City Walls, Kotor

4.5
Up the mountains and through the hills, hike to 9th-century City Walls to get unmatched views of the city and the landscape from spots as high as 260 m (850 ft) above the sea. Numerous empires have left their mark on this protective structure. Gates, churches, and forts sit almost perfectly preserved along the way. Climb some 1,400 steps, and observe the historic structure flawlessly blended into the lush, colorful landscape. Don't forget to turn around every now and then--unforgettable views of the Adriatic basin will unfold right beneath your feet.
