What is included in Dubrovnik walls ticket?
Ticket for Dubrovnik City Walls gives access to the walls and allows you to do one lap around the Wall. It is exclusively for one entry and one visit to City Walls. When you leave the Walls, returning to the Walls is impossible without buying another ticket.
A visit to the fort of Lovrijenac is included. It is a detached fort isolated from the city walls but part of the same fortification system.
When a staff member scans your ticket, it is valid for 72 hours (3 days). You can visit the fort within this period. It works the other way around - first tour St. Lawrence Fort, then walk along the Walls. In either case, it is only possible to visit the walls and fort once with a single ticket.
If you only wish to visit the fort and skip the Walls, you can buy only a ticket for the St. Lawrence fort. The ticket is €15.
Remember to keep the ticket. You can then show that ticket to buy a ticket for the city walls if you change your mind, and you will be charged €20 for the price difference.
