Pause for photos at three overlooks that present extraordinary views of Dubrovnik’s medieval Old Town, where you will enjoy free time.
After departing from the pier, you will begin a panoramic driving tour of the Dubrovnik, pausing along the way for photos at some of the most spectacular elevated settings. Your first stop will be at the Franjo Tudman Bridge, the most expensive bridge in Croatia.
Named to honor the country's first president, the suspension bridge is a beautiful, modern structure that offers sweeping harbor vistas. You will also be treated to magnificent views of the Lapad peninsula residential area and the forested Elaphite islands beyond.
Continuing along the coastal road south of Dubrovnik, you will next pause at the Bosanka lookout, where you will be presented with one of the most revealing views of the walled Old Town. The setting is truly inspiring, especially on a clear day.
For yet another perspective of Old Town, you will soon arrive at Srdj Hill. Napoleon's soldiers built Fort Imperial here in 1812 because of the strategic location and view of the sea. While there are about 80 steps to reach the hilltop, it is well worth the effort.
You will then enjoy a meandering ride down to Pile Gate, an ancient entrance that leads to a welcoming square in the medieval Old Town. During free time, you might walk along the 13th-century ramparts and stroll the main street, commonly known as the Stradun. You will also have the option to stay longer and return by shuttle on your own.
