Oasis of natural treasures (Dubrovnik area)
Pelješac is known of its unspoiled nature, unpolluted crystal clear blue sea, picturesque landscapes, biodiversity and of course its vineyards. Some of the most famous are at the steep slops of Dingač area, home of Plavac mali grape.
Aside from being known as the great Croatian wine region and having a large number of wineries and wine tasting establishments, this peninsula has been also well known for its mussels and oysters since the Roman times. Most famous oysters farms are coming from Ston area which is named after a medieval town of Ston which has the longest preserved stone wall in Europe(5. 5 kilometers). This town is also known for its ancient salt works which are still in operation. Since the production has not changed through the centuries it guarantees an excellent salt quality.
Wines, oysters, olives oil, sea salt, natural beauties, historical heritage. . . What more is there to say?Well, I can only invite you to experience Pelješac with all of your senses. . .
After the pick up at the preferred location in Dubrovnik, we are going to drive through the Trsteno village with the oldest arboretum in Europe, from where we will pass through small villages of Primorje area, well known for its olives and olive oil. We will make several panoramic stops above Elaphiti islands and Slano bay and then continue towards to the medieval city of Ston.
Once we get to Ston we will have a walking tour around town. After enjoying Ston's medieval arhitecture we can either pay an optional visit to Ston salt works or sample some of the local oysters before we continue our drive through the vineyards and beautiful landscapes of Pelješac peninsula. If you wish to sample some of the local wines this drive is a great opportunity. We will drive through the steep slops of Dingač, most popular wine area on Pelješac, overlooking at the national park of Mljet island and islands of Korčula and Lastovo.
Driving back to Ston for a lunch break, goes above hidden beaches.
