Pile Gate is where our shuttle dropped us off from the airport. It serve as a great entrance to a stunning Game of Thrones adventure.

It's the main entrance into the Old Town and is simply stunning! It's a one way system in and out as it is very busy around there it would be chaos without this!

On approaching this gate you can tell that you are approaching something pretty magnificent and on entering the old town you won’t be disappointed. Impressive medieval architecture.

Because most people arrive by bus, this is a very busy place, even needing `keep right ` signs! However, it is convenient, with ramped access and then flat going onto Stradun unlike Buza, the North entrance where you must decend innumerable steep stone steps.

Very busy area. Entrance & bridge is where local bus terminates. Take stunning photos from bridge, before entering old town. Stunning.

Great views at this gate of Old Town walls. Really lovely scenes. Can get taxis from here also and is a shorter way out of Old Town than other gate.

I am sure they would take euros. I do not have a cost, but don't feel it would be very much. I cannot help further as we took a bus to Dubrovnik then caught a local bus to the Pile Gate and it was very inexpensive.

I can't add much more to what others have said. But... From what I remember we did walk down that way. It is relatively easy walking from the Bus Stop down the main street in the centre of the old town, then at the bottom... More
