All reviews bring water worth the climb selling water early in the morning take your time worth the effort amazing views old town san giovanni flip flops wear proper shoes great exercise coming down euro fee locals selling loose rocks view of the bay
The view to the old city is great. It was a long way and the stone road can be slippery. We walked up to the Church of Our Lady of Remedy and the view is fantastic. However, I feel that the 8 euro ticket is...More
This was on a particualry hot day in August, when myself and partner decided to climb here. The price is good and the climb itself is hard work - I'm not sure I've ever sweated so much. The views at the top however are well...More
Beware of the seemingly never-ending climb up over 1300 steps. There is a turnstile where a man collects the 8 euro entrance fee to the fortress. The church is about a quarter of the way up. The views are spectacular so it is definitely worth...More
You have to do this. It’s a brutal walk up, but the views are incredible and the fortress itself is interesting too. EUR 8 is a bit steep (no pun intended) in this part of the world, but it’s really an amazing thing to do....More
The remnants of the fort are interesting, but the quality of the workout (roughly 2 hours up/back assuming some breaks) is great and the views of the harbor and ships is hard to beat. Afterwards, go to one of the local nearby beaches and have...More
If you start your hike before 8 AM you can enjoy not only better temperatures to climb steep path, but you'll be able to see sunlight slowly spilling within the bay. Climbing up and down takes 1 hour in a good pace, including some hill...More
If you go to Kotor you MUST go to this castle. Yes, sure, the 1.300 stairs are many, too many. But believe me.. it is worth! The view is amazing and you will remember forever the happiness of this achievent
We arrived by cruise ship for a day visit to the town of Kotor,and we were recommended to climb up to the Castle of San Giovanni.when we looked up it looked very daunting but we thought we would give it a try.
It costs 8...More
The fort is named after the hill of Saint John. Already during Roman times there was a fort here initiated by Byzantine Emperor Justinian in 532. Most of the structure you see today was constructed during the rule of the Venetians, though important changes were...More

Robert from the Netherlands was a lot faster than us. We hiked up maybe 2/3 of the way, stopping for a lot of photos and to spend time with the cats, and that took us a good 30-40 minutes. We were on a time crunch so we ended there, but 30 minutes from bottom to top is very optimistic. We're in our mid 50's and in decent shape, but it is a tough high not only due to the incline (which is very steep), but also the slipperiness of the rocks. Worth your time though.
