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.

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.

Dubrovnik City Walls Walking Tour (entrance ticket included)
Meeting Elvis.....he was superb guiding us round the walls and old town. We would highly recommend the tour with him. There was on my wife and I and two other people on the walk...it felt like we had our own private tour which we did for the second half as the other two left half way through. Fabulous trip, well worth it

Book this tour, take with Goran if possible

Ancient City Walls & Wars 2h Walking Tour
Our guide Goran was incredible. I know people say that often about guides, but he acted as a guide, advocate, comedian, food, restaurant, and activity referral, and was super genuine and passionate about everything during the tour. He was also happy to take any and all photos for everyone in the group, I even saw him take a few for some random folks that were not in our group. I think the tour should be listed as a longer tour and that guides should be compensated for giving a longer tour and we went well over the listed time and we were all happy and thankful for the extra time spent and the extra information provided.

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.
