Your tour begins from the pier with a drive over the new panoramic road to a viewpoint where views of Dubrovnik and its Riviera can be enjoyed. Continuing on, you'll make your way to the picturesque seaside resort town of Cavtat, which was the Ancient Roman City of Epidaurus. Over the years, this picturesque town has been a favorite destination for sailors and yacht enthusiasts. Upon arrival, you'll have the opportunity to take a walk along the seafront promenade or enjoy a coffee in one of many cafes located along the coast.
Next, you'll board a motorboat and depart Cavtat, sailing along the eastern coast of the Dubrovnik Riviera back to Dubrovnik's Old Town Harbor. From here, you'll continue with a guided walking tour of the area before making your way to the Nautika restaurant where you'll be treated to lunch. Located on Pile Square and protected by the fortresses of Bokar and Lovrijenac, this charming restaurant with its two terraces above the sea will offer you magnificent views as well as tasty local specialties.
Following lunch, you'll make your way back to the pier, along the way visiting the Franciscan Monastery whose cloister ranks among the most inspiring sites of the city, the oldest still working pharmacy in Europe (opened 1317), and the Cathedral which is built on the remains of another one built in the 12th century that was destroyed in 1667 by an disastrous earthquake. Today, the Cathdral's Treasury contains one of the finest collections of gold and silver in Europe.
