Upon your guide’s arrival to your hotel or port you can confirm the itinerary. You will then head to the old town, where all attractions are, by public transportation. Moving from one attraction to another thereafter is via walking as they are near one another. In the end of your tour, you are free to visit any sites of interests, or your guide may take you back to port or your hotel.
We’ll be walking around historical peninsula without entering the museums. Please inform us earlier whether you’d like to extend duration and visit the museums, too (tour fee increases).
