You'll explore the labyrinth of short, narrow stone streets, the market place, palaces, towers, monasteries and houses, each of which is over 300 years old.

    Dubrovnik has always been the centre of diplomatic liaisons between east and west and over the years it has been subjected to many natural and man-made disasters - fires, earthquakes and wars but has always risen again like the phoenix to be the splendid city you see today.

  • 3. City Walls Walking Tour

    "Those who seek paradise on earth", George Bernard Shaw once wrote, "should come to Dubrovnik". Many agree with him and this is one of the reasons why the Old Town (Stari Grad) and the walls were declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979.

    Leaving Pile Square your guide will walk you through the west side entrance to the Old Town where your exploration begins. You'll explore the town of Dubrovnik before going to the walls, which were completed in the 13th century. The ramparts are still intact and encircle the old city for over a mile and a half. Climbing the stairway at Pile Gate, you will soon reach the top of the wall where your guide will walk you along its entire length. You will see the gorgeous Minčeta Fortress, St. John's Fortress, Bokar Fortress and the Maritime Museum.

    • Included: guide, city walls ticket.

  • 4. Island Cruise

    Some of the best views of Dubrovnik are from the sea and the historical Galleon is certainly the best stage for such scenery. During this cruise you'll see the three most beautiful islands in the Dubrovnik archipelago – Koločep, Lopud and Šipan commonly known as the Elafiti islands.The legend of the islands is hidden in its name - the ancient Greeks used to hunt deer and named these islands Deer Islands.

    You'll see gardens with orange and lemon trees, charming villages with elegant manor houses, smaller homes once belonging to the seafarers and little churches. Visit all the three Elaphite islands and enjoy a lunch of grilled fish and wine whilst being entertained by local musicians.
