The Old City of Dubrovnik is fascinating and is well worth a visit. When in the area it is also standard to walk along the old city wall. At around 20 Euros it's not exactly cheap bit it's takes around 90 minutes to complete. However, a word of warning - don't leave the wall during your walk. We experienced a... More

Had a nice stay in Dubrovnik Old Town. it's clean and well laid out with plenty of attractions. It did get very busy in the mornings when the tour buses were arriving (even in september so I dread to think what it's like in August!) so avoid the Stradun around the morning if you dont want to be pushed and...

Old Town is one of the most beautiful towns I've ever been to. I couldn't believe how clean it was. It even smelled good. The people were so friendly and beautiful. I only wished I had more time to visit.

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.
