Dear guests and visitors,

on this tour we will visit ancient town of Ston, and the famous Arboretum park in Trsteno.As a combination of botanical architecture, culture and gastronomy, this tour offers something for everyone...

Our tour starts with a pleasant ride through Dubrovnik littoral towards ancient town of Ston in company of our guide. Town Ston is surrounded with five kilometers long walls which are by their length the second in the world right after the great wall of China.Ston walls were erected in 14th century to protect the town. Over 20 towers still dominates the hill above Ston and represents an impressive review to the past of this town.

Our guided tour of Ston begins right after arrival in town.First we will visit the old churches and explore the architecture of the town, and in continuation we will climb on one section of the walls that is open for visitors. Next on our tour are 2000 years old salt pans.Ancient salt pans are still producing the salt today and unusually they are also a home of famous Ston oysters.
Gulf of Ston has a unique ecological balance and it is suitable for a growth of a variety of oysters that have died out on other areas. This fact makes them a truly special and rare delicacy.

Speaking of delicacies, it is time for lunch and we will visit one of the best restaurants in the area to enjoy Dalmatian specialties and famous Ston oysters!

After the lunch our tour continues towards village Trsteno and one of the oldest examples of garden architecture in Croatia, park Arboretum.
The Arboretum is over 500 years old and acknowledged as one of the finest gardens in Europe with more than 300 species of exotic trees and plants. During the arboretum tour you will have an opportunity to enjoy the magnificent scenery of the park including the summer manor, pavilion, aqueduct, Baroque fountain and the centerpiece of the Arboretum, two ancient oriental Plane trees standing at almost 60m tall. The Plane trees are the only specimens of their kind in Europe and make a wonderful photo opportunity.

After an exploration of the Arboretum, we will start our return to Dubrovnik where this exciting tour ends… Join us!
