Dubrovnik Holidays

Experience the "Pearl of the Adriatic” with us on our guided Dubrovnik tours to Croatia’s most stunning city. Once the capital of a maritime republic that rivalled Venice, Dubrovnik has been an important seaport for centuries. Located in between rugged mountains and the Adriatic Sea, Dubrovnik is the setting for a very special Croatia holiday.

Dubrovnik is one of the top destinations in Europe, offering the perfect combination of sun-kissed coast, stunning views, chic restaurants and beautiful medieval buildings. It was under rule by various dynasties such as the Byzantine Empire and the Venetians. It was built in the 13th century while its well-preserved city walls and towers were built from the 14th to the 16th centuries; it was used as a filming location for ‘Game of Thrones’ for the fictional city of King’s Landing, which certainly helped to increase awareness of one of the top sights in Croatia and inspired many people to take a trip to Dubrovnik. In 1667 a devastating earthquake nearly destroyed the entire city and when the breakup of Yugoslavia occurred in the early 1990s, there was some damage again during the Croatian War of Independence. After the war, with some coordination from UNESCO, the Old Town was restored and when taking a walking tour of Dubrovnik, you can experience examples of Baroque, Gothic and Renaissance architecture. 

On our Dubrovnik tours, we’ll explore some of the city’s most famous and important landmarks including the Dubrovnik Cathedral, Pile Gate, City Walls and charming Old Town. We’ll also have the opportunity to visit some of the nearby islands just off the coast of Dubrovnik, including the pristine Elaphite Islands and the lush island of Lokrum. There is also an optional day trip to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where we’ll see the iconic Mostar bridge or Stari Most. The destruction of the Ottoman bridge became an infamous image of the Bosnian war. The bridge was rebuilt and today it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a symbol for peace and reconciliation.

All our holidays to Dubrovnik include return flights, accommodation, transfers and excursions led by a local expert guide. We also offer a variety of other Croatia tours to inspire you further.

Top Tourist Attractions In Dubrovnik

Profile Image

Pile Gate

For centuries, this has been the main entrance to Dubrovnik's Old Town. Built in 1537, it used to be surrounded by a moat and the drawbridge used to close at night time, but it’s open 24/7. Above the gate, there is a statue of Saint Blaise, the city’s patron saint, which was carved by the Croatian artist Ivan Meštrovic.

Stradun

Stradun is the name of the main street in Dubrovnik’s Old Town.  It is full of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants and is the perfect place to sit back, relax and watch the world go by.  Make sure to visit a “gelateria” for a tasty ice cream that will rival any made in Italy!

Dubrovnik Cable Car

Take a cable car ride up to the peak of Mount Srđ. The cable car ride is a must do, it takes less than 5 minutes and you will be rewarded with an incredible view of the Old Town and its surroundings.

Franciscan Monastery

Although most of the original building was destroyed in the 1667 earthquake, visitors can still enjoy the Romanesque cloister and gardens. Above the church door there is an ornate portal carved by local monks in 1498. It’s also the location of the longest operating pharmacy in Europe since 1317 and an on-site museum housing a collection of art and rare books.

Rector's Palace

Built in the late 15th Century, this was formerly the residence of the city’s governor. Today this Venetian-Gothic palace houses the Cultural History Museum, where you can learn more about the history of Ragusa, a republic that ruled Dubrovnik from 1358 until 1808.

Fort of St. John

Dating back to the 14th century and known locally as the Fort of St. Ivan, it was an integral part of the defence complex of Dubrovnik city walls and would help guard the Old Harbour. Today it houses the Maritime Museum, which provides an interesting insight into the naval history of Dubrovnik, and the aquarium.
