About
Constructed over a 500-year period mainly during the 12th and 17th centuries, the Walls of Dubrovnik are amongst the most extensive and well-preserved fortifications in Europe. Stretching over 6000 feet, the uninterrupted course offers fantastic views of the coastal city. There's little shelter from the sun, so visit during the cooler months or evenings to beat the heat and for fewer crowds. You can purchase tickets from any City Wall entrance, but a Dubrovnik Pass is convenient and offers great value. A guided tour also often includes a walking tour of the Old Town as well. – Tripadvisor

    Best way to see the City
    At first I was taken a little aback by the price, but it really is the best way to view the City. There is something new and a different perspective to see at every turn. The photo opportunities are never ending and you can stroll around at the pace you like. There are a couple of bars to enjoy the view along the route.

    Go early
    We started shortly after 9.00 on a Sunday morning. There were a few people on the walls, but plenty of space to take our time and stop and take in the views. We took plenty of photos and took our time, and we did the complete wall in just over 2 hours. We didn't stop of drinks, but there were a couple of places where people could stop for refreshments. We started at the Pile gate, but you can also start at the Ploce gate. The best thing to do is buy a Dubrovnik Pass, unless you are only going to do the walls, as it will give you free access to a number of other sites. After completing the walls, there are plenty of places on Stradum or just outside the Pile gate to get a drink.

    Epic Views
    Amazing walk on top of the wall. Started by Ploce gate and came down at St. John's. It is a "one way" walk so we did the majority of the wall this way. The views were amazing from every angle. I especially loved the views of the city roofs and the section of wall by the sea. It was a rainy day with choppy waves, but the photos came out great and it wasn't hot this time of year. It was also not crowded. It wasn't too strenuous, sections of the wall go up and down gradually. It was pretty expensive at over $30 per person but well worth it.

    The unique Dubrovnik old city walls
    A unique experience! Start early at the entrance near the Fortress of St. John. After you finished the walls and if you have the Dubrovnik Pass visit the Maritime Museum and head to the Rector's Palace, Treasury of the Cathedral, Jesuit Stairway, Great Granary, House of Marin Držić, Sephardic Synagogue, Franciscan Monastery, and finish with Fortress of St. Lawrence. You wouldn't miss anything and you won't backtrack. At the End, treat yourself to dinner and wine. Enjoy Dubrovnik!

    Interesting and Wonderful Views of the City
    These old medieval walls were the highlight of my visit to Dubrovnik. Take your time when you walk around as there are so many beautiful postcard views and take lots of photos! I also went into and climbed Minceta Tower, which also gives some incredible views of the city. Just be aware that there are parts of the wall that have a lot of steps that require a lot of climbing.

    Worth every penny!
    During the winter time (until the end of February) the price of the Walls is quite affordable - it costed 15€ per person, but I heard that from March onward will be about 35€ per person. It seems quite expensive, but - it took us almost 2 hours to walk through whole wall, we took great pictures (you won't get such good pictures from anywhere else, I promise!) and we were told that ticket lasts for 3 days. Also, the ticket included visit to the Lovrijenac tower (St. Lawrence Fortress) that is located outside of the walls (maybe 10-15 min walk from the Walls), so I can tell you, to me it was worth every penny we paid. I would also recommend to visit during the winter, when is not so overcrowded with tourists, as you can take really nice photos and take your time to walk through whole walls without felling any pressure. Also, somewhere in the half of the Walls there is toilet (someone in the earlier reviews said there weren't any), but caffes were closed in this period.

    Beautiful Views
    This is certainly one of the most scenic walks in Europe! It took us nearly 2hrs to walk to the entire length of the walls. The views are stunning and seem to get better and better as you walk around. There are plenty of stopping places to sit and admire the views. It cost 300HRK to enter the walls. But with our Dubrovnik pass it was actually free as the card costs 300HRK and gets you access to loads of different places. There are many bars along the walls if you wanted a to sit and have a drink, however they are highly priced so I recommend just taking some snacks and drink with you. make sure you visit the Tvrđava Minčeta tower along the walls for the best views. (its the highest point of the walls). If you are in Dubrovnik this is a must

    Must do!
    It was hot, fysical and the views were stunning! We really enjoyed the walk on the walls. Make sure you go later on in the evening of very early in the morning. This way you enjoy it much more. Bring your own water, the prices on the walls are sky high.

