Climb to a viewpoint overlooking Dubrovnik’s Old Town, which is encircled by an advanced network of forts, bastions, and towers that have withstood the sieges of ages.
walk into the heart of Old Town and enjoy a sightseeing tour through the alleys and annals of Dubrovnik’s history. Established in the 7th century as a protectorate of the Byzantine Empire the Republic of Ragusa, as it was known then, ruled itself as a free state for almost 400 years beginning in the 14th century.
The Dubrovnik of old was a beacon of liberal values and intellectual innovation, abolishing slavery as early as 1418 and attracting the region’s finest playwrights, painters, and physicists.
Enjoy a trip to the Dominican Monastery, continuously embellished upon from the 12th to the 16th centuries, with Gothic, Romanesque, Renaissance, and Baroque influences all evident in its heart-stopping totality.
Tour the Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary, built as legend would have it by Richard the Lion Heart, who donated the money for its construction when his ship was spared from a terrible storm off the banks of Dubrovnik. The Cathedral’s blue-green dome rises high above the roofs of the Old City and is joined to the west by a free-standing baptistery built from red and white stones.
Enjoy free time to wander beneath the honey-colored ramparts of the city and the narrow cobbled streets that have absorbed time’s numberless footfalls.
