TRIVIA: The main street in the Old City was built on a swamp. By pouring sand and rocks in it sometime in the 9th century, the people of Dubrovnik created the longest street (about 300 meters / 1,000 feet) in the Old City, the Stradun, thus laying the foundations of the future city.

Tour description

Our Dubrovnik City Tour is the ultimate tour for all visitors of our hometown. We will show you all the main city sights and explore the architecture, both ancient and modern. However, we have something that we need to confess: we have done this tour many times, but we still get goosebumps while looking at all those monuments and realizing what our ancestors have accomplished, leaving it all for us to inherit.

“MUST-SEE” SIGHTS

It is best to start at the Pile Gate, near the viewpoint that offers impressive views of the two forts, Lovrjenac and Bokar. Strolling slowly, we will enter the Old City, where we will sightsee the Great Onofrio’s Fountain, and St. Savior’s Church, and then pay a visit to the grandiose Franciscan Monastery, which houses a pharmacy dating back to 1317. After that, we will climb the stairs to reach Prijeko Street, and as we walk towards the Dominican Monastery, we will tell you some interesting facts about the local food and wine production, and share a few traditional recipes for tasty dishes that are still in use today.

We will then continue our Dubrovnik City Tour in the direction of the Old Port – the key to Dubrovnik’s trading and maritime success. You will hear stories about the quarantine and the nearby St. John’s Fort. We will also visit the heart of the city, Stradun (also known as Placa), with Luža Square and St. Blaise’s Church, the Cathedral, Rector’s Palace, Sponza Palace, and the Orlando’s Column.

MEDITERRANEAN SCENTS AND FLAVORS

And now, the hidden treasures part of the tour! In order to truly experience a city, one must mingle with the locals. That is why we will take you to the farmers’ market, where local merchants offer fresh, locally-grown fruit, vegetables, cheese, home-made brandy and olive oil. Here, you will have the opportunity to savor the Mediterranean scents and flavors, combined with timeless trading customs.

Our next stop will be one of the greatest examples of baroque architecture in the city – the Church of St. Ignatius and the famous Jesuit staircase. A walk through the intricate, narrow streets of the southern quarter will take us deep into the oldest part of the city. These streets have produced some of Dubrovnik’s most prominent poets, composers, scientists and statesmen.

Now, doesn’t all this make our Dubrovnik city tour worthwhile? We sure hope so!
