I visited Dubrovnik as one of the ports on a cruise..... and ooohh, there just wasn't enough time to explore so much beauty!! What a mesmerizing city! The Old Town is absolutely spectacular.... it feels like you've just stepped through time, being surrounded by beautiful old buildings. So many little hidden alleys to explore... but watch out, it all goes... More

Lovely old city but be prepared for when the Cruise Ships arrive as getting in through the gate can take time. Lovely restaurants and coffee shops and the usual gift shops. If you go to Dubrovnik you have to go here.

I was blessed with beautiful December weather (short sleeves during the day), which I feel really gave this place justice. Fewer people and lower prices made getting around easier with fewer hassles. I even got some amazing photos that wouldn't be the same in the height of summer, with hordes of people all around. There are places to "hide out"... More

We travelled on the local bus from Cavtat to Dubrovnik and got off on the main road, ask the driver to drop at Old town, and walked down lots of steps till we came to the wonderful old town of Dubrovnik , well worth a trip, we were there when there was a cruise ship in so it was busy.... More

Dubrovnik Old Town is a wonderful tangle of winding alleyways and steep staircases. Extremely easy to lose your bearings, but you're never far from the main thoroughfare or the city walls. The main street (Stradun) is uncomfortably crowded especially when the cruiseliners are in port, but wander off into one of the side streets and sit in one of the... More

We really enjoyed walking around and in this old city. We found great little shops and places to have a coffee. It's an impressive area. We walked out on the pier area and enjoyed sitting there watching the sea and people watching too.

You cannot come to Dubrovnik without visiting the Old town. Hurry up because it becomes every year a bit more expensive. This ia a wonderful place, full of excellent restaurant. The only bad point is the number of shops for tourists ! All the same. And avoid at all price buying clothes. It's the most expensive place in town !... More

Old town is achingly beautiful, with unique old architecture against the sapphire sea. We spent a delightful afternoon walking the wall and sitting in an outdoor cafe. Sacrifice fashion for comfort and safety by wearing athletic shoes. High heels ruined a few women's visits.

There are no words to describe the beauty of Dubrovnik old city,it is faboulous but try to visit it in the lower season or if you happen to be there in the summer,spend the morning on the beach and enjoy the city in the afternoon.It becomes very crowded when the cruiseships arrive in the morning.Don't miss the night walk through...
