After picking you up at the pre-arranged meeting point or at your hotel, we'll begin our full day experience discovering the fabled walled city of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Our air-conditioned coach takes the scenic route along the winding coast and stops at several overlooks for amazing panoramic views of the Dalmatian islands. We'll also stop in Ston, known worldwide for its famous fresh oysters - with time to enjoy these ocean delicacies (optional).
We will arrive to the “pearl of the Adriatic” before noon. Each corner of this legendary city is its own unique experience. Our professionally guided tour is led by a local resident with years of experience whose passion for the city will be evident as you walk these ancient streets and marvel at the rich architectural ensemble all around you. The guided tour lasts for about an hour and a half and afterward you have enough time to re-visit the main attractions of the Old Town and enjoy a local cafe or the many shops. This memorable excursions through Croatia's most famous medieval city begins at the monumental Pile Gate, located at the top of Stradun, the splendid main promenade street of the Old Town. We keep walking to the Franciscan Monastery, whose cloister is one of the most magnificent sites in the city and then to the house of the oldest pharmacy in Europe opened in 1317. A little further is Sponza Palace, notable for its portico with columns and elaborate stone carvings which today houses the State Archives. Our tour ends with a visit to the Cathedral which was built on the ruins of a 12thC church but then destroyed by the great earthquake of 1667. Having experienced the most important parts of the Old Town, there's time to go back and explore its hidden corners by yourself. Feel free to climb the stairs to the walls that allow you to walk around the Old Town from high up on its ramparts; or take a cable car for a stunning view of the famous red tile roofs and the sea. Dubrovnik is yours to discover!
