Explore the Old City of Dubrovnik with a wonderful private guide.
George Bernard Shaw once wrote "Those who seek paradise on earth should come to Dubrovnik". The visitor today will find this city a place to renew themselves and their faith in human nature. Stroll the picturesque streets, investigate some of the historic sights, and then relax at a sidewalk cafe.
Your day begins with a lovely drive along a gorgeous panoramic road with spectacular views of the Dubrovnik coastline and Riviera. Upon arrival at Pile Gate, we'll enter the walled city, also known as Old Town. We'll walk down the city's main pedestrian-only street called the "Stradun." It runs straight across Old Town and its limestone surface has been buffed down to a slippery polish due to the countless feet that have walked on it!
You might find this part of the city somewhat uniform in the design and color of the houses. This is because of strict construction regulations after the major earthquake in 1667.
During the walk, we'll see and hear about Onofrio's Big Fountain of 1444 and the small St. Savior's Church, a simple Renaissance structure that influenced other church designs. From the church, we'll take a narrow passageway to the Franciscan Monastery complex with its attached museum.
Throughout the tour, your guide will share stories of what the city was like during the war of 1991-1992, as you'll find little that reminds you of that difficult time. The citizenry has worked hard to repair and replace the damage from that time.
