Description

Private Seaside Resort of Cavtat and Dubrovnik After meeting your professional tour guide on the pier, set off to a look-out point where you will have sweeping views of Dubrovnik and the Croatian Riviera. Continue on to the picturesque seaside resort town of Cavtat, which was the Ancient Roman City of Epidaurus. Over the years, Cavtat has been a favorite destination for sailors and yacht enthusiasts. After a brief orientation of the town with your guide, you will have time on your own for a pleasant walk along the beautiful seafront promenade, or time to take a coffee in one of the many cafes located along the shore. After your free time in Cavtat, rejoin your guide and drive back along the coast to the walled town of Dubrovnik. Although the founding of the city is not clear, evidence points to there being a Greek port here sometime in the years before Christ. During the 7th century, the town was under the protection of the Byzantine Empire. After the Crusades, it came under the sovereignty of Venice before ruling itself as a free state from the 14th century until 1808. The Republic kept up with current customs and institutions, and in the 1300s could boast it had a medical service, a quarantine hospital, a refuge for old people and a pharmacy that is still in operation. Upon arrival, you will enter the town at the Pile Gate entrance, where you will find yourself on the Old Town's main street. Your private guide will take you on a walk along the Stradun, point out some of Dubrovnik's Renaissance buildings that survived the earthquake of 1667, and will give you an idea of the city's architectural heritage. You will see the exterior of the Sponza Palace, perhaps the finest example of Renaissance architecture, which dates from the 16th century and is now home to the National Archives. Your guide will also point out the exterior of the Rectors Palace, a Gothic-Renaissance structure from the 15th century which was the seat of the Government and Rector or the Republic. The palace has undergone several rebuilding and repairing periods due to several earthquakes and a gunpowder explosion, so you will also see the Baroque style in some of the architecture. Today the palace is the home to the history department of the museum of Dubrovnik. Continuing your walk with your private guide, you will see the exterior of the St. Saviour Church, another remnant of the Renaissance period, located next to a Franciscan Monastery. The monastery's library consists of more than 30,000 volumes including valuable handwritten documents. Before departing, your guide will answer any questions you have about additional sightseeing, shopping or where to sample Dalmatian cuisine. If your ship is at the Port of Gruz, you will be given one hour free time in the Old Town before being transferred back to your ship.
