Dubrovnik Gastronomy: 3-Hour Food and Wine Tour

1. Dubrovnik Gastronomy: 3-Hour Food and Wine Tour

The city of Dubrovnik is known for a lot of things: its UNESCO-worthy Old Town, the sprinkling of idyllic islands that surround the mainland, the ancient city walls that comprise King's Landing in the popular HBO show 'Game of Thrones'... However, one thing that Dubrovnik is not know for, and should be, is the incredible food and wine. Take a lovely guided tour of the city's World Heritage Site-listed Old Town, and visit four cozy restaurants nestled within for a taste of Dubrovnik's unique gastronomy. Walk down the beautiful cobblestone streets and alleyways of the Old Town, and pass by some of the city's major sights, including the Franziscan and Dominican monasteries, the palaces of Sponza and Rector, and the Baroque cathedral. Discover national culinary traditions through the years, and enjoy a tasting of various snacks accompanied by a glass of local wine. Finish the fun food adventure at a cute patisserie within the ancient walls of Old Town for a taste of traditional Croatian cake.

Food tours are one of favorite activities when we visit a new city and this food tour definitely met our expectations. Our guide led us around the old town and introduced us to several restaurants known for their local cuisine. She explained the history and relevance of the food as well as how they were prepared. The wine pairings with each tasting were excellent and we learned about several regional wines. I would highly recommend this food tour.

El tour por el casco antiguo nos encantó, vale la pena recorrerlo acompañados por una guía que pueda ir contando la historia. Patricia es argentina, lo cual fue una grata sorpresa, resultó muy agradable, contestando todas nuestras preguntas y contándonos un poco de historia. También trajo material para que nos lleváramos, eso me pareció un lindísimo gesto. Es una actividad altamente recomendable.
