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.

Was a great walk and very informational. Views were amazing. Somewhat long - so be ready to walk! We loved that the local guide lived within the city walls and everything was very personal/real.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

I was initially dubious about a walking tour it sounded like something my Granny would do but this was the best 2.5 hours we spent in Dubrovnik. Our tour guide was entertaining, knowledgeable and provided just the amount of detail to keep us engage throughout. He truly brought the fascinating and tumultuous history of Dubrovnik alive for us. I would highly recommend this tour as the first activity you undertake in Dubrovnik as it really sets the stage for the remainder of the visit.
