Tour Details

This walking tour through the Old Town of Dubrovnik is a great way to see the city's splendid combination of ancient and modern architecture. While on your visit to Dubrovnik, learn about the history of this fortified city and how its successes in trade and shipping have shaped it today.

Your Dubrovnik Old Town tour begins at Pile Gate, the gated entrance to this ancient city. Cross the wooden drawbridge that was once pulled up each night in order to protect the city. Upon entrance into the walled city, see Onofrio's Fountain. During the Middle Ages, this fountain provided fresh water from the Dubrovnik River through an aqueduct system. Next on your walking tour of Old Town, see the imposing Baroque architectural features of The Franciscan Monastery. This Monastery also features a garden, museum, and the famous Old Pharmacy. Still in operation after 700 years, The Old Pharmacy is one of the oldest working pharmacies in Europe, and visitor's can peruse the jars, ointments, and poisons that date back to the 15th century.

Your walking tour of Dubrovnik's Old Town continues with a walk up and down both sides of the famous main street, the Stradun. A walk along the Stradun will show you a few of Dubrovnik's Renaissance buildings that survived the earthquake of 1667, and will give you an idea of the city's architectural heritage. Perhaps the finest Renaissance highlight is the Sponza Palace, which dates from the 16th century and is now home to the National Archives. The Rector's Palace is a Gothic-Renaissance structure from the 15th century when it was the seat of the Government and Rector of the Republic. It has finely-carved capitals and ornate decoration, which gives us a glimpse into how the ruling class lived. The St. Saviour Church is another glorious remnant of the Renaissance period.

Spend the morning walking Dubrovnik's Old Town, become acquainted with the city's best attractions including Onofrio's Fountain, the Franciscan Monastery and Old Pharmacy, and more. Get a glimpse of life living inside the famous walled city. The afternoon is yours to explore more of this medieval city on your own.

Please Note: This tour concludes on the main street, Stradun.
