This afternoon, when the majority of crowds are gone from the city centre, you will meet your local guide for a private walking tour of Dubrovnik. Called the Pearl of the Adriatic, it is truly one of the most beautiful walled cities in the world.
An important maritime port and a one-time state, Dubrovnik has always been a cultural metropolis. As one of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Dubrovnik owes its special charm to the historic monuments, which testify to its rich history. The works of artists, writers and scientists of Dubrovnik have been woven into the texture of the town.
The intricate network of cobblestone streets hides more than a thousand-year history. While strolling with your guide down Stradun, the main street, you will come across numerous famous landmarks that make it an open-air museum. You will admire monumental edifices of both sacral and profane purpose, such as the Rector’s Palace, honouring the dukes of Dubrovnik and Church of St. Blasius, patron saint of the town. After this feast for the eyes you will treat you taste buds too. In the historic 15th century palace, holding a charming boutique hotel and a wine bar, you will enjoy a wine tasting followed by a light snack of fresh Dalmatian specialties.
