Things to do here

Inside the walls of this medieval city, the pedestrianised Old Town is buzzing with life. From historic churches and designer shops, cosy restaurants and modern galleries, to the ancient city wall itself which has withstood centuries of turmoil, the old Croatian city of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the most beautiful and unique cities on the Mediterranean coast.   


To Eat

  1. Restaurant Amfora - An excellent choice for meat and fish lovers. Try the house style beef cheek ‘pasticada’ cooked for 48 hours. All the pastas and breads are freshly prepared onsite in the kitchen. The wines and olive oils are mainly local.
  2. Porat - Located on the busy Gruz Harbour, the restaurant receives a fresh supply of seafood from the fishing boats which dock here each evening, which is prepared and on the table within the hour. Also serves some excellent meat dishes and a vegetarian set-menu, from as little as €20 per person.

To Stay

  1. Scalini Palace - A luxury boutique hotel housed in a renovated 16-century manor just a few steps from the Stradun Promenade in the real heart of the UNESCO protected Old Town.
  2. Hotel Excelsior - A five-minute walk from Dubrovnik’s Old Town, this historic five-star hotel offers stunning views overlooking the sea. Former guests include Sir Roger Moore and Queen Elizabeth 11.

Srd Hill Outdoor Fun

Take an cable car to Srd Hill for breath-taking views of the Old Town and the Adriatic Sea. Go in the evening and you might be lucky enough to see the sun setting over the Elafiti Islands. The journey takes just three minutes. If you’re feeling energetic a 45-minute walk will get you there and there’s a snack bar serving well-deserved refreshments at the top. On a clear day you can see up to 60km.



City Walls Outdoor Fun

A stroll around the medieval city walls is best when the heat of the sun subsides. Enter via the Ploce Gate to tackle the steepest climbs first and to finish with the best views. Stop at the Buza Bar to watch the sun sink into the sea behind the city walls. 

Discover the countryside Tour

Take a leisurely cycle through the Dalmatian countryside on a guided bicycle tour. Take in the views of the Adriatic Sea, pedal past olive groves, vineyards, villages and waterfalls. Learn about the history of the region and relax afterwards at a local winery where you’ll sample fine wines and locally produced cheeses and meats.



Franciscan Monastery & Museum Museum

Located at the Placa, the main street of Dubrovnik, the Romanesque cloister of the Monastery with the oldest working pharmacy in Europe (try their rose cream) and the most valuable library in Croatia is a must-see.
