We will stop to buy the city walls tickets and then we will walk the city walls. Marvel at the beautiful blue colors of the Adriatic Sea and admire breathtaking views of the port and the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, while your guide takes you through the history of the city walls. 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. *Entrance fee to City Walls not included in price.

This was a lovely tour. Our guide Jadranka gave us all the information we wanted to know, entertained us with stories from history and was very helpful and informative. The tour was well organized and well paced so it wasn't a problem to walk around even in the heat. I think this is a good combination for seeing the main sights of Dubrovnik.

This combo was a good way to get a lot in during a day, while still having a break to relax and wander around the Old Town. However, the Old Town portion was a little "light" on content, while the Walls tour was excellent

Very Interesting City and Walls . Unfortunately spoiled by Overly Political Guide. While we understand the severe difficulties during the 1990s siege , the political diatribe was constant . We left the group and toured the wall on our own.

Don't do both Old Town and Walls

Both guides were excellent but there was quite a lot of duplication in the commentaries. A bit awkward navigating the walls in a big group so maybe do that one on your own and enjoy learning the history during the old town tour.
