Climb to the top of the walls and you will get a beautiful view of the bay. It is fatiguing but totally worth it!

The views are amazing but if you can't make it too high is ok. You will be able to get beautiful pictures a few minutes after starting to climb. Bring water, comfortable shoes. Not for little kids what you need to carry.

When in Kotor you have to do the city walls tour as it is absolutely fantastic and gives you breathtaking views of the town and the bay. You do have to be fit and able because there are some very steep steps.

The city walls of Kotor are fully preserved and a very large facility that encloses not only the old town, but also the rocks above it. They have three entrance gates around the city and climb to the highest point above the city.To climb above...More

Personally I'd say no. I don't remember seeing any children when I went last week. It's quite demanding... there are viewing points though before you get to the top, so maybe don't expect to be able to make it all the way... More

Hi Stimbo, I did the walk in March, and went up and down the same route. We started near La Dolce Vita Apartments and it is quite a trek, but worth it for the views. I've heard that it is 1400 steps and that might be... More
