This morning meet your local guide for a private walking tour of Dubrovnik, one of the most beautiful stone-built cities in the world.
An important maritime port and a one-time state, it has always been a cultural metropolis. As one of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Dubrovnik owes its special charm to the historic monuments that testify to its rich history. The works of artists, writers and scientists of Dubrovnik have been woven into the texture of the town. While strolling with your guide down Stradun, the main street, you will stop to visit the Franciscan monastery of the “Order of Friars Minors” that preserves one of the three oldest pharmacies in Europe. You will continue down to Orlando Column and the Sponza Palace and visit the Church of St. Blasius, the patron saint of the town. You will also discover Rector’s Palace, the magnificent structure of the dukes of Dubrovnik, and the Cathedral of the Virgin Mary with a treasury containing the originals by Tiziano and Rafaelo and many other valuable relicts.
The rest of the afternoon is at your leisure to explore this stunning town on your own. Dubrovnik is full of charming cafes, boutiques and local curiosities, nestled in the intricate network of the cobblestone streets. We recommend you to take a walk along the city walls (2500 m around the old town), visit one of the numerous museums or take a funicular ride to the top of the Srđ hill.
