Old Dubrovnik aqueduct hike
15th century aqueduct
This walking tour will take you to the hills overlooking Dubrovnik. The path follows the old Dubrovnik water supply system, a system of water canals covered by stone slabs. Built in the 15th century, the aqueduct was the most important way of supplying Dubrovnik with fresh water from the spring in the village of Šumet overlooking the town. In the 20th century, a new plumbing system was built in Dubrovnik and since then the old aqueduct is not in use. There are still remains from that time and a nice path, which is 7km long and spreads above the area of the Ombla River, follows the route of the old system.
On this hike you will discover some interesting parts of Dubrovnik history and enjoy spectacular views of the Ombla River, the Elaphiti islands and the Dubrovnik port area with a spectacular modern bridge.
We will end the hike above the bay of Gruž, where the Dubrovnik Port is located. Finally, we will take a shuttle back to your hotel.
Spectacular views to river Ombla
