unforgettable experience of Dubrovnik's fascinating fortifications

Captivating City Walls tour consists of sightseeing of the Old Town of Dubrovnik together with visit to Dubrovnik's monumental medieval fortification system which is undoubtedly city's most famous and major highlight. During our tour you will learn more about the foundation of the city and its gradual development with emphasis on its marvelous defense system whose construction process encompasses time period of over 500 years. Along our walk you will enjoy the most amazing and inspiring view on the city so there will be plenty of opportunities for picture taking. This tour takes a little physical strain, but I believe it is definitely worth the effort, and I am confident that you will agree with me after you experience it yourself.


Tour starts at our meeting point, at the Pile gate, from where we will continue our walk to the entrance to the City Walls which is located at the beginning of the city's main street Stradun. Ofcourse, since the tour lasts 3 hours it depends on your wishes if you want to start the tour with the sightseeing of the city or with the visit to the city walls.

A Recent Review of this tour

Tonka was a fantastic tour guide for our private tours of the city walls. She has lived her whole life in and around Dubrovnik, so she knows the history very well, and it's clear that she's passionate about her country. She's also very easy going and willing to move at whatever pace you like. We ended our tour by having a glass of wine with her at a wine bar in one of the Old City's beautiful alleys. We HIGHLY recommend the tour and Tonka as your tour guide!
