What You Can Expect

Dubrovnik Shore Excursion: Best of Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik Shore Excursion: Best of Dubrovnik

This is a shore excursion that should not be missed. Begin at Pile Gate where you’ll learn that it’s one of three entry points into the city through the walls, which were first constructed first in the 12th century but with several modifications through the years. 

The first stop on the tour is Onofrio’s Fountain, a large circular structure that is the terminus for a 7.5-mile (12-km) aqueduct. Have a drink of the fresh water from the many faucets on the tank and then walk over to have a look at the Franciscan Monastery, with its beautiful Gothic courtyard, among many other great works of art inside. 

Continue walking down the Stradun, one of the widest and certainly the most fashionable streets in town, until you reach the Renaissance-era Sponza Palace. Learn the history of this stunning building and then walk on to see and learn about Orlando’s Column, the City Bell Tower, the Rector’s Palace and the Church of St Blaise, named for 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.

We really enjoyed this tour. The guided portion of the tour was great with a lot of great information. We appreciated that at the start of the free time the guide let us know that if we didn't want to go back to the ship right away we didn't have to. We really wanted to walk the walls and this worked out perfectly for us since we ended right at the entrance. This was a great alternative to the busy ship excursions offered.

Tour was fantastic, Guide named Elvis was very good.
But directions to find tour meeting once off the ship needs to be explained better. We weren't the only ones eight other people had the same trouble. Lucky we were able to find where we had to go as it was very good. Loved seeing Dubrovnik. Worth booking with you and cost worth it.

Tour guide was delightful. She was very knowledgeable and took time to make sure we were with her all the way. The tour office was very hard to find name on the instructions not the same as did the tour.

This was a great tour. The weather was shocking but Ivana persevered and gave us a great account of all the Dubrovnik happenings in the recent years.
She displayed a passion for her country that touched us all.

I wish I had written down the name of the excellent tour guide we had because she was outstanding. She and our driver were at the exit of the ship area with a sign waiting for us at exactly the right time. We then had a drive around Dubrovnik to see various areas and on to the Old Walled City area. As great numbers of tourists in other groups wandered around this tourist-packed area, my husband and I were so lucky to be her only tour people that day. She explained the history in an interesting way and even took us down alleyways with old graffiti written hundreds of years ago. She always tried to keep us away from the massive crowds and out of the sun. She knew interesting details about the area and we could tell that she enjoyed her job. I would highly recommend her and I'd like it if you would publish her name with this review so that others might request her. I want to also give credit to our excellent driver.
