Croatia is one of Europe’s most ancient states. In the 6th century the eponymous chieftain of the Croats, Chrovatos, migrated to the old Roman province of Illyricum, just south of the Danube. His followers managed to dwell separately from the prodigious Byzantine Empire for hundreds of years. Then in AD 924, King Tomaslave created an independent Roman Catholic realm. The walled city of Dubrovnik was a jewel in the king’s crown. Voyager Club members will revel in the beauty of this gem on the Adriatic’s Dalmatian Coast.

Our day begins with a drive to the Old town where we will begin our walking tour. Stroll with our guide down Stadun, the main street, with a stop at the Franciscan Monastery, whose cloister ranks among the most inspiring sites of the city. The construction of the Franciscan Monastery started in 1317 and was completed in the following century. In 1667 it was destroyed in a earthquake. Only the Gothic south entrance with the Pieta, a marble pulpit and the magnificent Romanesque-Gothic cloister with the fountain from the 15th century survived the earthquake undamaged. The Old Pharmacy, located inside the monastery, was opened in 1317. It is the third oldest pharmacy in Europe, and the only one of those still in use. The monastery’s museum is located in the former capital and features the inventory of the Old Pharmacy (pottery, lab gear, old medical books, recipes) and other highly valued and priceless objects of Dubrovnik's historic and cultural past like relics, and a library with 30,000 volumes and handwritten documents.

We will then visit the Rector's Palace which was built in the 15th century as seat of government. For centuries it was the political and administrative center of the Republic of Ragusa. The palace is now a museum with furnished rooms, Baroque paintings and historical exhibits.

Next we visit the Dubrovnik Cathedral, or the Church of the Assumption. It is actually the third church built on the site. The first, a Byzantine-style building, was constructed in the 6th and 7th centuries, before a Romanesque church replaced it in the 12th century. Aside from the architecture, the artwork is of particular note, which includes Titian's The Assumption at the main altar. The fantastic views will inspire you to take some photographs, and the sights that you will capture will continue to amaze you over and over again.

We then continue to Proto restaurant renowned for its fish specialties prepared accordingly to the old recipes of the Dubrovnik fisherman, for our wonderful luncheon. We’ll enjoy delicious Croatian specialties complimented by local wines.

Following lunch, we will return the pier.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual with comfortable walking shoes. There will be moderate walking with some steps on uneven surfaces. The city walls of Dubrovnik can be a little strenuous for older guests due to many steps and uneven surfaces.
