We meet at the Amerling fountain and initiate with our tour. We explore all the locations around the old town and the highlight is definitely Lovrijenac fort which was posing as the Red Keep. There is a certain amount of stairs to climb, but once you get to the top, the view will take your breath away - prepare your cameras and make sure your phones are fully charged to be able to take all the photos. After the Red Keep, we descend towards the old town, cover the scenes that took place there and afterwards we catch the ferry to Lokrum island which is the host of the Iron Throne.Dubrovnik was not only King's Landing, it was also posing as City of Quarth, the greatest city that ever was or will be. Lush green gardens that belong to Lokrum island were a part of the scenery as well. Just 5 minutes from Lokrum harbor, a delight for all Game of Thrones fans lies – the Iron Throne, and you definitely don’t want to miss out on your chance to get a photo of you sitting on it! Besides memorable Khaleesi scenes, Lokrum has lovely natural beaches, several restaurants, peacocks and bunnies walking freely amongst tourist and the island itself offers many opportunities for relaxing, which all combined with Game of Thrones scenes make the island a desirable location to spend the day. If you'd like to, take your swimming gear with you (bathing suits, towels) because after the tour is done, you can dive into the clear blue Adriatic and swim away the day. Have in mind that the island has certain working hours and when the last boat leaves, the last visitors are meant to be on it as well.
