Full description
Discover the famous city walls of Dubrovnik, a beautiful reminder of distant medieval times. The city has preserved its city walls despite changing trends that once suggested any types of fortifications are obsolete and redundant. Dubrovnik is among a small few well-preserved medieval cities with 2 kilometer walls surrounding the town allowing for many breathtaking views. Admire the terracotta roofs and narrow streets from above. In addition, enjoy the clear vista over the Adriatic sea, revealing just about any boat on the horizon. This view explains why the city was successfully defended for centuries and since 1979, Dubrovnik is UNESCO protected. The town survived many wars, including the recent Homeland War from 1991-1995, but Dubrovnik was renewed in a manner that the damage is not visible. Discover why the city of Dubrovnik has inspired artists, writers and photographers as you explore the ancient Mediterranean city and wander along the elegant walls.

Our guide, Desa was really nice and we enjoyed our tour of the city walls with her. We learned a lot of things about the history of Dubrovnik, local stories and she also told us about the filming locations of GOT ( for us it was enough and we did not book another tour for that). She also recommended us things to do and places to eat so do not hesitate to ask for tips. The tour was worth its money as its a great way to find out the short history of the town and its close surroundings.

She was excellent and knowing the history of the wall made all the difference. However I have to say I think Dubrovnik hast lost its soul and hardly any Croatians live in the city. Everything has been converted to airbnbs. Sad but I would not return nor recommend coming to anyone.

Best Dubrovnik History Tour!

I sincerely enjoyed this tour with Desa. She is a professional tour guide and is a local in Dubrovnik. She will give you an in-depth understanding of Dubrovnik's storied past, present and future. If you're nice, she'll even give you tips about good restaurants to try. :D If you're a traveler who loves history and understanding the places and people they visit this is a tour you must do! Your walk of the fortification system of Dubrovnik will be much, much more than amazing views. :D
