Trsteno the oldest arboretum in that part of the world over 500 years old. 300 species of exotic and decorative trees and shrubs that date back to the Renaissance. Very hard walking to and from where you park.

Of particular interest for its variety of trees and, in particular the enormous plane tree on the main road by the entrance to the place. This tree was a finalist in the European tree of the year contest. The gardens themselves are not especially interesting....More

Gardens were very quiet and peaceful. Pleasant to walk round with some stunning views. Some amazing trees, all labelled. Worth a walk down to the picturesque harbour. Pity there were no refreshments in October. Got a taxi from Dubrovnik but got a bus back.

Lovely place to walk around for an hour or two, with some good coastal views and a nice fountain centrepiece. Plus of course a GoT filming location. It’s worth making the effort to come here, particularly if you have your own car.

We visited as part of a game of thrones tour and it was spectacular to see where they filmed some of the beautiful garden scenes. Aside from this though, the garden is beautiful and would definitely recommend a visit.

If the heat of the Adriatic and the bustle of Dubrovnik get too much for you, then head here! Get a bus 12 or 15 from Gruz main bus station, they are cheap, clean and reasonably frequent. Look for the brown tourist signs, or ask...More

I have just seen pictures of Trsteno Arboretum in a magazine and would love to visit it while we are in Cavtat. (We fly out tomorrow 14 July) Is there public transport that will get us there, or do any of the local excursions do a visit there? Thanks in advance for any answers. Julie :)

Does anyone know if you have to pay to get into the Trsteno Arboretum? I am trying to plan a "Game of Thrones day" when in Dubrovnik and am looking at booking a Viator Tour. I wondered whether to upgrade my tour to include the arboretum (for double the price which seems a bit excessive to me) or just visit the arboretum on our own and walk round leisurely? If tickets aren't extortionate I feel this might be the better option but opinions would be appreciated.

Yes you do have to pay to get in. I can't remember exactly how much, but I think it was in the region of 50 kunas.
