Dubrovnik

Plan your Dubrovnik Vacations

“The Pearl of the Adriatic,” Dubrovnik is one of the most popular destinations in Croatia. Synonymous with romance, it was the place where Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor often liked to escape, wandering the marble-paved streets and getting lost in the narrow alleyways to find intimate bars with private nooks for stealing a kiss. Incredibly atmospheric with centuries-old Romanesque, Renaissance, and gothic-style buildings, the historic center is encircled by medieval stone walls.

Visitors can walk right atop the walls that run interrupted for 6365 feet, built to defend the city from various invaders over the years. They’re protected by round towers, bastions, and multiple forts while providing some of the best views over the Old City. If you start from the main entrance at Pile Gate, your first visit is to the sea, the city, and St. Lawrence fortress often called “Dubrovnik’s Gibraltar.”

Don’t miss all our trips, such as the Game of Thrones Tour, Small Ship Cruises and Neretva Valley Tours.

Trip to Dubrovnik FAQs

What is the best time to visit Old City Dubrovnik?

The best time of the day to visit Old City Dubrovnik to avoid the biggest crowds and searing summer heat is either early in the morning, from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., or late afternoon, from around 4 p.m. Be aware that the period between late morning and early afternoon in July and August can be very hot.

What are the essential sites to see in Old City Dubrovnik?

Most visitors start their explorations of the walled Old City by walking through the Pile Gate. Stradun, the main street, will be right in front of you as will Onofrio Fountain. A celebratory symbol that paid tribute to the establishment of the city’s water supply system, it was a remarkable feat of engineering completed in 1438. To the right is Franciscan Monastery which includes one of Europe’s oldest still-functioning pharmacies, dating to 1391. Other top sites include Rector’s Palace, the baroque Church of St. Blaise, and Sponza Palace. Walking atop the city walls is essential too.

How many days do you need in Dubrovnik?

Many of Dubrovnik’s highlights can be experienced in 24 hours, but ideally you’ll have two or three days which will allow you to explore the historic centre and its magnificent architecture, ride the cable car up Mount Srd for a panoramic view over it all, walk the city walls, and take it all in from the water, perhaps on a kayaking tour. You might spend time relaxing on a secluded beach and sampling delicacies like squid ink risotto paired with a tasty wine from the nearby Peljesac Peninsula.

Is there any adventure activities in Dubrovnik?

Along the whole region a multitude of activities are offered on land and in the sea. Rafting, diving, mountaineering with a view of the sea, off-road jeep safari or fishing, birdwatching, tangerine picking… The only problem is to choose the one that is the most fun, and here are our recommendations: kayaking is one of the most popular activities on the Dubrovnik coast, mostly because of the spectacular view of the grandiose Dubrovnik walls from the sea. Another beautiful sight to see by kayak is the Betina caves in front of which you can enjoy yourselves in complete peace and quiet, not far from Dubrovnik.
