Trsteno and Ston

Combining cultural, botanical and gastronomic revelations, this tour of the historic town of Ston and the Trsteno Arboretum has something for everyone.

The tour begins with a leisurely stroll through Trsteno's reknowned arboretum. At over 500 years old and housing more than 300 species of exotic tree and plant life, the arborteum is widely acknowledged as one of the finest gardens in Europe. During the tour you'll have a chance to take in the magnificent scenery, including the summer manor, pavillion, aquaduct and Baroque fountain and will also be able to view the centrepiece of the arboretum, two ancient Oriental Plane trees. Standing at almost 60m tall, the trees are the only specimens of their kind in Europe and make a wonderful photo opportunity.

After an exploration of the botanical garden, the tour moves to Ston. This historic town is surrounded by a 5km long fortified wall, the second longest in the world after the Great Wall of China, which was originally erected in 1358 to protect the town. Now, over 20 towers still remain and the wall represents an impressive flashback to the past. Your guide will accompany you as you wander around the pretty old town, exploring the churches and varied architecture, before walking around a section of the wall and enjoying the panoramic views.

Having worked up your appetite, your tour then moves on to Ston's ancient salt pans which are still being worked today after over 2,000 years.  Ston area is also home to oyster farm. Thanks to the unique ecological balance of the area, the farm grows a variety of oyster that have died out elsewhere making these a truly special delicacy. The tour ends with a visit to one of the best restaurants in the area for a three course fish lunch and, of course, a well-earned tasting of the exclusive oysters!
