What You Can Expect

Dubrovnik Combo: Cable Car Ride to Mount Srd and Old Town Tour

Admire incredible panoramas of Dubrovnik from the top of Mount Srd

Meet your guide at the base of Mt. Srđ at the cable car station and then hop into the car to ascend this 1,352-foot (412-meter) mountain. Watch the city get smaller as you ascend up the rocky mountain. Once at the top, take some time to drink in the incredible views: the medieval walled town of Dubrovnik, the vast Adriatic Sea, the islands that dot the horizon. Locals claim that on a clear day you can see as far as 37 miles (67 kilometers). 

After about an hour atop Mt Srđ, go down the way you went up: via the cable car. Once at the bottom, make the very short walk to Old Town, for Stari Grad, as locals call it, for the second portion of the tour: walking the streets of Old Town. 

Stroll through Pile Gate, one of three entrances that go through the 12th-century walls and stop at Onofrio’s Fountain, a large circular structure with faucets that was the terminus for the 7.5-mile (12-km) aqueduct that flowed drinking water into Dubrovnik. Then walk over to the nearby medieval Franciscan monastery, home to a recently restored Pieta sculpture and one of the oldest still-working pharmacies in Europe. 

Later amble down Stradun, the main pedestrian thoroughfare of the Old Town, and stop at the Renaissance-era Sponza Palace, today the home of the state archives. Within eyeshot, you’ll also visit Orlando’s Column, the Cathedral of the Assumption, and the Church of St Blaise, the city’s patron saint.

I would highly recommend this tour. We learnt a lot about Dubrovnik and its history. Our guide was very knowledgeable on the subject and was able to answer all of our questions. The cable car was not open the day we did it but we were given tickets that we could use at a later date.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

This was a very nice and inexpensive tour. The views from the top of Srd Mountain are worth every penny and it allows you to understand the geography of the old and current cities. We did this the morning of our first full day in the city and it was great to do to get a working understanding of the layout of the area and some quick historical backgrounds and some ideas of what we wanted to do the rest of our time in the city. Our guide was knowledgeable, spoke great English and was willing and excited to answer questions about the area. It was a really nice experience!
