Highlights

  • Visit two of the most impressive architectural masterworks from medieval Europe
  • Learn about the fascinating history of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, by touring its Old City

Overview

See Dubrovnik arrayed in all it’s historical splendor in this tour through the slender streets and along the menacing ramparts of this UNESCO World Heritage city.

Dubrovnik’s massively impressive city walls are a reminder of a less peaceful age, while its churches, bell towers, and palaces have all been beautifully protected from the ravages of time.

Tour the spectacular Dominican Monastery, originally built outside the city as a place for defense as well as devotion.

Walk through the Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary—a masterwork of stone adorned on the inside with priceless Venetian paintings—perhaps the most iconic sight in Dubrovnik.

Itinerary

To join this tour, please make your way to Pile Gate, by the fountain at the terminal.

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.

The tour ends at the beginning point.
