable time hiking up to the top from the old city. A good excuse to get some exercise to burn off some of the lobster pasta and wine from the night before. The trailhead is a little tricky to find. There is nothing particular to see on the hike itself but the views are great, particularly at the top of the old city. On the steeper side but it’s quick.

    Enjoyable Hike
    We took a taxi to the top to visit the Homeland War Museum, and then we walked back down. It was a nice, enjoyable walk with beautiful views of the city. It's a well maintained path and if you're interested in religious attractions, the Stations of the Cross are displayed on the whole path. I wouldn't go out of my way to do this hike, but if you're looking for a great opportunity to photograph the city from above then it's a perfect place to do that.

Took the cable car up to the top where the views are absolutely amazing!
Walked back down, well worth doing! Took us an hour.
Make sure to wear good shoes if you decide to walk one way or the other!

Whether you arrive via cable car, walk on foot, or taxi/rideshare, Mount Srd will provide nearly half a day of enjoyment if you let it. The restaurant by the cable car station has great food, the station itself offers stunning overlooks of Old Town Dubrovnik, and several hiking trails branch out in various places across the peak, which is surprisingly quite flat. My electric wheelchair could handle most of the major trails, but they are made with gravel and dirt, so it’s definitely bumpy and risky. One of the trails leads to a horseback riding course or farm of some sort, although I didn’t visit it.

We walked up and down the mountain, it took one hour to go up and a bit less to go down. Don’t waste your money on the cable cars if you are moderately fit. It’s a stunning walk with stunning views. Toilets and cafe at the top as well as the fun sky bike (£30 a ticket).

We took the cable car on our last day - perfect view of the city below - and a harrowing but very informative visit to the Homeland War museum in the Napoleonic fort. After 2 days exploring the old city - the graphic descriptions of the siege were very sobering.
