Not to be missed! This was the highlight of our trip to Dubrovnik. I was unable to walk the old city walls and was glad in a way, as the views from the mountain surpassed those available from the walls for less effort and fewer crowds. We had coffee in the cliffside cafe`, as usual the coffee was cold, but the waiter was really charming and brought some hot milk. The panoramic views of the islands and the mountains are spectacular. Seafarers in all their guises passed before us and we could have spent the day there, but other attractions beckoned! Our tour rep. lunched at the restaurant and was very happy with the food/ service. I am not good with heights, but the car takes about 3 mins. to reach the top and by facing the mountain on both trips(sad but necessary) I had no problems and was rewarded by the views on arrival.
The city walls require a lot of physical effort, lots (and lots) of steps and most of the time we were in the old town there was at least two cruise ships in the bay. With an average of 2,ooo passengers disembarking to sightsee you can imagine how crowded the walls become!
The cable car is a far superior way to take in the views in comfort.
