Plan ahead to see the many sides of Dubrovnik, from the location for the HBO series Game of Thrones to a haven for a variety of water sports. Here are a few ways to spend two days in Dubrovnik.
Dubrovnik Cathedral Treasury
Držićeva poljana, Dubrovnik, Dalmatia, Croatia, 20000
Dubrovnik Cathedral is ornate, with a facade of Corinthian columns and a colorful Titian triptych above the main altar. The treasury is filled to the brim with an eccentric collection of bones, limbs of St. Blaise encased in gold, and other relics from the 11th through 18th centuries, as well as many Italian paintings.
Private and small-group walking tours of Dubrovnik visit the Cathedral Treasury. Tours often also stop at other notable places around Dubrovnik’s Old Town, including Sponza Palace, Onofrio’s Fountain, the ancient city walls, Fort Revelin, and more.
Fantastic round tour in the old town of Dubrovnik 🏰
Our round tour in the old town of Dubrovnik was amazing. Elvis, our tour guide did a fantastic job showing us the historic sights and giving us many interessant facts about the history of Dubrovnik. It was both educational and also entertaining — due to Elvis’ great sense of humor. Thank to this great tour we’re having a better understanding and even more appreciation for the city. We love it and could recommend it to anyone visiting Dubrovnik for the first time. 😊
