Another side of Dubrovnik - Old Town walking Tour

Dubrovnik
2 hours

Do you want to try and see something different, a part of the Old Town which is more authentic, local, and unique? Let's visit the Old Town together, but not just the main center where everyone goes to. In the backstreets of that beautiful masterpiece within the walls, streets with narrow paths and quiet terraces, where local people drink their coffee and kids play all the time, is the most traditional and local part of the city - one that hosts most of the city residents today. Let's go!
