What You Can Expect

Dubrovnik Shore Excursion: Explore Dubrovnik by Cable Car

Dubrovnik Shore Excursion: Explore Dubrovnik by Cable Car

Your Dubrovnik shore excursion starts as you leave the port and walk to the cable car station, where your panoramic ride begins. From the top of Mount Srd, you'll have a spectacular view over Dubrovnik and the Dalmatian area. If it's a clear day, you can see up to 37 miles (60 km) – you’ll have great photo opportunities!

When you come back down, you’ll go on a walking tour through Old Town, where your local guide will show you the city’s finest sights. Stroll around the narrow streets and soak up the history and culture of this magnificent walled city. The tour starts at the Pile Gate, where you'll see the circular Onofrio's Fountain, connected by aqueduct to a spring 7.5 miles (12 km) from town. Then see the Franciscan Monastery, containing a restored sculpture of the Pieta and a gorgeous cloister dating back to the 14th century.

Continue walking to Sponza Palace, a Renaissance palace that now houses the State Archives. Other highlights on this tour include Orlando’s Column, the City Bell Tower, the Rector’s Palace and the Church of St Blaise, the city’s patron saint. Continue across the main square, where you will visit Dubrovnik's Cathedral of the Assumption, a Baroque church built in the 18th century after an earthquake destroyed the original one.

This tour was excellent. Our guide Nicholas was great - he showed us a lot of interesting places and gave us a lot of historical details without the information overload.

One word FANTASTIC, our guide was very knowledgable, she was very kind and concerned with some of the older persons in the group, making sure they were ok. The tour of the old city was very enjoyable, as she made various stop explaining the sights. She made us want to comeback to Dubrovnick.

Tour guide was great!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Great tour- we ended up with 6 of us doing the whole tour. The walk to the cable car was steep and one couple did not walk to the cable car. When the cable car ride was over, more people left the group.The tour guide was very knowledgeable, kept a good pace and suggested to the remaining 6 of us an amazing place to eat lunch. She even took a picture of our group with her own phone, the 1st time that has even happened to any tour that I have been on. So much nicer than the cruise's large group tours.
