Overview of your Dubrovnik tour:

This tour is designed for clients that have already visited the Old Town of Dubrovnik and would like to learn more about the life and leisure of the aristocrats that used to govern the Dubrovnik Republic as well as to find out where was the main source of the Republic's power and prosperity produced and how was it protected. Our first stop will be the Arboretum of Trsteno, a 500-year-old former aristocratic estate which houses more than 450 species of diverse plant life, making it the biggest and the oldest monument of garden architecture in Croatia. After that, the tour takes us to the Peljesac peninsula, a strategically important piece of territory that the Dubrovnik Republic acquired in the 14th century. The vicinity of a valuable natural resource, the ancient salt pans, has made the Republic establish the two towns of Ston and Mali Ston. The towns were connected and encompassed by a massive 5. 5-km-long wall in order to protect them from treacherous Venetian obstructions and the invading Ottoman army.

Your Dubrovnik tour itinerary

Here's the proposed itinerary (with possible options) - pick up at the desired location in Dubrovnik - drive to the Trsteno Arboretum, tour around the exotic gardens of the Arboretum - drive along the panoramic road above Dubrovnik hinterland (dating back to Napoleonic times!) - optional break for oyster tasting. Although Ston is widely known for its monumental long walls and ecological salt production, the gourmet crowd usually prefers it for two reasons: wine and shellfish. The Peljesac peninsula is home to some of the finest Croatian red wines and you can find a wide variety of high-quality shellfish, out of which the Ston oysters have the reputation of being the best in Croatia. - arrival to Mali Ston, smaller of two towns, tour around town with optional coffee break - arrival to Ston (either by crossing over the monumental wall that connects the two cities or by car - whatever you prefer) - tour around the town, optional lunch break - optional wine taste
