You find your officially licensed guide at the end of the cruise terminal, waiting for you with a sign with your name on it, or at your accommodation in Dubrovnik. Once you see him, he will bring you the adapted vehicle to start your Panoramic City Tour through Dubrovnik.
During this tour, you will enjoy Dubrovnik with a scenic drive around the center, ending at the viewpoint above the Old Town to enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful panoramic view. Here you have time to soak up your surroundings and take some pictures.
After visiting the viewpoint, your tour continues with an adapted walking/rolling tour through the old town. You bring a visit to several sites, including the beautiful Rector’s Palace. Then you will continue towards the Sponza Palace. This palace owes its name to the Latin word ‘spongia,’ the place where rainwater is collected. It is also known locally as the Divona (customs). The Palace, which used to be a customs office, has had several other functions, such as an armory, treasure room, bank, and a school. Today, the city archives of Dubrovnik are kept in the Palace, with documents dating back to 1022.
Following on your walk/roll to the St Blaise church. The most beloved church for the locals. It is a gorgeous spectacle to see the light beaming through the stained glass. On top of the church is the statue of St. Blaise, holding a model of the old city in his hands, protecting his people.
Furthermore, the tour continues to the cathedral and Orlando’s Column. Roland (Orlando) was a knight employed by Emperor Charlemagne, whose heroic deeds are sung about in the Roelant song. He became the legendary symbol of heroism and resistance, similar to King Arthur and his knights in Britain.
At the end of the Panoramic City Tour Dubrovnik, you have some free time to walk/roll around. After this, your guide brings you back to the cruise terminal or your accommodation again.
