"2 in 1" Combo Tour


On this 3 hour walking tour you get the best of Dubrovnik. First you enjoy the city from a bird's eye view on our tour on the city walls, one of Europe's most beautiful defensive wall systems. Two kilometers long, up to 25 meters high this medieval monument is offering stunning views on Old Town's skyline and Adriatic's horizon. This is the perfect place to introduce you to the city. The founding, the uprise, the downfall, earthquakes and wars are only a few among other chapters of a unique and engrossing history.

After the tour of the city walls we go back down to stroll the streets of Old Town. While we pass by beautiful landmarks and turn into the narrow side alleys we take a closer look at recent history and todays situation. At the end of the tour not many questions should be left open but time to give you tipps for the rest of your stay in Dubrovnik.

Itinerary

We meet in front of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, next to the bus station at Pile Square. After introducing ourselves we enter the city through the western gate towards the entrance of the city walls. Here you buy your tickets in case you haven't done it earlier. Then we go up the city wall. First we do the southern part towards the Adriatic Sea and then the northern part towards the Dinaric Alps. It is a 2 hour walk, moderate as there are some staircases on the way. After the city walls we continue our tour inside of Old Town. Depending on your interests we walk the main street first and then explore some side alleys past several historic landmarks. The tour ends inside Old Town, always somewhere close to the main street.
