The 'Great Wall' Of Ston With Wine TastingExplore > Croatia (Hrvatska) > Dubrovnik > The 'Great Wall' Of Ston With Wine Tasting
Visit the medieval walled city of Ston.
A short, 37 mile trip from Dubrovnik will transport you to another time.
After a pick up from the cruise pier, we are headed beyond Dubrovnik, to the countryside. Our destination is Ston, a medieval city home to a lesser known yet remarkable attraction, the Great Wall of Ston! Ston was once a military fort of the Ragusan Republic, surrounded by a 3,000 foot long defensive wall, 2nd in length only to the Great Wall of China. A trip to this Gothic city would not be complete without a walk on this famous wall.
Beyond roots as an important military base, this area now thrives on both land and sea, with farming, olive groves, salt production, fishing and oysters farms in abundance. To get a taste of the local flavor, a visit to their famous salt pans and a nearby winery is on the intinerary, including a sampling of the local wines with a prosciutto and cheese snack accompaning the wine.
- The cost of this program includes a wine tasting, along with prosciutto and cheese.
- Please alert ShoreTrips in advance of any dietary restrictions or food allergies. We will do our best to accommodate.
