What You Can Expect
In the 11th century, the sea channel separating the city from mainland was covered up with earth, so a single wall was built to enclose the present-day Old Town. The city walls have been restored several times in history to resemble their original appearance. With your guide, see Fort Revelin and Minceta Tower within the city walls (entrance fees not included), and learn the strategic position of these forts and their role in Dubrovnik's history. You will also see Fort Lovrijenac in the distance, the only fort that belongs to the city walls but it's physically separated from them, and which you may visit after the tour.
As you wander around Dubrovnik's ancient walls, your guide will explain the defensive and political challenges faced by Dubrovnik in the past. Hear stories of the rivalry and conquest Dubrovnik has faced and learn the secrets of how the country used defensive fortifications and diplomacy to remain an independent republic for several years, before ending your tour near the port.
There were only 4 on the tour, so it was like a private tour. We are in our 50's and the other couple much younger. Our guide Marko paced the walk so the we were never left behind. It was obvious that he loves Dubrovnik....His stories were entertaining and very informative. We were concerned how we would cope with the walk, but there were plenty of stops along with stories, and we managed very easily. Many thanks Marko.....great tour.
If there is one place you should visit in Dubrovnik, it should be this. Our guide was amazing as well.
