You will be astonished by each corner of this legendary city and its unique stories, that our guide will present to you. Old Town Dubrovnik is jewelled with Renaissance churches, fountains, and cobblestone streets. The scenic route along rugged coastline with amazing panoramic views of Dalmatian islands will take us to Dubrovnik, the most visited and most popular tourist destination, a unique Renaissance city on the Mediterranean, with its well preserved walls built between the 13th and 17th century.
This memorable excursion through Croatia's most famous medieval city begins at the monumental western entrance, Pile Gate, located at the top of Stradun. Stradun stretches through the walled town in the east-west direction, connecting the Pile Gate to the Ploče Gate on the eastern end. Both ends are also marked with 15th-century Onofrio's Fountains and bell towers, the Dubrovnik Bell Tower on the east, and the bell tower attached to the Franciscann monastery on the west, one of the most magnificent sites in the city. Within the monastery, operates a pharmacy opened from 1317., the third oldest in Europe.
We will continue to Sponza Palace. The palace courtyard, entirely in arcades, was the vivacious trading centre and meeting place for business people of the Republic Ragusa. Today the Sponza Palace, peaceful and dignified, guards the most precious historical documentation of Dubrovnik. Our tour ends with a visit to the Cathedral which was built on the ruins of a 12th century church, destroyed by the great earthquake of 1667. The interior of the cathedral is magnificent.
Above the main altar is the image of the "Assumption of Mary" from the 16th century, signed by the famous Italian painter Titian. Unique altar of St. John of Nepomuk is made of blue marble.
Having experienced the most important parts of the Old Town, you will have free 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 sea.
