Conference Tour: Discover the Old Town

The Tourism & Leisure Studies Conference is pleased to announce the Conference Tour.

Join other delegates after sessions on the first day of the conference to explore Dubrovnik's Old Town.

Dubrovnik was once one of the most prosperous and advanced maritime republics of all time. On this historic walk, you'll travel through the heart of the old town and witness the impressive economic, social, and cultural achievements of Dubrovnik over the centuries. With one-way transportation from the conference venue to the start of the tour near Pile Gate, you'll discover many essential old town landmarks such as the Franciscan Monastery, D'Onofrio's Fountain, Orlando's Column, and Rector's Palace. You'll hear some of the fascinating stories and remarkable facts from around 1,400 years of Dubrovnik history, including the classic period of the Republic of Ragusa.

As this tour will involve a substantial amount of walking, it is recommended to bring water and wear comfortable footwear.
