Soak up soul-stirring views of the Dalmatian Coast from the summit of Mount Srd, and then explore Dubrovnik Old Town by foot on a comprehensive combo tour! After riding up and down the mountain in the Dubrovnik cable car, explore the Old Town with a guide to learn about the city history and see sights like Sponza Palace, Onofrio’s Fountain and the elegant Church of St Blaise.
Meet your guide outside Dubrovnik cable car station, near Pile Square, and then hop inside for your ride to the top of Mount Srd – the 1,352-foot (412-meter) mountain that towers over the city. After roughly three minutes inside the cable car, arrive at the summit and gaze out at the vista of Dubrovnik and the Dalmatian Coast sprawled out at your feet. Have your camera ready; many say that on a clear day, you can see sights up to 37 miles (67km) away.After admiring the views at Mount Srd’s peak for a photo stop, travel back down to Dubrovnik by cable car, and then start your walking tour of the Old Town. Home to most of the city’s finest attractions, the neighborhood boasts culture and history in plentiful measures. See the circular Onofrio's Fountain with its huge central dome, and amble past the Franciscan monastery, where a copy of Michelangelo’s La Pietà sculpture is housed.Continue walking to Sponza Palace – an attractive building that’s easily the jewel in Dubrovnik’s Renaissance crown. Now housing the country’s extensive state archives, Sponza Palace was once the town’s most opulent palatial building. Other highlights on your walking tour include Orlando's Column, the city bell tower, Rector’s Palace and the Church of St Blaise – a pretty church dedicated to the city’s patron saint. Walk across the main square to see the Baroque Cathedral of the Assumption, which was rebuilt in the 18th century after an earthquake, and then end your walking tour near Pile Gate.
