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.

I really enjoyed the walking tour, the man so sorry i am no good at remembering names was a very nice, friendly and cheerful. More importantly he was very knowledgeable about the history of the walls and his city and you could see he was passionate and proud of his heritage. I highly recommend this trip, fantastic views and as we were a small group from different countries we all got along and had a laugh along the way!

This walking tour with Marko as our guide was the absolute highlight of our visit to Dubrovnik and of our 7-day Adriatic trip as a whole. His English was excellent and he was very knowledgeable about the history of the city. We were particularly interested in more recent history 1990s and he spoke with passion about the war during the early part of that decade. The city is an amazing place due to the fortifications combined with interesting architecture within the old town i.e. the city walls. We had a very good reasonably priced meal at a restaurant in the old town where the waiters were very friendly.

Fantastic tour, ended up lasting 3 hours because the guide was obviously very interested in the subject and in the fall of Yugoslavia.

This was an amazing tour, definitely highly recommend our tour guide! He has an amazing wealth of knowledge about the ancient and modern history of Dubrovnik and did a great job of trying in his personal experiences to better illustrate everyday life for folks living in the area as well. I've taken quite a few walking tours in various cities and this was by far one of the best!
