Add To Plan

Begin with a brief coach transfer to the lower station of the Dubrovnik Cable Car. Built in 1969, the cable car was used by visitors and locals alike for a chance to take in beautiful views of the city and surrounding area. When war came in 1991, the cable car was destroyed and remained in disrepair until its recent restoration.

Arriving at the top of Srdj hill, disembark the cable car and enjoy a short orientation before proceeding to the nearby war museum, where you will learn about the 1990s invasion of Croatia by the Serbs and Montenegrins.

After a pleasant stroll and refreshments enhanced by the majestic views, you'll take the cable car back down the hill and then walk to the Ploce Gate, the eastern entrance to the Old City, where you'll begin your walking tour of the city. View the Dominican church, the 15th-century Rectors Palace, the Church of St. Blaise, and the Cathedral, which is built on the remains of the old Cathedral that was destroyed in the earthquake of 1667. Another highlight you'll view is Sponza Palace, notable for its columned courtyard with elaborate stone carvings.

Next, discover the Croatia of 1,500 years ago with a memorable visit to the 5D Visia museum. Here, you will be mesmerized by a multimedia presentation that tells the story of the arrival of the Croatian people and the founding of Dubrovnik.

Take advantage of some free time to further explore Old Town Dubrovnik on your own, before it's time to rejoin your group and return to the pier.
