Most people besiege the Minčeta Tower from the staircase to the City Wall near Pile Gate. It gets crowded with lots of overzealous tourists. If you prefer the road less traveled, then approach it from Peline Street which runs along the northern wall. It is virtually empty. As you climb the stairs, look for a small doorway that leads to an outdoor basketball court. You’ll be rewarded with the best views as shown from the horizontal photo of the tower in this gallery.
