Crowd-free Dubrovnik: Early Morning Sightseeing Tour

Your tour will begin near the Ploče gate and, after a brief introduction to the city and its history from your local guide, we will take a leisurely stroll through the walled city of Dubrovnik, highlighting the main historic and cultural sights as we go. Our first stop will be in front of the imposing Revelin Fortress on Arms Square; here we will talk about how the city came to be built and why it was essential to fortify it. While you’re listening, you’ll be able to take some swoon-worthy shots of the old port. Next we’ll take a stroll down St. Dominik street, stopping outside the delightfully gothic Dominikan monestary, featuring one of the biggest gothic churches on the Adriatic coast. Within these sacred walls is a rare collection of Renaissance artworks that not many people know about. As we walk towards the port, your guide will regale you with tales about the thriving naval trade which became one of the main contributing factors to Dubrovnik’s immense wealth. We will pass by the city’s stunning cathedral, which just so happens to be the birthplace of the original city. Then we will show you arguably the most beautiful of the palaces located within the city walls — the Rector’s Palace. We’ll continue down some mesmerising side streets connected to the market, where we’ll spend some time reflecting on what daily life looked like during Dubrovnik’s heyday in the 15th and 16th centuries. We’ll admire the Orthodox Church which has recently become an unofficial sanctuary for the city’s stray cats. Our next stop is one of Dubrovnik’s most famous landmarks, Onofrio’s fountain. Incredibly, Dubrovnik was one of the first cities in Europe to give fresh water to its citizens and to build a working sewage system. You can fill up your water bottle with pure spring water from the nearby Šumet spring while you’re here. The spectacular Franciscan monastery, one of the oldest buildings in a city full to the brim with old buildings, is next. Amazingly it houses one of the oldest, continually in-use pharmacies in Europe. Heading down Stradun now, one of the city’s most famous streets (you may have seen it in a tiny show called Game of Thrones?!). We will end up on Luza Square with some scintillating tales about some of the landmarks in front of you; Orlando’s Column, St Blaise Church and Sponza Palace. Our final stop will be the city's green market, and boy do we have a treat for you, we’ll chow down on local candied orange peels, sugar-coated almonds and a whole host of exceptional dried fruits, chatting to the locals as we do so. Here we will also grab coffee at one of our favorite local places. There are some great breakfast options here too, so feel free to stay on and grab yourself a delicious early morning snack, you have earned it! This is where we part ways but before you go, don’t forget to tap up your guide for all the current goings on in the city and for recommendations of what else to see and do while you’re here.
