This tour will start with pick up at your accommodation and a 30 minute drive to Trsteno Arboretum. During a 45 min visit you will see why the founder of garden chose this place for escape from the city. When we leave the garden we will have 20min drive to village Majkovi where you will taste some of the best domestic products: homemade cheese, local olives, delicious dried meat, freshly baked bread, domestic honey made by your hosts, and a wide variety of homemade liquor and Croatian wine. You will visit a traditional „Kuća meda“, to learn how the honey is produced and if you absolutely love it you can purchase a jar to take home.
Continuing along the elevated Napoleonic road you will enjoy a majestic view of the Elaphiti islands as we descend into Ston, on Pelješac peninsula. Ston was one of the first urban planned towns in Europe. It is home to the oldest working salt factory in Europe, the second largest stone wall in Europe (called the “Great Wall of Ston”) and some of the tastiest oysters in the Adriatic. During your walk through the town you will visit town's treasury. Few brave tourists are interested in walking the walls, which span 5.5 kilometers on steep hillside, but if you prefer to take a swim, drink a coffee, or sample fresh oysters, your guide will be happy to direct you. On the way back to Dubrovnik, you will make another stop at Majkovi for an extravagant homemade meal in the traditional Croatian style called “ispod Peke”. Your hosts in Majkovi will begin preparing it for you in the morning; fresh goat cheese, vegetables from the garden and homemade dressing for salad, young goat or lamb selected for the occasion and slow cooked all day under a large iron bell, or Peka. Seafood menu includes octopus or grilled fish. There can be no better way to finish the day than enjoying a meal which is better than you could get in any restaurant in town.
