Walking The Walled Town

This guided walk through the walled town is an excellent opportunity to not only get to know your way around for later independent explorations but your knowledge and experienced guide will provide you with a historic insight and context to let you appreciate this beautiful town to its fullest. As you arrive at the walled city of Dubrovnik via SeaDream tender and enter its fortress walls through the Harbor Gate, gaze up at the ever-watchful St. Blaise, the patron saint of the city. Once inside, you are sure to notice immediately the absence of signage and neon, its stone-paved Stradun Avenue lined with graceful stone palazzos, shops, sidewalk cafes and government buildings all looking as they did hundreds of years ago. Along the way we visit, among other places the Maritime Museum with a special emphasis on the glorious period of seamanship under Dubrovnik Republic in the 16th century, the Rector's Palace (15th century) once the seat of the Government and Rector in the, once, independent Republic of Dubrovnik (abolished by Napoleon in 1808). Today it gives us a taste of how the ruling class and the aristocracy used to live. Other fine buildings will be viewed from the outside: the Sponza Palace notable for its column courtyard with elaborate stone carvings, Church of Saint Blaise, Onofriou`s Fountain, etc. A knowledgeable guide brings the rich history of this visually stunning city alive! At the conclusion of this walking adventure, a stop is made at the one of the local cafe's in the Old Town for a refreshment of cookies, coffees and soft drinks.
