Exploring Dubrovnik by Cable Car
Departing Pile Square on foot with your guide, you will walk towards the cable car station situated outside the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Upon arrival, you will board your cable car and ascend to a panoramic view of Dubrovnik from Srd Hill. From your bird's - eye view, you will be able to take in the beauty of the coastal area as well as gaze down on the entire city, including its centuries - old walled city.
After descending back to the lower cable car station, your tour guide will lead you by foot to the Old Town of Dubrovnik, where you will walk through one of the largest and most luxurious open - air museum towns in existence. The famous Croatian tourist center awaits you, encircled by its monumental stone ramparts, which have preserved and enhanced Dubrovnik's spirit of Renaissance. You will be awed by the labyrinth of short, narrow stone streets, the marketplace, palaces, towers, monasteries and houses, each of which is over 300 years old!
The old masters understood how to construct a miraculously harmonious stone city. This harmony, simplicity and sense of beauty have, through the ages, become the basic philosophy of life for the residents of Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik was the bridge and diplomatic liaison between the east and west. It has been subject to fires and catastrophic earthquakes, but has always risen again like the phoenix to retain its renown as a world - famous treasury of cultural monuments. During your tour, your guide will stop outside of many of the Old Town's most impressive buildings, and give you more details on their history, design and importance.
The government hadn't paid the taxes on the cable car so it hasn't been running for almost a year. Regardless, it was an amazing tour. The pace was nice and we had plenty of time to explore the walled city. Ask for Lana, she was great!

The walking tour was great and very informative. Great history lesson!! The length of the tour was perfect as well. Unfortunately the cable car was not operating and we were not able to go up the mountain but the great tour made up for it.

This tour was a bit underwhelming in simplicity, but the rich history and beautiful structures added flair to the tour. Additionally, our tour guide was wonderful - English fluent and informative. Careful on this tour - you will climb a significant number of stairs to reach the Cable Car lift. Be in shape! Great food and beer! Highly Recommend
