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.

Our guide was wonderful, very knowledgable and patient with the group as we stopped for amazing photo ops.
This tour offers a part of the Old City every visitor should experience. I enjoyed the late afternoon time since the sky was particularly beautiful.

This tour provided breathtaking views of the city and surrounding area. The 5:30 tour was great as we were able to get views of the city as the sun set.

Excellent tour a must do in Dubrovnik. Suggest you take the morning tour as it is less crowded on the wall early and also cooler. Our guide Jadlanka was very knowledgable and made the tour very interesting.

Had the pleasure of Kresimir as my guide - a very knowledgable and entertaining personality - and passionate and proud about his country and city. Officially a 2-hour walk it extended to almost 3 hours and indeed, had he benn able, it could have extended to more - a wealth of tales also personal of the history, past and present. Can only recommend one takes a guided tour rather than just walking the walls wothout - an opportunity to gain an insight into what lies within beyond merely the breath-taking views outside.
