Full description

Enjoy a full-day excursion from Split to Dubrovnik, where you will tour inside the historic city walls and along the limestone streets of the Old Town. 

First, enjoy a scenic ride along the Dalmatian Coast, stopping once or twice for panoramic views across the Adriatic Sea. This is the Mediterranean as it used to be, before the onslaught of mass tourism.

Upon arrival at the pearl of the Isthmus of Dubrovnik, take an official guided tour of the city’s historic monuments. 

Each corner of Dubrovnik is a unique experience, and the 90-minute tour is enough to visit attractions such as the monumental Pile Gate, located at the top of Stradun, Dubrovnik’s famous street of limestone, polished by years of footfall.

Go to the Franciscan Monastery, where 30,000 volumes, 216 incunabula, and 1,500 valuable handwritten documents are stored in the library. The cloister is one of the most magnificent monuments in the city and houses the oldest pharmacy in Europe, dating back to 1317.

A little further on, encounter the Renaissance splendor of Sponza Palace, notable for its portico and columns, and elaborate stone carvings. Today it is home to Croatia’s State Archives. 

Your guided tour ends at St. Blaise Cathedral, dedicated to the city’s patron saint and protector. Built on the ruins of a 12th-century church, it was destroyed by an earthquake in 1667, then rebuilt in a Baroque style. 

You are now free to explore the town by yourself. Feel free to climb the city walls and walk the full 1.24-mile (2-kilometer) circuit, offering breathtaking views across a sea of terracotta tiles and the boats and cruise liners in the bustling port. 

Try some authentic Croatian dishes in local taverns, or just enjoy a cup of coffee in an al fresco café and watch the world go by.

It was a very well organized tour with a very nice group of people. Everything worked out so well with the weather gods being really merciful on us! Our driver was the jolly Ivan and our guide was the witty Igor. It’s a long journey but the scenery along the way is as beautiful as the destination. We went on the highway via the new bridge, and therefore, didn’t need to cross the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Great day tour if you have limited time. Everything was well organized. Make sure you show up on time. They don't wait. Christina was a great guide and the driver was nice too. Nice air conditioned mini van for about 20 people. It's about 3h drive each way. You then get an optional 1h guided tour of the city and you get about 3h free time for lunch and visit.
