What You Can Expect
Meet your guide in Pile Square, and then hop inside for your ride to the top of Mt Srd, the 1,352-foot (412-meter) mountain that towers over the city. After roughly three minutes inside the cable car, arrive at the summit and gaze out at the vista of Dubrovnik and the Dalmatian Coast sprawled out at your feet. Have your camera ready; many say that on a clear day, you can see sights up to 37 miles (67km) away.
After admiring the views at Mt Srd’s peak for 20 minute with your guide and learning about the sights, return to Dubrovnik by cable car.
Dubrovnik Old Town and City Walls Tour (3.5 hours):
Meet your guide at Pile Square, and then set off on your walking tour of the Old Town. Home to most of the city’s finest attractions, the neighborhood boasts culture and history in plentiful measures. See the circular Onofrio's Fountain with its huge central dome, and amble past the Franciscan monastery, where a copy of Michelangelo’s La Pietà sculpture is housed.
Continue walking to Sponza Palace, an attractive building that’s widely considered the Dubrovnik’s Renaissance crown. Housing Croatia’s extensive state archives, Sponza Palace was once Dubrovnik’s most opulent palatial building. Other highlights on your walking tour include Orlando's Column, the city bell tower, Rector’s Palace and the Church of St Blaise, a pretty place of worship dedicated to the city’s patron saint.
Walk across the main square to see the Baroque Cathedral of the Assumption, which was rebuilt in the 18th century after an earthquake, and then wander over to Dubrovnik’s city walls — a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Walk with your guide along the walls while learning about their history. Parts of the walls date back to the 13th century when the city began to gain prominence as one of the most important sea powers in the Mediterranean. Look out for Minčeta Tower, St John’s Fortress, Fort Bokar plus Dubrovnik Aquarium and Maritime Museum.
After walking the length of the city walls, stroll back to the start point at Pile Square where your tour finishes.
We did the Cable Car Ride (what a view!!!), the Old Town Walking Tour, and the City Walls Walking Tour. Our tour guide, Lidija, was absolutely wonderful! The meeting point for our tour was the fountain in the square just outside of the city walls, but a few people were mistakenly at a fountain inside the city walls. Lidija delayed the start a few minutes to ensure these missing people were located and brought to the correct meeting point. I wish all guides could be so patient and accommodating. Lidija was born and raised in Dubrovnik. In addition to the many historic sites in the city, she also pointed out where she was born and where she was married. She also had personal experience as a child during the war and explained the role Bill Clinton played in helping to end the aggression (they love him!). We had 16-18 people on the cable car portion of the tour; 10 people during the old town walking tour; and 6 people on the walk the walls tour (great views of the city!). There are 950 stairs on the wall the walls portion, but it’s broken up over many areas so it’s quite doable. I would definitely recommend all three portions of this tour!
Tour guide was very informative.
