Delve into the rich history of Dubrovnik on this complete guided tour of the Old Town, listed a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1979, with an expert English speaking guide.
Greet your guide near the Pile Gates, in the heart of Dubrovnik, built as a fortification complex when the city was part of the Republic of Ragusa. The Republic was one of the main rivals of Venice, especially during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. From here, follow your professional guide on a one-and-a-half hour walking tour of the city’s historic center and admire its most important landmarks while you learn about the fascinating past of this charming seaport.
Your first stop will be at the Franciscan Monastery, a building that dates back to the fourteenth century, although it has undergone several reforms since the devastating earthquake of 1667. Located inside the monastery is a pharmacy managed by the Franciscan monks and opened 700 years ago. In front of the Monastery, you can cool down at the Large Onofrio’s Fountain. Afterwards, wander down Stradun, also known as Placa, Dubrovnik’s main thoroughfare that runs through the Old Town.
When you get to Luža Square, home to the Sponza Palace, you will admire Orlando’s Column, symbol of the independence of Ragusa. Then, you will walk past the Small Onofrio’s Fountain before you get to the Rector's Palace, seat of the Rectory of the Republic of Ragusa. Currently, this Gothic-style building houses the Museum of Contemporary History of Dubrovnik.
The guided tour will come to an end in the alleyways adjacent to the Cathedral, set of numerous scenes from the world-famous “Game of Throne”. During the walking tour of Dubrovnik, you will have discovered over 1400 years of history.
