Old Town, Dubrovnik
A visit to Dubrovnik, UNESCO World Heritage Site and capital of Croatia, is a visit to the historical outskirts of Christendom, often described as the 'Pearl of the Mediterranean'. The country's culture and traditions have been forged over 2,000 tumultuous years, witnessing the Crusades, Ottoman Empire, Iron Curtain and the Balkan conflicts. Our tour includes Dubrovnik Old City, the town of Ston with its medieval fort and salt works, and the island of Korcula, home to one of the best preserved medieval towns in the Mediterranean, before finishing in the wine growing Peljesac Peninsula.

Day 2 Full day tour to Ston, a military fort town of the Ragusan Republic with defensive walls that are a feat of medieval architecture. There is an 890 metre long town wall and 5 kilometre Great Wall outside the town, making it the second longest in the world.
