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.

Castle Of San Giovanni Reviews

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.

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!
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!
