“Very quiet in winter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Better than some of the other Old Towns (Zadar, Split etc) but very quiet in winter, with a lot of restaurants etc closed. Also, I found Dubrovnik extremely expensive, especially compared to the rest of Croatia. A main meal was minimum 100KN!

“Mike in Dubrovnik”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Not to be missed, this area is ideal to wander around, very interesting architecture, plenty of places to eat and drink, a maze of narrow streets off of the main road.

“A must see.”

The war passed most of us by, but when you visit you appreciate what these people had to endure This is a beautiful town again and well worth a visit.

“Definitely must see, but sligthly losing authenticity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Very nice old town, which to my opinion is at it's best in late spring and early autumn. And spring better than autumn, as the locals are not tired yet of the tourists ;-). In summer so crowded, especially when 4 cruiseships arrive in one day and unload thousands of tourists. Prices are getting higher.

Stunning old buildings and churches. Sadly very touristy with shops selling tourist tatt and overpriced restaurants.
