Overview

There are few places in Europe where medieval walls, red-tiled roofs and marble streets meet the azure-colored sea. Dubrovnik is just that place.

Discover the main sights and hidden gems in the warren of streets in Stari Grad, or Old Town, with this educational and entertaining 1.5-hour guided tour. Stroll down the Stradun, the main limestone-clad pedestrian thoroughfare, and learn about the history of the city dating back to the 7th century.

Dubrovnik never fails to awe the visitor; its streets paved with white limestone, its walls crowning the city, and its medieval sandstone-colored houses oozing with history.

This 1.5-hour guided walking tour takes you deep into the city’s 1, 400-year history, recalling ancient tales when Dubrovnik was one of the world’s most prosperous port cites. It tells tales of war and lets the tour-goer in on the culture of the city.

After meeting in Pile area, in front of Sky bar, begin the journey through history and through Old Town. Pass the Franciscan Monastery and admire Orlando’s Column, a monument on the Stradun inspired by the city’s long-standing freedom and sovereignty. See, too, Onofrio’s Fountain, built in 1438 at the end of a 8-mile (12-km) aqueduct that gave the city its water supply.
