Discover the centuries old corridors of Dubrovnik city walls


Explore the hidden parts of the city walls of Dubrovnik on this private tour of the western bulwark, the fort Minčeta and the 16th century gun foundry. Learn how the cannons were made, roam the underground tunnels and admire the city walls of Dubrovnik from a totally different perspective. This tour is for the discerning traveler wishing to experience more than the usual touristy things.

We'll talk about medieval warfare, attacks and sieges and how Dubrovnik managed to survive as a tiny city-state surrounded by powerful enemies. You'll walk along the newly opened western ramparts and hear stories about the golden age of Dubrovnik in the 16th century as well as the more recent history.

Itinerary

Your private tour begins in the cruise port from where we'll drive to the Old town and stop by the northern gate. We'll proceed towards the massive fort Minčeta, built in the 15th century, and walk the underground tunnels. Afterwards, we'll continue down the western bulwark to visit the Gornji ugao tower with the museum of the old gun foundry. Here you'll learn how they made cannons back in the 16th century. All along our walk we'll talk about the old Dubrovnik Republic and how we combined diplomacy and the strong city walls to stay alive. The tour ends near Pile gate, the main entrance to the Old town.
