excursion to DUBROVNIK WITH MH TRAVEL AGENCY
DAILY EXCURSION FROM MONTENEGRO TO DUBROVNIK...DEPARTURES FROM KOTOR AND BUDVA...HIGHLIGHTS: THE OLD TOWN OF DUBROVNIK...DURATION: 12 HOURS...TICKET PRICE €55.00 (FROM KOTOR), €60.00 (FROM BUDVA)
Excursion to Dubrovnik is not a guided tour with a detailed explanation of all attractions. Our guide will give the most important tips for exploring the city center and then guests can explore it freely as they like. The world-famous city of Dubrovnik, well known as the jewel of the Adriatic, is located very close to the Montenegrin border. If we start from Budva or Kotor we will arrive in Dubrovnik within 2 hours of the ride with moderate waiting at the border. This is a perfect condition for an excursion, especially for guests who don't want to stay in Dubrovnik because of its very high prices, especially in the summer season. Our visit is focused only on the spectacular old town, where we will stay for 5 hours, which is more than enough time for exploring the town and its city walls. This charming, bright, and exceptional town will seduce you at first look. So, take your camera and come with us to fill your emotions with the pure beauty of magnificent Dubrovnik. Welcome!
WHEN AND WHERE WILL WE START?
The tour starts at 8:00 am close to the old town of Budva. The next pick-up is in the city of Kotor close to the old town. From Kotor to Budva is only a 25 km distance. In the off-season, we need 25 minutes of the ride between the cities, but in the very high season, we need 45 minutes which is written in our itinerary. If guests take the private tour we will pick up them from their accommodations.
The departure point in Kotor is from the ECO PETROL gas station next to the main bus station.
The departure point in Budva is from the ECO PETROL gas station next to the hotel Slovenska Plaža
WHERE WE WILL GO?
We will go to the old town of Dubrovnik.
DUBROVNIK OLD TOWN (DUBROVNIK STARI GRAD)
After departures from Budva and Kotor, we will continue our road via Boka Bay enjoying the amazing scenery. After passing the border we will need 30 minutes ride to get to the old town of Dubrovnik, which has been listed on UNESCO's list of world heritage sights since 1979
The standard visiting the old town has two parts. The first part is exploring the main attractions inside the town and the second part is walking around the city walls. Only licensed tour guides from Dubrovnik can make walking tours inside the town.
If guests want to take their service, they can easily do that in the tourist info office located in the old town. The tour lasts 1 hour and costs 20 euros per person. But, if guests want to explore the town by themselves it is easy because of its simplicity, which consists of one main road, two main gates, two main squares, and one small port with a lighthouse.
We will start from the west gate of Pile and enter the city by the main street called Stradun. All the streets of Dubrovnik are paved with stone, but the main one looks so bright, thanks to millions of steps through the centuries, which have made the stone polished.
At the beginning of Stradun guests will see Onforio's Fountains, Franciscan Church with Monastery, and the main entrance to the city walls. The street is 300 meters long where the traditional " il giro di Stradun" is the most important thing. This means slowly walking like on the promenade.
After 10 minutes guests will be at the end of Stradun where is Orlando's Column located as well as the Clock Tower, the Church of the Saint Blaise the protector of the town, Rector's Palace, Sponza Palace, the City Hall, the City Theatre Marin Drzic and the most important Gradska Kavana Arsenal (the most traditional and popular restaurant and cafe bar in the old town). Having the table there is mission impossible in the summer season, but making the photos is always possible:))
Across the Rector's Palace is beautiful Gundulic Square with a green market. The square got the name of the biggest poet from Dubrovnik Ivan Gundulic with its monument in the center. Locals sell traditional products from Konavle's region like candied fruits and products from the divine fragrance of lavender. Gorgeous Historic Stairs connect the square to the top where is the Church of St. Ignatius.
Going down next to the city walls, the street leads to the old port and Maritime Museum. The Port has a pier and breakwater named Porporela with a lighthouse and several benches where guests can enjoy the view of Lokrum island (the closest island to Dubrovnik).
Port also has several fish restaurants and numerous tourist boats and submarines which offer a short ride to the island or around the town. Next to the main exit/entrance to the old port is located Dominican Monastery and east gate Ploce.
The dress code in the churches is obligatory. No matter how warm it is outside, short pants and not covered arms are not allowed. After exploring the old town, we suggest a small break and preparing for visiting the city walls. The entrance fee for city walls is 35 euros per adult person, for childer under 18 the price is 15 euros. Guests who don't want to visit the city walls can have lunch or take a cable car or boat ride around the town and Lokrum Island.
The city walls were built in the 10th century and rebuilt in the 13th and 14th of century. They are 2 km long and have two towers named Minceta tower and Bokar Tower. The view from the walls of the town and its red roofs, hidden gardens, monasteries, schools, balconies, and flower terraces is impressive. We highly recommend everyone to visit it. But be aware, that the standard time for the full circle around the walls with all photo stops lasts 2 hours.
After visiting Dubrovnik, we will return to Kotor and Budva. We will carefully monitor the situation at the border and in the event that there is a wait at the border for more than an hour, we will start the tour an hour earlier.
The tour is organized by middle-class air-conditioned cars or minibusses. Our tour to Dubrovnik goes directly via border crossings Kobila (MNE)/ Vitaljina (HR).
Croatia is part of the European Union, so the Schengen Visa is required.
The price of the private tour is per car, not per person. The maximum number of guests in the car is 4. The private tour from Budva costs 240 euros, and from Kotor is 220 euros. Private tours can depart any day.
We give a discount for groups of more than 10 people.
