Old town Dubrovnik is like nowhere else we have ever been. The wall, the cathedrals, the narrow streets and tons of restaurants and shops.

Plenty of lanes, shops, restaurants, bars to amble around and visit. No graffiti, no litter, and everyone very friendly. A true delight to visit and wander. Make sure you visit the lane of wonderful restaurants not visible from the main street. They are to the left side of the main street up a short flight of steps.

Lots of character and history inside Dubrovnik's ancient walls! The old town is quite small, so it is difficult to get lost, but the tight, cobbled pathways make for an interesting exploration. Because it is so small but popular, try to visit early/late in the day as to avoid the crowds. There are many historic buildings to admire but there... More

Possibly the most stunning city I've every been to. There's lots of little street to wander down and amazing arcitecture to admire. The old town is small so you really can't get lost. Lots of restaurants and cafes for refreshment. The ones in the main thoroughfares and squares can be a bit expensive, my advice would be to go down... More

I loved how the character of the town was retained and how clean it was with not a scrap of litter to be seen. Also I loved the narrow little streets and the abundance of cafes and restaurants and the fact that the streets were pedestrianised. I didn't like that at times it was overcrowded especially when cruise ships visited.

This town is awesome!! Great shops, restaurants, gelato :-), and attractions. There is a lot do here. Don't be afraid to climb the steps and check out the shops and restaurants on high. You can spend two days easily to check out all of the historic buildings.

can't describe how cool this place is...avoid when the cruise ships unload- they are talking about limiting the cruise ship volumes which is a great idea because they totally swarm/overwhelm what is a beautiful place. This is touristy but charming, lots of great restaurants and scenery locals are charming and very helpful

Dubrovnik old town was very unique and very beautiful. I can't say that the town was like anything I have seen so far in Europe. The wall that surrounds the city and the rocks that make up the majority of the buildings give this town a really special feel. The food was excellent and there is plenty of shopping and... More
