The pile gate is beautiful, but it will be amassed with tourists from cruise ships. On peak summer days there is a queue for the shuttle buses to disembark close to this gate. The gate and the surrounding area has some great shops and views.

When you walk through this gate you enter a world of the past. It is all right in front of you just beckoning you to walk down the streets and soak it all in. A wonderful experience that you will remember forever.

Pile Gate is one of the main entrances to Old Town Dubrovnik with a bridge and a draw bridge. Beautiful landscape on both sides of the bridge. Beautiful entrance through the wall with stairs down to the city. Easy bus access to this gate.
