Dubrovnik Ancient City Walls Historical Walking Tour

Dubrovnik Ancient City Walls Historical Walking Tour

Learn what makes Dubrovnik so special by booking this informative walking tour. Meet your guide just outside Pile Gate. Lead by a knowledgeable local guide, the tour takes in the limestone-paved streets of the city’s Stari Grad (Old Town), and uncovers the real story behind the city’s churches, monasteries and palaces. Walk the 1.2-mile (2-km) walls (entrance fee not included), which were first built in the 12th century, and get a different viewpoint of the city, as the shimmering Adriatic Sea dazzles you from a distance.

As you stroll, get an insider’s view of the history of Dubrovnik, from the 11th century when a sea channel, in what is now Stari Grad, was filled in. Learn also about the landmarks Fort Revelin and Minceta Tower. In the distance, you’ll see Fort Lovrijenac, the only fort that belongs to the city walls but is physically separated from them.

Listen to your guide regale stories from the city’s long and rich history, about how it was an autonomous republic buttressing both the Ottoman and the Venetian Empires. Your tour then finishes near the port.

Despite the rain, our tour guide made it a fantastic, informative experience. We actually missed the city wall tour, but the tour company was very accommodating and allowed us to go on the city tour instead. The information the guide provided really added to the experience. There are all sorts of stories behind various buildings and walkways.

Definitely worth doing. You can walk it on your own but you don't know what you're looking at. Our tour guide Marco was great. Very passionate as he still lives in the walls. Tells you a lot about the walls and each fortifications but also was alive during the Yugoslavian war. Learned a lot. One of the highlights of the trip.

A really fantastic tour - we loved it! This was our favourite tour in Dubrovnik we also did the Old Town Walking Tour - but this was the best as the views from the city walls were amazing, and our guide Heini was very engaging and interested. Plenty of time to take wonderful photos, and yes there were stairs but they were very manageable and we were not rushed. Would not hesitate to recommend this tour!

Excellent tour, very friendly guide. Learnt so much more than just wandering the walls on my own.

I had a great time on the tour. Even though my friend and I ran a little late the guide waited for us and then continued on. He knew the history of Dubrovnik and of Croatia so well it really made the tour of the wall more enjoyable. Anyone coming to Dubrovnik should definitely have a historical tour of the wall. It is fascinating.
