It may be the old towns Main Street and has a lot to commend it, however we found a maze of small streets of here to have much more to offer

Enjoyed taking a walk down the main street in the Old Town, the cobblestones look even better under the lights at night. The street is full of souvenir shops and stalls, ice-cream stands, and a large number of restaurants, some with very active 'marketing' on the street to entice you to enter their establishment.

If you are in Dubrovnik, you have to walk along the main street of the old town and drink up the atmosphere - make sure to visit the churches and the Rectors palace to get a sense of history. Most of the shops are very touristy and we didn't go into many.

This is a beautiful street, but everything on it is either a souvenir shop or a touristy restaurant. We were there in low season (first week of May) and it was overrun with tourists (including one day with no cruise ships), I can only imagine what it’s like during high season. You have no choice to see it if in... More

Bustling by day, romantic and breathtaking by night! Sit and watch the world go by. Restaurant prices here are a bit dearer than on the side streets but you're paying for the atmosphere
