The Pile gate is the main entrance to the old town, and as such, it gets crazy busy. Take deep breaths, practice your patience, and enjoy it. Even better, if you're staying in Old Town, get up early and come to the gate around 7am...More

Pile gate is one of the entrance, be prepared as it does get busy with tours and lots of people getting off buses

A visit to the Dubrovniks Castle, and the old town is an incredible experience. The sightseeing is amazing. I highly recommend.

This is the main gate into the old town. There are steps but also wheelchair accessible route. Very well preserved. One can also walk in from the moat underneath the drawbridge.

When with my four year old daughter. Good photo op beside the harbour, and also looking down towards the old town. Very busy on both occasions that we were there.

Impressive but chaotic. On one day 3 cruise ships were in port and the queues outside the gate were causing chaos. We used our common sense and walked round the outside and entered at the quiet side entrance near the cable car.

This is the main entrance to town. Quite imposing. So busy there is a one way entry and exit in force. A very good idea. Have a good look at the splendid stonework and there should be a minstrel playing an instrument there. Good access...More

The elevation was great. However, when the cruise ships are in, it is a disaster like trying to move a herd of cattle. There are steps and a ramp for those who cannot negotiate the steps

The historic gate is a good starting point for exploring the Old Town or the city walls. I recommend going after 4pm, before that the cruise ship tourists literally swarm the place. The atmosphere is very different in the evening. Calmer!
