Starting with a walking tour of Dubrovnik Old Town and ending with a stroll around its City Walls, this guided visit of Dubrovnik leaves no stone unturned.
The medieval walled town of Dubrovnik was built to be shut down for an extended period of time in case of an attack or an epidemic. In order to survive if the need arose, very early on Dubrovnik had a sewer, running water, a pharmacy, granary and other epitomes of advanced civilizations. After meeting your guide at Pile gate, you will explore this UNESCO World heritage site before climbing the city walls. An unparalleled vantage point, the walls deliver a unique perspective onto the treasures so worth protecting.
“.... those who seek paradise on Earth
should come to Dubrovnik”
(George Bernard Shaw)
Let our guided city tour of Dubrovnik Old Town weave the story of its history and its present into the splendid fabric of fine architecture and magnificent city walls. Starting from Pile square on the eastern side of Dubrovnik Old Town, embark on a walking tour through the maze of narrow streets, lively piazzas, and stunning palaces like Sponza and churches like St. Blaise. Enjoy the moderate tempo of your walk as you stroll down the main thoroughfare of Stradun, all the way to the Cathedral and the Rector’s Palace, where you will discover a fine synergy between governance and faith which kept Dubrovnik afloat as the independent Republic of Ragusa for 450 years.
‘The Winter is Coming’, so perhaps best use the warm days to explore the capital of Westeros, the King’s Landing.
In its real-life, the Game of Thrones King’s Landing is known as Dubrovnik Old Town. Its stone streets, medieval towers and busy squares were the set for several seasons of the HBO’s mega popular TV show. As you wander around with a die-hard-fan of a guide, spot famous locations in their everyday attire, such as the Walk of Shame stairs, the Littlefinger’s brothel, Red Keep at fort of St. Lawrence, the tower of the Undying among the City Walls. The GOT producers dubbed Dubrovnik as “completely out of a George Martin novel” and this walking tour of Dubrovnik will vividly illustrate what made them think so.
