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 Super Saver: Mt Srd Cable Car Ride plus Old Town and City Walls Walking Tour
Enjoyed the history lessons about Dubrovnik given by our guide was great. We enjoyed the ride up the cable car and seeing the spectacular views of the surrounding area. My one comment is that the city wall portion of the tour was self guided which surprised me as I expecte to be part of the guided tour.

We had the pleasure of having Ivan as our guide. He was born in Dubrovnik and had lived in the old city. Beyond having much knowledge about the city's history, he loves it, making the tour dynamic, informative, and attractive. He also gives tips on how to explore this wonderful city further. We had a wonderful time! A useful proposal to be introduced to why Dubrovnik is the Adriatic pearl!

Dubrovnik City Walls Walking Tour (entrance ticket included)
The entire tour was amazing. Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and educated and it was great to see the entire city. She went above and beyond though with me and what would be a private solo tour of the walls. I only wish I had more on me to tip her, please let her know that.

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.

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.
