Walls & Wars

The only walking tour of the city walls



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!
