Dubrovnik is known for its history and architecture, but appreciating its many sights can be difficult on a self-led tour. Forget the guidebook and learn from a local on a tour of Dubrovnik’s Old Town, exploring landmarks including the Franciscan Monastery, Stradun monument, Cathedral of the Assumption, and more. Enjoy the intimate perspective of a walking tour as you gain insight into the city’s far-reaching heritage and culture.

What to Expect
Dubrovnik never fails to awe the visitor; its streets paved with white limestone, its walls crowning the city, and its medieval sandstone-colored houses oozing with history.
This 1.5-hour guided walking tour takes you deep into the city’s 1,400-year history, recalling ancient tales when Dubrovnik was one of the world’s most prosperous port cites. It tells tales of war and lets the tour-goer in on the culture of the city.
After meeting at Pile Gate, begin the journey through history and through Old Town. Pass the Franciscan Monastery and admire Orlando’s Column, a monument on the Stradun inspired by the city’s long-standing freedom and sovereignty. See, too, Onofrio’s Fountain, built in 1438 at the end of a 8-mile (12-km) aqueduct that gave the city its water supply.
The walk also stops at the Rector’s Palace, Sponza Palace and the Cathedral of the Assumption, a baroque church built after the devastating earthquake of 1667.

A walk round the wall is a must

Very Very Busy. Try to go and visit in the morning if possible. Little option for a drink in most places as they want to provide a lunch. Need a hat if going pm as gets very hot on the wall walk.

Hi, we didn't have a private guide in Dubrovnik but we did in Split. I would just email the company directly and tell them you'd like to arrange a private tour. I am guessing they would be happy to arrange that for your.

It covers the perimeter of the old city and just outside it so around one km by one km I would say. You should also walk on top of the city walls separately. That’s beautiful too around sunset time.
