Explore Dubrovnik by Tuk-Tuk for a Memorable Experience
We have a perfect solution for those not fond of crowds and long walks: getting to know Dubrovnik by tuk-tuk. Book a tour with the Valamar Experience Concierge at the Dubrovnik President Valamar Collection Hotel 5* and get ready for an adventure!
The Bridge of Franjo Tuđman, connecting two shores of Rijeka dubrovačka, is the first stop on the tour. You’ll be won over not only by this remarkable piece of architecture, but also by the view of Dubrovnik’s archipelago. You’ll probably think you’ve never seen anything like this, but hold your horses! Once you reach popular Srđ, the 405-metre-high hill above Dubrovnik with a viewpoint offering incredible vistas of the crystal clear Adriatic Sea, the Elaphite Islands and the roofs of the Old Town, you’ll definitely change your mind.
We can also take you to the nearby Fort Imperial, a fortress built in 1810 during the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte, which played an important defensive role during the Homeland War. We recommend taking a break after the visit, at one of the popular restaurants.
A visit to the Old Town is the best part of exploring Dubrovnik by tuk-tuk. Each alley, monument or little church you’ll come across have their own story to tell about the past times and famous maritime rulers who valued freedom above all. Walk the impressive Walls of Dubrovnik built from the 13th to the 17th century to keep the city safe from invaders. The fact that Tripadvisor has listed them among the ten must-visit landmarks only testifies to their global popularity.
Impressive historical heritage anywhere you turn
You’ll be completely mesmerised by the stunning architecture of the Old Town. Be sure to visit the Baroque Church of St Blaise, the entrance of which is guarded by Orlando’s Column depicting the medieval warrior fighting for freedom, and the Rector’s Palace, where political decisions of historical relevance for Dubrovnik were made.
The tour of Dubrovnik would not be complete without strolling down its most famous promenade, Stradun, and stopping by the Franciscan Monastery, home to the region’s first pharmacy that dates back to the 14th century. Last but not least, visit the Church of St Saviour and Onofrio’s Fountain. Take a sip for luck – it’s a good sign you’ll be revisiting the Old Town someday soon!
Although it’s virtually impossible to explore all Dubrovnik’s attractions in one day, taking a tuk-tuk tour is a great and unusual way to learn about the city’s magnificent history. Trust us, you’ll never want to leave. So book a tour and take your favourite people with you for an unforgettable ride in an electric eco-friendly vehicle!
