Atop the city walls you will have panoramic view on the entire city. The walls stretch more than 1940 m (6365 ft.) and consist of the main wall, sixteen towers, three forts, six bastions (bulwarks), two corner forts (cantonatas), three pre-walls with several turrets, three moats, two barbicans, two drawbridges and one breakwater.
The first tower you'll see is Minčeta Tower, which ressembles a chess piece.
On the right, you'll get a spectacular view of Dubrovnik's Old Town including the slope that was the site of the first Slavic settlement here and in just 300 meters, you will reach Ploče Gate and the Revelin fortress which was designed to protect the city against an inland attack by the Turks.
The next highlight is Sv. Ivan (St John) fortress which protects the port and city on the southeastern side, then see Fort Bokar, one of the oldest buildings of its kind in Europe.From its walls, you get the best view of the outer western fortress of Lovrijenac, which looms on a 37-meter high rock.
The city,built on a shore, has always been protected by the sea, preventing surprise enemy attacks. The walls, built in sturdy stone mined from nearby locations, did the rest, enveloping the city in their solid arms stretching for miles, giving inhabitants a safe and secure place to live.
From the southern section of the city's walls, you can watch the sail boats and kayakers float along. .
