    Culture & Gastronomy Along the Konavle Silk Road

Culture & Gastronomy Along the Konavle Silk Road

  • City: Dubrovnik
  • Duration: Approximately 3 hours (half-day); or 6 hours (full-day).

Overview

For decades the spectacular beauty of the Konavle and Cavtat regions, located south of Dubrovnik, on the border with Montenegro, has attracted visitors from all over the world who come to enjoy the magnificent views and colorful heritage. During this full-day tour you will have the opportunity to experience this picturesque province, making it a perfect introduction to southern Croatia.

Meeting at your hotel, the tour will head first to the coastal resort of Cavtat where you will stroll along the sea promenade and visit the Museum of Vlaho Bukovac, one of Croatia's most famous modern painters.

From Cavtat you will venture to a very beautiful region called Konavle. Here, you will visit the gallery of a local artist and then tour an artisan workshop where silk is still produced as it has been since the 15th century. This is one of the very few places in Europe where silkworms are still raised; your guide will explain how this is done and how the silk fabric is woven.

The tour concludes with a memorable gastronomic experience in the village of Cilipi. Upon arrival, an ample platter of prosciutto and homemade cheeses will be served. The main dish will be veal and seasonal vegetables, all of it cooked in the fireplace under the traditional iron bell known as a 'peka'.

  • Half-Day Tour Itinerary (Afternoon Hours)
If you prefer to skip the sightseeing and head straight for the gourmet goodies, then this option is for you! This half-day tour will drive directly to the charming village of Cilipi where you will visit a local household and have a traditional meal prepared to excite your taste buds.

Upon arrival, you will enjoy an appetizer platter of domestic cured meats and homemade cheeses, followed by a three-course lunch or dinner. The main course will be (as pre-arranged) either lamb, veal or octopus served with fresh seasonal vegetables, prepared in the fireplace under the traditional iron bell known as a 'peka'.

A tour of the farm, with tastings of local wine, produce and olive oil, will also be included in this delicious gastronomic experience in southern Croatia.
