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 Walks - Ancient City Walls & Wars 2h Walking Tour
Our tour guide Jadranka did a fabulous job. She loves us through the tour very safely and always manages to stop on a quiet place for further discussions. She carried a binder with additional maps and photos to supplement her stories. An excellent tour.

Dubrovnik Super Saver: Mt Srd Cable Car Ride plus Old Town and City Walls Walking Tour
- Cable care is really good idea in Dubrovnik, it is worth of money - Walls almost kills as (I mean my legs almost died after that trip), but it was worth it also! Views are amazing - Dubravka was very nice, funny and open to the group. Especially historical stories was interesting to me. She's a local guide so her observations and experience about Dubrovnik and it's history were special to us - Like the trip a lot! - good recommendations rearding museums, galerries, etc.

Fantastic tour, I couldn’t recommend the 5pm slot enough, the view across the city as it changes colours leading up to sunset are phenomenal. Desa our guide was engaging and interesting, I learnt a lot and also got tips for the rest of my stay. Do it on day 1 if you can :)

Dubrovnik Super Saver: Mt Srd Cable Car Ride plus Old Town and City Walls Walking Tour
This tour was really good. The Cable Car Ride gives you an ample view of the city, ocean and islands close to Dubrovnik. Our tour guide, Elvis, was excellent. Very knowledgeable and experienced. This was a very nice tour to get to know Dubrovnik more intensively.

Private Dubrovnik City Walls & City Tour
Josip was a great guide around the city. He explained the rich History of Dubrovnik and the major highlights within the city walls. Also as an old city native he shared good lunch and dinner spots. As well as his experience during the 90s war. Recommend highly to take this tour.

Dubrovnik City Walls Admission Ticket
Walking the old walls of Dubrovnik is a must do. You get a whole different view of the city from up there. My teenage daughters and I all enjoyed it very much. There can be a bit of climbing but it’s quite manageable. The views of the old town and sea made it all worthwhile!

Dubrovnik Walks Combo: Old Town & Ancient City Walls - 2 tours at a discount
Amazing tour guide. His English was very fluent like an American & very knowledgeable. Both tours were worth it as we got to hear lot of history.

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.

How to Get There

Dubrovnik’s ancient city walls encircle Old Town and are reachable on foot from anywhere in the city’s historic center. The walls’ main entrance is at the Pile Gate on the western wall, but you can also enter from the Minceta Tower in the north and the Ploce Gate in the east.

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.
