Create an itinerary including Walls of Piran
Put one euro in the locked gate to access the stairs and climb to the top of Walls of Piran, offering views of the city and the sea. The three walls were built during the town's long history, and large parts remain well-preserved today. See the ruins of the first wall from the 7th century in the old part of the town. The third wall with its seven towers built between 1470 and 1533 is almost completely intact. As you explore the walls, look for the oldest of the eight city entrances or "gates," which dates back to the 13th century. Among other gates, pay attention to the city's best-preserved Gothic doors, constructed in 1483 by mayor Dolfin. To visit Walls of Piran and other attractions in Piran, use our Piran trip planner.

  • Quite cheap entrance (€3), and gives you a very nice view over Piran and it's surroundings. Multiple towers along the wall.

  • Very beatufiul and amazing sights from here. I think that it's a good spot to watch the sunset (it closes at 9PM) and the sun sets around 8:30pm (in august at least). The entrance costs 2 EUR for...

  • Nice view of Piran and the bay. It’s good to walk and a quite brief moment. 3€ entrance fee (adults on 21.09.2022)
  • Good place for beautiful views of Piran. A little steep walk up to the walls and narrow steep staircase up to towers. But nothing that a relatively fit person cannot do.
  • Amazing views to city of Piran and 360° view's from the tallest tower to Slovenian Alps Italy Croatia
  • Amazing views of Piran at the top. I think this is probably the place to get the best views of Piran's plaza as well as the church in the distance. There's a bit of a hike to the walls as they are on a hilltop. Once you pay to enter the walls, the steps leading up to the highest walls are the most steep (sometimes made of uneven rocks), so I wouldn't recommend anyone who have difficulties with steep stairs to head up to the highest walls (the walls at the lower parts should be fine and you can still get a relatively good view). Wear sturdy sports shoes to make your climb easier. Totally worth it with the cheap entrance fees! Note that the walls are closed when there's rain for safety reasons.
  • The great view is always from the top of the mountain, it works here as well. Only a few steps you are worth the tickets.
