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.

This walking tour with Marko as our guide was the absolute highlight of our visit to Dubrovnik and of our 7-day Adriatic trip as a whole. His English was excellent and he was very knowledgeable about the history of the city. We were particularly interested in more recent history 1990s and he spoke with passion about the war during the early part of that decade. The city is an amazing place due to the fortifications combined with interesting architecture within the old town i.e. the city walls. We had a very good reasonably priced meal at a restaurant in the old town where the waiters were very friendly.
