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)
Obama was wonderful! She was very informative and knowledgeable about the area in the history. I wasn’t sure if I thought the Game of Thrones tour would be worth it but after taking it, it was completely worth it for all the beautiful views and knowledge and history about the town. Book it! Great suggestions on food and elderflower G&T!

Shore Excursion: Exclusive 'Game of Thrones' Tour(with City Walls ticket)
I loved this trip and recommend it to everyone! It’s not only about Game of Thrones, our guide was amazing and talked about the history of Dubrovnik as well. It was great to see Fort Lovrijenac, and be able to walk the City walls on our own time.

Dubrovnik Walks - Ancient City Walls & Wars 2h Walking Tour
We started our visit to Dubrovnik with this tour, and we are so glad we did. It gave us a helpful and thorough introduction to the city, as well as its layout. Marco was very engaging and made the city’s history come to life. He was incredibly professional and personable. One of the best guided tours we have ever experienced. Thank you for sharing your contagious hometown love with us, Marco.

Dubrovnik Walks - Ancient City Walls & Wars 2h Walking Tour
We had an incredible tour with Jadranka exploring the Dubrovnik Walls. Since there was not a lot of tourists coming that week, we lucked out and ended up with just us on the tour. Instead of cancelling what was booked as a group tour, we got to do it with her as our personal guide. She was very knowledgeable and so personable, we had a blast and learned a ton. Highly recommend her and this tour to anyone visiting the city!

Dubrovnik City Walls Walking Tour (entrance ticket included)
Superb excursion. I couldn’t have wished for a more knowledgeable, accommodating and personable guide. Danijela was the perfect accompaniment - a history expert who also knew where all the Game of Thrones scenes were shot. I highly recommend this tour!

Dubrovnik Walks Combo: Old Town & Ancient City Walls - 2 tours at a discount
This was a lovely tour. Our guide Jadranka gave us all the information we wanted to know, entertained us with stories from history and was very helpful and informative. The tour was well organized and well paced so it wasn't a problem to walk around even in the heat. I think this is a good combination for seeing the main sights of Dubrovnik.

Dubrovnik Super Saver: Mt Srd Cable Car Ride plus Old Town and City Walls Walking Tour
The tour was great. I booked a 9 am meeting time outside of Old Town, but our ship did not end up docking until 9 am. We got to the meeting place 10 minutes late and they tour already left for the cable car. Another tour company guide, got in touch with the tour company and we were able to catch up with them just before they boarded the cable car. The tour was wonderful as was the guide.

Dubrovnik Super Saver: Mt Srd Cable Car Ride plus Old Town and City Walls Walking Tour
Views of city from top of ride were incredible. Interesting guide. Wish we had been able to walk the Wall in the morning. We were tired by the time we’d walked the city and the cable car excursion to start the Wall walk, plus we were in the full afternoon sun.

Dubrovnik Shore Excursion: City Walls Walking Tour (entrance ticket included)
This tour was exactly as described and we enjoyed it immensely. Our guide, Jenera, was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Dubrovnik history while walking the streets of the old town. After a short break, we climbed the city walls for breathtaking views. This was a highlight of our trip. Highly recommended.

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.
