Walls of Dubrovnik - Guided Walking Tour & Free Exploration

Walls of Dubrovnik - Guided Walking Tour & Free Exploration

We're proud to offer a unique and different take on the usual concept of a guided walking tour - we invite you to join our knowledgeable local guide for a one-part guided walking tour along the northern stretch of the city walls of Dubrovnik, where you'll hear about the history of the walls, learn how and when they were built, who the enemies of Dubrovnik were and much more, and then continue to discover the southern half of the walls on your own! We've carefully listened to our guests' pain points and have come up with the ideal hybrid combo where you'll experience the walls both in a small-group setting and at your own pace, giving you plenty of time and freedom to stop for photos, refreshments or simply to admire the stunning architecture and amazing views, without the pressure of being in a group. Our tour begins at Ploče gate, from where we'll climb up to the walls at the eastern entrance, which has less stairs and fewer people than the main entrance. The guided walk along the northern stretch features nine stops, each carefully planned and designed to provide you with an insight into Dubrovnik's rich history, both ancient as well as modern. We'll talk about the major fortifications, you'll hear about medieval warfare, cannons, smart diplomacy of the old Dubrovnik and how it survived as an independent city-state between the historic political giants such as Venice and the Ottoman Empire. We'll also cover the most recent war in Croatia and the attacks on Dubrovnik in 1991. You will also learn about the everyday life inside the Old town and how many people actually live within the walls today.
