The Basics

Whether you arrive in Dubrovnik by sea or land, the towering city walls will be the first thing you see, and there’s no escaping their presence. The most adventurous way to explore the ancient walls is to walk their entire length, while Dubrovnik walking tours often include a visit to popular lookouts such as the Pile Gate or the Minceta Tower. For the best views of the walls themselves, opt for a boat cruise or sea kayaking excursion and gaze up at the mighty ramparts from the ocean.

Dubrovnik Highlight!
Our City Walls tour with Davor was a highlight of our time in Dubrovnik. He provided the right amount of history and humor to truly understand the significance of walls through time. Even though it was hot, Davor always found the shade and the right pace! Amazing

Dubrovnik Super Saver: Mt Srd Cable Car Ride plus Old Town and City Walls Walking Tour
Great trip and very flexible. Katrina was our guide. and gave us may useful tips on visiting the city. Particularly time of day etc to do the city walls (recommend early oaring 8am when it opens, not too warm and not many people ) also where to start from - there are 3 entrance posts - so best do the steepest first.

Dubrovnik Super Saver: Mt Srd Cable Car Ride plus Old Town and City Walls Walking Tour
Tour started with ride up Mt Srd and panoramic views of the old town. The timing could not have been better, we were the first group up and experienced some privacy, personal space at the top while the line below grew and the cable car became more crowded. The walking tour of dubrovnik old town was informative. Our favorite portion was the city walls which was a self guided ticket. Grouping all three together made it a value buy, but would only absolutely recommend the city walls ticket.

Beautiful views of the city and the water. I would advise people to go early in the morning or later in the day. It gets very hot on a bright sunny day.

Went on the City Wall Tour with Goran, who was a fantastic guide. Enthusiastic, energetic, knowledgeable, and unflappable, he did an outstanding job of giving us an overview of the City, it's history, and it's development. He gave us excellent recommendations regarding pictures, and sites. We appreciate the opportunity we had to do a walking tour with such a great guide.

Shore Excursion: Exclusive 'Game of Thrones' Tour (with City Walls ticket)
Barbara, our tour guide is absolutely excellent, charming, & maximally accommodating to all tour guests, & she knows more about Game of Thrones than me, which is huge. Worth every Kuna we spent & more. She made the day perfect for this Superfan. And she shares all she knows, which is everything about Croatian history.

City Walls and Dubrovnik Old Town
Although the weather was rainy, we had a pleasant stroll on the city walls and were given information about history and culture and current daily activities. Ivana was easy to talk to and understand. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting amazing views of Old town while understanding the story of how this beautiful place came to be.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • There is a one-way (counterclockwise) system operating on the walls, so once you start walking, you must continue until the next exit point.

  • Bring a hat, sunscreen, and plenty of water in summer, as there is little shade atop the walls.

  • Wear comfortable shoes.

  • Due to the many steps and uneven ground, the walls are not wheelchair or stroller accessible.

When to Get There

Dubrovnik’s city walls are open to the public year-round, although opening times vary throughout the year. The walls can get busy during the peak summer months, so it’s best to make an early start to beat the crowds. Avoid walking between 11am and 3pm, when the sun is at its strongest.

Walking the Dubrovnik City Walls

The best way to experience the walls of Dubrovnik is to hike the 1.2-mile (2-kilometer) circular route, which loops around all of Old Town. Start by climbing up to the ramparts above the Pile Gate, pass the Minceta Tower and Fort Lovrijenac (one of several Game of Thrones filming locations in Dubrovnik), and then continue to the Ploce Gate and around the Old City Harbor. Along the way, enjoy spectacular ocean views and admire landmarks including the Dominican Monastery, Revelin Fortress, Mount Srd, and 15th-century Bokar Fortress.
