For those wanting to truly experience the best of Dubrovnik, we invite you to combine both walks on one ticket - at a discount!
Please join either our Discover the old town walk or Dubrovnik Walls & Wars walk at any schedule time and request a combo ticket. This ticket will allow you to take the remaining walk at any other scheduled time at your convenience.
Total duration is 3,5 hours, but please keep in mind that these are 2 separate tours, that you can do both in the same day or days apart.
All you need to keep in mind are the scheduled times. Ie. you can combine Walls tour at 9:30 am with Discover the old town tour at 12 and be done with both by 1:30 pm. Or you can do one on one day and the second one on another. We are that flexible.
Also please bear in mind that the Walls tour involves stairs, so it is not suitable for pregnant women, small children (strollers) or disabled persons.
-- DISCOVER THE OLD TOWN TOUR --
General introductory tour of the old town
Did you know that Dubrovnik was one of the most prosperous and advanced maritime republics of all time? On this historic walk, you'll travel through the heart of the old town and witness the impressive economic, social, and cultural achievements of Dubrovnik over the centuries.
Starting by Pile Gate, you'll discover many essential old town landmarks such as the Franciscan Monastery, D'Onofrio's Fountain, Orlando's Column, and Rector's Palace.
You'll hear some of the fascinating stories and remarkable facts from around 1,400 years of Dubrovnik history, including the classic period of the Republic of Ragusa. It is an excellent introduction to the old town.
-- WALLS & WARS TOUR --
Do you know that Dubrovnik was protected by both defensive fortifications and the diplomatic skills of its leaders? This historic walk will focus on the defensive and political challenges faced by Dubrovnik in its struggle to survive as a tiny (yet prosperous) independent republic facing serious threats from powerful and dangerous enemies. Over the centuries, the leaders and the walls of Dubrovnik both held firm.
Your guide will lead you on top of and around the city walls for breath-taking views of the port and the old town. You'll discover Revelin Fortress, Minceta Tower, Lovrijenac Fortress and more - and why the city walls served as essential structures protecting the people and wealth of the old town for centuries.
This tour is a bit steep due to all the stairs on the city walls and therefore not suitable for everyone.
It is focused on defense and fortification system of Dubrovnik.
Intrigued by our rivals, enemies, conflicts and wars? Then this is a perfect tour for you!
Meet your guide at the Meeting Point 5-15 minutes before the starting time.
You'll see a Dubrovnik Walks sign - you can buy a ticket on the spot. No need to reserve in advance, but if you do book, please note you need to come at the time you are booked for. See you there!