    Fabulous views
    This is my favourite thing to do in Dubrovnik. The views are amazing and you can take as long as you like to walk round the city walls. The sea side has spectacular views and the other side gives fabulous views of the roof tops. Cost 35 euro, but better to but the 3 day pass for 45 euro and see some other attractions too.

The best thing you can do when you go to Dubrvonik. It was the highlight of my trip. Best advice to go in the evening when its cooler. Plenty of restaurants and drink stations to cool down and rest if needed. Everyone should do the tour if visiting Dubrovnik. Take your time and soak in the views - allow yourself 2 hours to enjoy the most of what this attraction has to offer.

We found the tourist office and purchased a 3 day Dubrovnik pass as it also included use of the buses for three days once activated. I felt it was a good deal, costing slightly more than an entrance to the walls. Access to several other venues was also included as well as discounts to others.

Once we passed through the Pile Gate, we found a lively square surrounded by landmarks which we would visit after we walked the walls. To the left of the Pile Gate we found one of the entrances, presented our tickets and climbed a steep stairway that lead up to the Minceta Tower. The prefect starting point to one of Dubrovnik’s best activity, albiet expensive, walking around the top of the walls. Posted signs sent us counterclockwise so we reached the Minceta Tower last.

We presented our tickets and began our climb of the WALL.

Walking around the entire walled perimeter of the old city of Dubrovnik allows for privileged views of the old medieval city and the sea, as well as being an attraction in itself. As mentioned in almost all the postings, it is expensive (€35 on May 30th).

These enormous walls that encircle the entire Old Town, dotted by fortresses and overlooking the sea are indeed the city’s most famous feature. The walls run an uninterrupted course encircling most of the old city.

The Dubrovnik City Walls were built all around the Old Town of Dubrovnik, to protect it from pirates and other unwelcome guests such as the Ottomans. The oldest systems of fortifications around the town were likely wooden palisades.

The walls we see today were built between 12th and 17th century, and were very well preserved until the siege of Dubrovnik. As we walked along the perimeter it was easy to see that nearly two-thirds of Dubrovnik’s roofs were replaced after the bombing as the new bright orange tiles were clearly visible.

The walls and ramparts are 1,940 meters long and reach a height of 25 meters in some parts and with numerous additions and modifications throughout their history, they have been considered to be amongst the great fortification systems of the Middle Ages, as they were never breached by a hostile army.

I read that this complex structure, amongst the largest and most complete in Europe, protected the freedom and safety of a “civilised” and “sophisticated” republic that flourished in peace and prosperity for some five centuries.

The walls were reinforced by three circular and 14 quadrangular towers, five bastions (bulwarks), two angular fortifications and the large St. John’s Fortress.
In 1979, the old city of Dubrovnik, which includes a substantial portion of the old walls of Dubrovnik, joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

As we strolled along the walls and took in the amazing views I could see why they have long been a source of pride for Dubrovnik.

This is a must do activity when coming to Dubrovnik for a good reason. As per what we saw on-line, this took us about 1 hour and 45 minutes but that was with several stops to admire the views and take photos. Great views of the old town, the port, the fort and all around. We were absolutely glad we got the three-day Dubrovnik pass as the cost of the walls alone were almost the cost of the pass and we got into several other places as well with it.

We were in Dubrovnik for two days, so here is hoping one of these cattle boats will be gone tomorrow, as we hope to take a ferry out from town (about ½ mile) to the island of Lokrum tomorrow.

we all boarded two OAT charter buses toward the entrance to the old city (hope to get there POSSIBLY before the cruise ship disgorges) and started our 1.5 hr. walking tour / exploration of the city center.
Nice day with clear skies and the Budda win has stopped for the morning (well so far).

Tom and his brother John had been to Dubrovnik many years ago where John & Tom walked all the city walls. We were amazed at the roofs of many buildings (new tile was the giveaway) that in the early 1990’s (experienced years of previous religious / ethnic wars = Balkan conflicts) that resulted in many Serbian artillery shelling coming into the city. Today those new red tile roofs have mostly bleached out mellow, so it is hard to tell which buildings were hit.

