Best Dubrovnik Ancient City Walls Historical Walking Tour
- Choice of several departures throughout the day
- Explore the local streets on a walking tour of the city
- Fully narrated tour
- Informative, friendly and professional guide
In the 11th century, the sea channel separating the city from mainland was covered up with earth, so a single wall was built to enclose the present-day Old Town. The city walls have been restored several times in history to resemble their original appearance. With your guide, see Fort Revelin and Minceta Tower within the city walls (entrance fees not included), and learn the strategic position of these forts and their role in Dubrovnik's history. You will also see Fort Lovrijenac in the distance, the only fort that belongs to the city walls but it's physically separated from them, and which you may visit after the tour.
As you wander around Dubrovnik's ancient walls, your guide will explain the defensive and political challenges faced by Dubrovnik in the past. Hear stories of the rivalry and conquest Dubrovnik has faced and learn the secrets of how the country used defensive fortifications and diplomacy to remain an independent republic for several years, before ending your tour near the port.

I was initially dubious about a walking tour it sounded like something my Granny would do but this was the best 2.5 hours we spent in Dubrovnik. Our tour guide was entertaining, knowledgeable and provided just the amount of detail to keep us engage throughout. He truly brought the fascinating and tumultuous history of Dubrovnik alive for us. I would highly recommend this tour as the first activity you undertake in Dubrovnik as it really sets the stage for the remainder of the visit.
