Description

Starting from main meeting point in Split 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 new highway and as we slowly move to the coastal road it opens up the amazing panoramic views of Dalmatian islands and the wonderful delta of the river Neretva with the endless fruit and vegetables fields which represent the main living economy of this beautiful area.

We will arrive to Dubrovnik 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 through these ancient streets and marvel to the rich architectural ensemble all around you. The guided tour lasts for about an hour and a half and afterwards you have enough time to re-visit the main attractions of the Old Town and enjoy a local cafe or many crafts and shops. This memorable excursion 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 oldest pharmacy in Europe opened in 1317. A little further is the 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 12th C church but then destroyed by the great  earthquake in 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! On the way back to Split we also visit Ston, known as the gate of the Dubrovnik Republic whose 5,5 km 15th cent. defensive stone walls used to protect this area from the enemies. Ston is known worldwide for its famous fresh oysters – with time to enjoy these seafood delicacies (optional).

Join us and discover why Dubrovnik is considered to be a true Adriatic pearl!
