Learn about life in Croatia both inside the walled city and out in the countryside.
George Bernard Shaw once wrote, "Those who seek paradise on earth should come to Dubrovnik." Today's visitors 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, you'll enter the walled city, also known as Old Town. You'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!
During your walk, you'll see and hear about Onofrio's Large Fountain of 1444 and the small St. Saviour's Church, a simple Renaissance structure that influenced other church design. From the church, you'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 will find little that reminds you of that difficult time. The citizenry has worked hard to repair and replace the damage from that time.
After spending time in Dubrovnik, you'll reboard your vehicle and continue your ride through the chain of villages towards picturesque Konavle Valley, where you'll be introduced to the wonderful countryside surrounding Dubrovnik. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before returning to the ship.
