Drive up to Mount Srd vs cable car

Hi there,

Four of us plan to be in Dubrovnik in May and will have a rental car with us. I believe you can drive up to Mount Srd, but also read that the road up there is quite difficult (perhaps dangerous) to drive so we are thinking of just park our car somewhere and take the cable car up. Does anyone have any though or suggestion based on their experience?

Thanks in advance,

I have driven up three or four times without any problems. In May it should be quiet, but it's possible you may need to reverse if you meet traffic coming the other way. It's not a problem, but be prepared and keep s good eye out for passing places unless you need one. One final thing to be prepared for is that coming up from Dubrovnik the turn off the main road is a tight hairpin.

Look at google earth to see the narrow road you will be on....I have not done it but my brother has without any problems.

I think if you're a confident driver then go for it.
