The Peljesac wine tour takes you to places where some of the best Croatian wines are made. Visit some great wineries and enjoy several different wines from the region.
Begin with pickup at 8am, which can be any hotel or apartment in Dubrovnik and surrounding area. First stop is Ston about 9am, a medieval town with longest stone wall in Europe with narrow streets and traces of ancient cultures spread all over the place.
As mentioned, the walls of Ston are perhaps what this little town is best known for – and rightfully so. The walls are much longer than those of its more famous neighbour Dubrovnik at 5km in length, making them the longest defensive structure in Europe; they are sometimes referred to as the ‘European Walls of China”.
After visiting Ston you will see oysters farm and taste fresh oysters.
Historical legends are telling about the affection of Roman emperors for those pearl shells, especially emphasizing emperor Tiberius crusades in Asia Minor, where oysters from Mali Ston bay were sent to him bedded in chests with dry grass which kept them fresh for days.
We have nothing but words of praise for them – the most delicious oysters in the world!
