Walls in Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik

See the Dubrovnik Guide ›
Croatia's insider take:

Dubrovnik's 82-foot walls were built between the 8th and 13th centuries to keep invaders out, but these days the picturesque limestone fortifications do a better job of attracting foreigners than repelling them. The walls extend for more than a mile, so set aside an hour to walk their length and take in the view of terra-cotta roofs and the sea. The most photogenic (and romantic) view comes one to two hours before closing time, when the sunset gently illuminates the rooftops of Old Town. Plan more time if you want to stop for a coffee or cocktail (vendors set up cafés along the way) or visit the Aquarium and Maritime Museum at the wall's southeastern edge. A staircase by the Pile Gate, at the beginning of the Stradun, leads to the entrance. But you can also access the walls from the Franciscan Monastery, St. Luke's Tower, and St. John's Fortress.
