Ston/ Slano Vacations & Tours
The medieval, fortified city of Ston is situated on a cape of land, connecting the Peljesac Peninsula to the mainland. It is well known for its very well preserved town walls, its salt works and its appetizing oysters. The ancient city walls are considerably longer than those of Dubrovnik at 3 miles and sometimes referred to as the ‘European Walls of China.’ Today Ston is a sleepy, laid-back fishing town with some dramatic views, olive groves and absolutely stunning coastline. Many of our small-ship cruises, visit the area and you will also be able to sample the award-winning oysters at the oyster farm in Mali Ston.
Slano is an authentic village with a small harbor in the bay of the same name. In the hills surrounding the village, there are many Greek and roman ruins and monuments, with the most prominent being the Roman castrum at the Gradina Hill.