• The city is one of the world's most exquisite walled cities.
• Dubrovnik reflects its city, past as an independent city-state that rivaled Venice, and was also known by its Latin name, Ragusa, as a fortress city that, for years served as the base for a fleet of ships that carried trade between much of Europe and the Middle East (between 1358 to 1808).
• We viewed several areas where the Netflix series The Game of Thrones was also shot. Tom noted we need to watch the series again to check out the locations we related well to when the Queen stripped naked was forced to ride down the street in her “walk of shame – Tom wants to see if they covered up the clock in the tower --- Yea Right that is what he will be looking for / at). For those that have NOT watched the series, it starts off interesting, but can get quite graphic and totally unbelievable with dragon and the like.
After the tour we were free to stroll down the Stadum, the pedestrian-only main street through the heart of the Old Town.
The highlight for the walking tour for Tom was admiring the ornate Onofrio’s Fountain.

Brother John & Tom had walked the city walls free of charge, 20 years ago, but now they charged each of us 35€ to go up on the wall. For 35€ you can get a one-day pass that includes the museums. NOTE once you use that pass to go up on the wall or visit a museum, you cannot use it again to go back in any one feature again with that ticket.
No charge to walk through the city.
Beyond the pass also includes admission to museums, it also includes unlimited city bus access and discounts on some tours / attractions.
We went with the three-day pass, at 10€ more; as we will be coming back tomorrow, and the cost of the city bus is 2€ each trip, anyway.

They also have a seven-day pass, but I didn’t get that price information.
The city wall is 1.5 miles long (we put on 12,460 steps – most of them on steps / staircases = today).
After walking the South City wall, we stopped to have lunch at a nice cool seclude restaurant “Aquarius”, where we had great drinks and the best FRESH deep-fried Squid (oh so tender and tasty) the best I have had in years.
We walked below the North wall and into the large corner fort tower Mincet, where we explored its lower sections / rooms / museum.
It was out the city gate at 2 pm, and we caught the city bus back to the ship.

Great place for a stop over beverage and wonderful views but price of ticket to walk the wall has sky rocketed since 2020 which would put us off a return visit.
Time the walk for late afternoon and get the sunsets and crazy swifts looking for supper.

Again arrived on ncl epic ship,avoid using expensive ship transfer and either get a taxi for €10 or get a local bus if your a bit adventurous, into the old town area to see the walled city,this is where Game of Thrones was filmed and all the shops seems to have this theme,a little busy so might be an idea to set a meet place if there's a few of you,just in case you separate, also nice waterfront area with a few bars and cafe's, a good day out,also many options to take a boat trip

This is a UNESCO site with well preserved walls and fabulous views. Go early in the morning to beat the crowds and walk the perimeter. I would advise hiring a guide to take full advantage of the history. Following your tour plan to stay within the walls for lunch and shopping. Enjoy.

We walked the walls late afternoon and watched the sunset; fabulous.
There’s a lovely bar on the walls where you can chill with a beer whilst the sun sets. Bar closes about 45mins after the final admission time.
Ignore what the timings say on Tripadvisor. Look at the local boards at the entrance points to the walls. The walls have different opening times depending on the time of the season.

Definitely do not miss this. If the weather is great, you must take this change and walk all around the city. The wall goes all around in a circle - we did get confused in the middle and almost walked off - but just don't do that :D
Take your hat, sunglasses and SPF. It was worth 35 EUR per person for us, I would go again.
Be ready for stairs ;) Stairs everywhere.

Yes, this is a popular, busy attraction. Yes, you will pay a lot to walk this 1.5 mile loop under punishing heat and/or blustery winds. Yes, you will clamber up and down more stairs than you can count.

Yes, you would be silly to miss it.

HOT TIP: Buy the Dubrovnik Pass instead of the plain wall tour ticket. It costs the same, but includes unlimited (for the day) on/off access to the walls, plus a number of museums and other attractions in Dubrovnik. A number of places sell this pass. Some of them require cash only, but most will accept cards too.

What an astounding, scenic city! Pearl of the Adriatic indeed. Take your time (and plenty of water) as you walk along these walls. Bask in the unique historical atmosphere of the place. Even if you are the world's worst photographer, any pictures you take will turn out amazing.

When you are done, be sure to use that Dubrovnik Pass you so wisely purchased to visit the various museums that are included, especially the Rector's Palace. Make a day of it. It will be one of, if not THE, highlight of your Croatian adventure.
