Once the seat of power for the 14th-century Ragusa Republic, the Rector's Palace houses a first class collection of artefacts, furniture and arms. But before exploring this treasure trove of Croatian culture, you'll hit the city's busiest street to snap a few photos of beautiful Baroque buildings and visit the city's market.
Meet up with your guide on Brsalje Square and beneath a blanket of terracotta rooftops, you'll stroll down the Stradun – the city's main vein. See the ornate Onforio's fountain and the Orthodox church, before stopping by Dubrovnik's open-air street market. With stall after stall laden with colourful farm-fresh produce, it's a great place to sample some local foods.
You'll also get to grab a selfie outside the church of St Blaise – the city's patron saint. But the star of the show is the Rector's Palace. Be dazzled by its antiques and find out about the fascinating history here as you tour the stately small council office, the rector's private rooms, and descend into the dungeons.
