Begin at Arboretum Trsteno, a botanical garden 18km Northwest to Dubrovnik. These gardens were created by the noble family Gozze in the late 15th century who requested ship captains bring back seeds and plants from their travels. By 1492, an aqueduct to irrigate the arboretum was constructed (and is still in use, according to Wikipedia!).  This beautiful site has recently gained international notoriety as one of the major filming locations of the Game of Thrones TV show. These are the gardens where main protagonists weave their plots and exchange secrets at King’s Landing. After Trsteno Arboretum, return to the Dubrovnik Old City for a guided tour of the key sites within the city walls. (Other key filming locations from the Game of Thrones show will be highlighted along the way.)

*The walk through the city will be similar to the day 1 orientation. Because of the potential for repetition, participants should choose one or the other.*
