The entrance to the Old City of Dubrovnik offers a beautiful piece of historical and authentic architecture. The walkways are not intimidatingly busy either, however we visited in October and it could be feared that this would be heaving during the summer!

A beautiful entry into the old town, can get very busy with the cruise ship passengers and tourists busing in. Most walking tour start from near the gate also. A must see.

This is one of the better ways to enter the Old Town Area without the Tourist buses pouring in but sits at the top level of stairs in the city! Remember you are going down and if you have problems with stairs may think about...More

Pile Gate is where our shuttle dropped us off from the airport. It serve as a great entrance to a stunning Game of Thrones adventure.

It's the main entrance into the Old Town and is simply stunning! It's a one way system in and out as it is very busy around there it would be chaos without this!

On approaching this gate you can tell that you are approaching something pretty magnificent and on entering the old town you won’t be disappointed. Impressive medieval architecture.

I am sure they would take euros. I do not have a cost, but don't feel it would be very much. I cannot help further as we took a bus to Dubrovnik then caught a local bus to the Pile Gate and it was very inexpensive.

I can't add much more to what others have said. But... From what I remember we did walk down that way. It is relatively easy walking from the Bus Stop down the main street in the centre of the old town, then at the bottom... More
