Do not miss walking the city walls when you're in Dubrovnik. Whether you choose to take the guided tour or not, it's amazing. We walked around by ourselves and it easily took us a couple of hours.There are a lot of steps and with the sun bearing down I'd recommend buying lots of water beforehand, seeing as the places on the walls that do sell drinks are very expensive. Evry new part of the wall you get to you have to stop and take in the new view. The ocean, Lokrum Island, the inside of the city, the people canoeing. It was just breathtaking. Don't listen to the bad reviews on here, I read a load of them and they're ridiculous. Of course it will cost a bit of money but, they're city walls built centuries ago that withstood a huge earthquake, why would you want to miss out on them?! Do it.

Great to visit for a day,take a tour of the walls,check out all the historical sites in there (and they are crammed in there) See the Game Of Thrones filming locations and get the full scope of merchandise.Prices are higher here than other local areas but not too bad.

What can one even say, prepare for a medium long walk and some stairs, try to avoid visiting during the sunniest part of the day

Would highly recommend a tour of the ancient city walls. Full of history and the most spectacular views with close ups of all the main features of the old town

Well worth it . Not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. The views were stunning . Bring your drink and lunch as there isn't much of a choice on the walls.
