The day starts with a scenic drive, near to the top of Srdj hill mountain, from where you will have some amazing views over the Old Town and the Dubrovnik Riviera. A beautiful sight, perfect to take some holiday snapshots. From this viewing point, you continue to the medieval town of Cavtat, along the coastal road.
The Konavle Valley is a region just south of Dubrovnik, and known for its stunning landscapes, rich cultural heritage, and traditional way of life. Although technically a coastal town, Cavtat is often considered part of the Konavle region. It is a picturesque little village, located on a peninsula, that combines history, natural beauty, and a laid-back atmosphere. It is known for its cultural heritage, highlighted by landmarks such as the charming squares, pastel-colored buildings, the Racic Mausoleum and the historic Franciscan Monastery.
Along the idyllic accessible waterfront promenade, you will find various restaurants, overlooking the Adriatic sea, and see the fishing boats and yachts in the marina.
After exploring the Konavle valley, your driver and your guide will take you back to Dubrovnik. From Pile Square, you start your adapted walking/rolling tour in the Old Town through the main street, Stradun. Alongside this promenade you will find various shops, restaurants and the various historic building.
Within the Old Town, you will be guided along the famous sights, with Rector’s Palace as one of the main highlights. This venue served many different purposes during its many years of existence. Nowadays it is a museum that houses furniture and pieces of art from the 15th to the 19th century.
Another not to be missed site is the Baroque-style Church of St. Blaise in the heart of the Old Town. It is dedicated to St. Blaise, the patron saint of the city. The church was originally built in the 14th century, but again reconstructed in the 18th century after it was damaged in an earthquake. It features a beautiful facade with a statue of St. Blaise, holding a model of the city in his hands watching over his people.
Next up are Sponza Palace, a 16th-century palace and a beautiful example of Gothic and Renaissance architecture. As well as the Dubrovnik Cathedral, the Cathedral of the Assumption. The Cathedral houses various treasuries, containing relics, paintings, and sculptures. It was rebuilt after the 1667 earthquake.
The area of the Old Port is perfect for a coffee or lunch, while you enjoy the seaside, historic boats and the views over the nearby islands.
During the day, there is time for lunch. Not included. At the end of the tour, you have some free time to wander around. When you are good to go, your driver brings you back again to your ship or your accommodation.
