Dubrovnick cruise port to Old Town/walls/gate

Arriving by cruise ship and wondered what options were available to travel from port to main tourist areas? Is it far? Can we walk? are their busses/taxis?

Thanks in anticipation.

Not sure where your boat will dock, but if its at Gruz, then you will need to get a taxi or take a local bus to the Old Town. If you dock at the Old Town then you will be right there. You can look at the following site to see where your ship will dock....

to piggy back on his question. I went to the site and it says our dock is Berth. Would be need a taxi/ bus from there to the Old Town? If so, about how long would it take.

Thanks a bunch

Hey there--another piggy back--we are arriving @ Gruz port. Cab someone tell me how much for a taxi from Gruz to the "Old Harbor" Where one would catch a ferry to one of the Islands?

Thank you!

There will be a line of taxis waiting for cruise passengers just outside of passport control at the Gruz harbor. The ride to reach the entrance of the old town is about 10 minutes, depending on traffic flow. Fare is 75 Croatian Kuna or 10 Euros. And please remember, no matter what your cruise lines advises carry your passport with you.

Dubrovnik is car free inside of the city walls. the closest one can get to the old harbor is Ploce (plo-cha) gate and walk from there.

We met a couple walking down the gang plank, never met them before, shared a taxi and saved 5 Euros.

We set off straight after breakfast. Suggest you get on to the wall whenever you arrive. It started getting busy by the time we got off.
