On this 2-hour walking tour, we will walk along the walls in their entirety (almost 2 km long) where you will have magnificent views of the Old Town, Mount Srđ, and the surrounding islands. At the end of the tour, if you wish, I can accompany you to one of the most famous bars outside the city walls where you can take a rest from all the walking and stairs and enjoy the stunning beauty of the shimmering Adriatic Sea.
Check out what we are going to do.

Meeting point in front of the main entrance to the Old Town called Pile Gate.
When we enter the Old town we will be at the beginning of the main street Stradun. Here you will see the famous Onofrio’s fountain from the 15th century and hear about its construction and importance during Dubrovnik history. From this point, it is also possible to see a Franciscan monastery with one of the oldest functioning pharmacies in Europe where you can still buy natural-made products.
Once we climb the stairs, you will enjoy the breathtaking birds-eye view of Dubrovnik’s old town monuments and main street Stradun.
We will head forward to the south side of the walls facing the sea where you will see the most important monuments in this part of the Old town such as the Fort of Saint Lawrence, the Ethnographical museum, the island of Lokrum. I will also introduce you to the rich and intriguing history of Dubrovnik who once was one of the most prosperous city-states in Europe.
Once we reach Saint John Fortress you will be able to see a charming Old port with its small boats and restaurants. Saint John Fortress houses a Maritime museum with many interesting artifacts and stories about incredible Dubrovnik’s maritime history.
After Saint John's Fortress, we will proceed towards the north side of the walls. During the walk, you will see and hear interesting facts about Dubrovnik's Cathedral, Rector's Palace, Dominican monastery, fortresses Revelin and Minčeta, Sponza Palace, and Saint Blaise church. The view over the whole Old town and its terracotta roofs from this northside is incredible. A great moment to take beautiful photos!
We will end our tour at the same place we began. Of course, if you get tired during our walk, it is not mandatory to do the whole circle. There are two possible exits before reaching this main entrance.
I will pay attention to give you enough time on the walls to take photos, ask questions, grab an ice-cream or some other refreshments.
