Highlights of Dubrovnik Accessible Cruise Excursion

Untitled-2This 6-hour accessible cruise excursion of Dubrovnik visits the ancient city walls, a Franciscan Monastery, and the Rector’s Palace using a step-free route. Discover why Dubrovnik is called the “Pearl of the Adriatic” when you experience the beautiful views and rich history of this ancient city on the sea.

After your driver and guide pick you up from the cruise terminal, you will begin your Dubrovnik accessible cruise excursion by viewing the protective stone Walls of Dubrovnik, which have been in place since before the 7th century. These walls have been quite effective during the past several hundred years, as they were never breached by enemies! Several meters thick in some places, the walls are as impressive as they are ancient, and are accompanied by several fortresses and gates. You will learn about their history and construction, however, the walls are not accessible due to stairs at the entrance and along the walkway.

Next, walk/roll into Old Town Dubrovnik and enjoy the architecture, shops, and landmarks of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Make your way down the Placa Thoroughfare or Stradun, a beautiful limestone pedestrian street, and the main street of Dubrovnik.

Afterwards, you will visit the Franciscan Monastery, and one of the oldest functioning pharmacies in the world, the Friars Minor Pharmacy, established around the same year as the monastery, somewhere around 1317. The pharmacy is also a museum, where you can learn about the history of the trade as well as view ancient manuscripts and artifacts. Also, just next door to the monastery is St. Savior Church, a small 14th century church, and one of the few Renaissance buildings to survive the big earthquake of 1667.

Break for lunch in an accessible Dubrovnik café before visiting the Rector’s Palace, used by the Republic of Ragusa as the seat of the Rector between the 14th century and 1808. Nearby is the Dubrovnik Synagogue, believed to have been established in 1352. This Sephardic Synagogue is the oldest still in use in the world today!

Finally, walk/roll along the city walls for a beautiful views of the Dalmatian Coast before your driver returns you to the cruise terminal.
