Pile Gate meeting point

Pile is the name of the Western entrance (gate) to the Dubrovnik Old City but it also refers to the area just beside the entrance, where you see the main bus stop for tourist and local public buses and a taxi parking. It is very easy to find.
I usually meet my guests beside Amerling fountain , which you can easily find as it is big fountain centrally located on Pile square known as Brsalje.
Almost all local buses have their final stop at Pile and it is also a final stop for the cruise ship shuttle buses which are anchored in main Dubrovnik port of Gruz. Bus ticket costs 12 kunas (~1,60€) if you buy it on the bus and 10 kunas (~1,30 €) at tobacco shops. A taxi to Pile costs around 10€ from the port of Gruž or Lapad. Call a Taxi at number +385 20 970 (Taxi call center).
