Climb to the top of , which offers bird's-eye views of the fjord and the Old Town from the height of 1,200 m (3937 ft). Together with the Old Town and its natural surroundings, the fortifications are listed as a World Heritage Site. The Illyrians, Byzantines, Venetians, and Austrians built the fortress between the ninth and 19th centuries. Take the main entrance near the River Gate and ask for a descriptive brochure identifying various towers, citadels, gates, bastions, forts, cisterns, and churches along the way. Rest on a stone seat in front of the Church of Our Lady of Remedy. Walk carefully, as the stairs are unstable in places, and be sure to take a bottle of water with you.

Castle Of San Giovanni Reviews
Es una subida larga , que hay que hacerla con mucha paciencia , sobre todo los que pasamos los 50. Cobran 8 € , pero vale la pena. A mitad de camino hay una iglesia.

Halfway there's a church. I didn't really get to the top because the last part was very steep. The same is what you enjoy are the views of the bay and already with this height was enough. Beware of pickpockets. A person in my group was robbed of 200 euros from the backpack.
Αν τύχει να βρεθείς κοντά στο κοτορ μην χάσεις να μπεις στο κάστρο! Στην αρχή έχει καταστηματα με σουβενίρ, καφετέριες, εστιατόρια. Μετά φτάνεις στην είσοδο που πληρώνεις ένα ποσό 8€ για να μπεις στο ... more »If you happen to be near the Kodor, don't lose to the castle! At the beginning there are souvenir shops, cafes, restaurants. Then you arrive at the entrance where you pay a fee of €8 to enter the castle and climb the stairs. The view is lovely, the steps are a bit tedious but worth it! In the middle of the route there is a church to take pictures of the view. Very nice place!
Подъём стоит 8 евро. У нас на подъём и спуск ушло два часа. Рассчитывайте свои силы и время. Вы не успеете подняться на гору во время экскурсии, посетите город повторно, это не трудно, в Черногории оч... more »The rise costs 8 euros. It took us two hours to get up and down. Calculate your strength and time. You will not have time to climb the mountain during the tour, visit the city again, it is not difficult, in Montenegro is a very good transport connection between the cities. It is better to go in unhot weather, in the morning.
The Place is fantastic, obviously it's a tourist area living mostly for the summer time but I would love to have someone cleaning the path at least a couple of times during the day! Also to start your hike it costs 8 euros per person, I'd expect someone that removes the trash. The view on top is wonderful and fulfilling! Loved it.
I have been here couple of times and there is something really special about this place... it is the view! It feels like you are touching the sky!!! For more I suggest you to put it on your “must to” list... you will never regret!
This was a great hike to the top of the castle and fortress. Prepare yourself to climb 1350 steps and get an amazing view. I strongly recommend going there before 7:30. The early you go, less people will be there and also it’s free. If you go later there’s an 8 euros fee. Also, bring lots of water and a towel, if you dare going there at noon on summer. Consider that there’s not too much shade on the way up and it can get intense. Wear appropriate shoes. I’d rate this a 5/5 but I think the place is not properly maintained. They charge 8 euros and the fortress and castle are dirty, there’s trash everywhere, urine smell, and some path are rough.
Beautiful views - very worth going there, but I recommend the free 'ladder of kotor' path instead of paying 8 euros for going up the hard stairs. Recommend this
Beautiful view on the bay. Definitely a place worth seeing! The trail through the old church is much more convenient and more pleasant than stages on the wall with queues and traffic. And by the way, it's free :)
