This morning, your guide and driver will meet you on the pier and take you to the Old Town for a walking tour of the historic center of Dubrovnik. As you descend down the stone steps of the fortification you will see the old Harbor Front of the city overlooking the Adriatic and the islands off the coast. Visit Dubrovnik’s main Square of the Loggia Loza. The square is located in the heart of Dubrovnik, and is surrounded by its most important buildings.
You may visit the Church of St. Blaise with its distinctive baroque façade. Next door, you may step into the Rector’s Palace. The Rector was the highest authority in the city and his palace now houses the Museum of Dubrovnik. Next door to the Rector’s Palace is the ancient town hall which today houses the National Theater of Dubrovnik.
Your guide will also take you into the Dubrovnik Cathedral and its treasury famous for its ancient relics including a fragment of the cross on which it is believed that Jesus was crucified. As you walk down the Stradun, your guide will deviate up a long flight of stairs to take you to the Dominican museum. Housed in the Dominican monastery, this is an absolute must for those interested in the Dubrovnik and Venetian schools of art. There are several paintings dating back to the 16th century including works by Titian.
Dubrovnik is full of charming cafes, restaurants, boutiques and local curiosities, nestled in the intricate network of its cobble-stoned streets and after your city tour you will be able to enjoy a leisurely lunch. (Cost of lunch is not included). Your driver will transfer your back to your ship.
Note: All touring today is on foot through pedestrian areas. No vehicle services are included. We often recommend this tour in the afternoon to avoid the worst of the cruise ship crowds.
