I would’t say that Dubrovnik’s city walls is „a must”. You can see the city quite well without climbing and tryin’ to pass other tourists. I wouldn’t recommend it - especially during the hot summer days.

Do this late in the day, we didn’t get a guide and the kids really enjoyed it. Very busy and it was only May half term. Summer might be best avoided here.

Definitely pay the ticket and check out the walls. Some tips: go first thing in the morning! It gets HOT the later in the day you go, I was there around 10am and it was really warm. Also bring water with you, there is water available for purchase, but its so pricey! Lots of good photo ops, bring your camera and be prepared to climb lots of stairs!

Not for the faint hearted but if you can manage it an essential part of your Dubrovnik visit. If you are a keen photographer, in the morning you will get the best views from the mountain side walls while the afternoon provides the best views from the sea walls.
