Dubrovnik Old Town Walking Tour

1 day tour

Confined within its impressive walls as it has been for centuries, Dubrovnik jets out of the Croatia`s rocky shoreline looking inviting both from (the) land and the sea. Knitting its miraculous history from the early middle ages, at its peak in the 1400’s and 1500’s it was a Republic with thousands of seamen and more than 200 merchant ships. With the city statute active long before and the oldest preserved contract on maritime insurance dating back to 1395, on this tour many of Dubrovnik facts are bringing history to life with our careful choice of guides.

ITINERARY

  • Meet your guide at the Pile Gate
  • Guided walking tour of Dubrovnik

 

DESCRIPTION

Confined within its impressive walls as it has been for centuries, Dubrovnik jets out of the Croatia`s rocky shoreline looking inviting both from (the) land and the sea. Knitting its miraculous history from the early middle ages, at its peak in the 1400’s and 1500’s it was a Republic with thousands of seamen and more than 200 merchant ships. With the city statute active long before and the oldest preserved contract on maritime insurance dating back to 1395, on this tour many of Dubrovnik facts are bringing history to life with our careful choice of guides.

Our tour begins with the city’s lifeline, Stradun promenade, which encompasses all the major sights of Dubrovnik’s Old City. Starting from Pile Gate and St. Saviour’s churchyou will see the Onofrio’s Fountain, Franciscan and Dominican churches, the bell tower, Old city harbour, the Cathedral; each place with a unique story behind it and backstreet charm always just a few steps away. The crown jewel of Dubrovnik is the Knezev Dvor, or the Rector’s Palace. Today as the city`s historical museum, it lies at the very end of our stories, on a lively public square, still wearing that honourable inscription that might be useful for some of today`s politicians – Obliti privatorum publica curate (Forget the private and take care of the public).
