Dubrovnik Old Town is the finest example of Mediterranean architecture and is protected by UNESCO. Your Ensemble Experience pairs this rich history with some cinematic fame in the form of the Tyrell Garden in the HBO series Game of Thrones.
You’ll begin with a guided walking tour in the old city center. The architecture in all its Venetian grandeur is amazing! You’ll find palaces and cathedrals, and all of Dubrov-nik’s history before you in a maze of ancient marble streets.
Then, leaving Old Town, you’ll take a ride along the breathtaking Riviera to enjoy the wonderful views of the crystal clear Adriatic Sea and Elaphite Island.
The scenic drive will take you to the village of Trsteno, home to 500-year old giant natural monuments - Asian plane trees. It’s also home to Trsteno Arboretum which was used as a setting in Game of Thrones seasons 3 & 4. It’s mostly associated with scenes involving the powerful family from the Reach, the Tyrells, which made it earn the famous nickname the “Tyrell (High) Garden”.
The Arboretum is truly a hidden gem that boasts the 15th century renaissance summer residence and garden of the Gozze family. It also includes an aqueduct, mill, fountain with Neptune and nymphs and the belvedere pavilion overlooking the sea. It’s the finest example of Dubrovnik summer residence garden architecture.
After the Arboretum, you’ll drive to a family estate located above the Village of Slano. Your host and his family will welcome you with an aperitif followed by a tasting of local honey with traditional Croatian pastry.
Then, enjoy a wonderful view from the terrace as you’re served a carefully prepared, homemade lunch of local specialties before returning to the pier.
