Full description
A stroll around Dubrovnik’s city walls is a must-do for every visitor to Croatia. The best way to see it is to come before everyone else does — so join this tour to get to the city walls as soon as the gates open, on either a shared or private tour. As you walk, learn from your guide about how the wall was built, sprinkled with exciting legends and funny tales.   After climbing some steps, you’ll be rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic view of the main street Stradun and the skyline of the Old Town. Walk along 2 kilometers of the wall to enjoy beautiful landscapes of the sparkling Adriatic Sea and the skyline that still speaks of the splendor of a town that was a wealthy republic for 450 years. Six meters deep in some places, the walls are dotted with forts looking out to both sea and land. Your tour ends on the highest point along the wall, the top of Minceta Tower, where the view is not to be missed.

Our tour guide, Gellana (hope I have spelt that right), was really friendly and full of knowledge. We learnt so much about the city walls and the city itself, which made the walls walk really interesting and memorable. Dubrovnik is a truly beautiful city and the views from the walls are incredible, you get to see so much more with Gellana’s informative guide as she pointed out so much along the walk, which you just wouldn’t see without a guide. Well worth it.

We walked with Darko along the walls of the Old City with pleasure. Darko knows a lot and knows how to tell interesting stories, without unnecessary details. At our request, he recommended us some good restaurants, some of which we later visited and were satisfied. Thanks to Darko for a wonderful excursion.

The city walls are a sight to behold! Views are spectacular and we cannot recommend the early tour enough due to fewer visitors and lower temperature (it’s still hot, but nothing compared to midday) We were lucky to have Jelena as our guide as she is really lovely and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city and Croatia in general. We were able to ask questions as we went along and she gave us tips for places to eat and other sights to visit. It’s definitely worth paying extra for a tour of the walls so that you can find out the history of the buildings across the city.
