Dubrovnik’s Old City Walls Walking Tour: Croatia

For the best views of the Old Town and harbor, take a leisurely stroll atop the historic city walls. Winding 1,940 meters around the city, the walls were originally constructed in the 8th century, but most of those intact today were built between the 13-16th centuries. The walls reach a peak height of approximately 25 meters, but sweeping views of the Adriatic Sea and neatly stacked, orange-tiled rooftops of the Old Town can be seen from any vantage point. Along the way you’ll pass cannons carefully overlooking the fortified city, fortresses, towers and gated cells. You’re also likely to encounter local artists painting the scenery and displaying their artwork along the ancient walls.
