We were a family group of 7 adults taking an Adriatic tour. We got off the ship and took the local bus to town. It was fairly easy. Then, we walked in the gate, paid a fee at the ticket counter, and walked up the stairs to the top. The path at the top of the walls is one-way, but... More

Dubrovniks' old town is simply over run with tourists and all the negative aspects that tourism can bring along with it. There are throngs of people all day every day and getting through the gates is a crush at times. The unfortunate people that actually live within the walls have no places to shop except for those hawking t-shirts, ice... More

A great place to wander, especially later in the evening. Or somewhere to sit and have dinner with a bottle of wine. I would avoid it around 10-4 each day, when the cruise ships drop off thousands and thousands of people. Do your 'out of town' activities during that time and then enjoy the old town once when it's a... More

Dubrovnik old town is a truly memorable place. It is internationally very popular with both young and old rich or otherwise. My wife and I have traveled the world and can advise the readers that this town with its history and ancient buildings takes some beating.

This place is magical. Streets full of lovely places to eat and drink. No end of history and culture. Go first thing or stay later in the evening to avoid the cruise ship crowds.

The old town of Dubrovnik is postcard picturesque. The town has lovely little cobbled streets lined with shops, churches and historic builings. It is a little bit of a tourist trap, however, this does not deter from its charms. In my opinion, the best way to see the old town is by walking the old city walls. This will cost... More

The old city is interesting for a short visit for the historical perspective. Buy some dried figs and sugared orange peels from a vendor in the market stalls, check some of the small streets and don't miss going up to "walk the wall".
