Beside crystal clear sea and pretty places along the Dubrovnik coast, this area offers also a very interesting inland part called Konavle with fruitful valleys in the middle and high mountains on the other side.
This excursion is offered to provide visitors, staying in Dubrovnik and other tourist places around, to dive into the green area of Konavle that is hiding a
turbulent but magnificent history that still can be felt on some places.
The first stop, after picking you up from your hotels, will be on a great viewpoint above Konavle and its center Cavtat – a unique viewpoint that cannot be described with words.
The second stop will be under a fort that was built on a cliff 25 meters high from the Illyrians and Romans.
It is called Sokol Kula what means falcon fort as from here you have a view far out over the Konavle area, almost like a falcon has.
Built as a protection fortification and renovated during the last years, today you have the possibility to enter this fort, visit the old store- and guard houses inside of it.
For sure, beside the great panoramic views, you will also feel the spirit of this ancient place while listening and learning about its history and purpose.
The next stop is also about the history and lifetime of Konavle but closer to the valleys and the river Ljuta that still flows through the fields. Just close to the river, you will get the opportunity to visit a system of water-and stamp mills built about 400 years ago, listen about its history and also see a demonstration of the same as they still work like hundred years ago.
After some liqueur tasting, we drive further on now to the other site of Konavle, closer to the sea and visit one more household called the „Stone mill“.
Here you will join presentations of stone mill for olives, hand made mill stone for making flour, old distillery, process of making arancini (sweets from orange peel) and hear stone myth, taste local wine, olive oil and olive pate…
After so much history and new information you got, before returning to your hotel, let's have a short walk through Cavtat.
