“Beautiful but busy!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

The old town is an amazing place with loads of little back streets which you definitely need to explore to find the best places to eat and shop! They are also much cheaper than the main streets!
The place is busy though- somedays busier than others depending how many cruise ships are in... We had one day that was a bit quieter which was nice :-)
There's plenty to see and do or it's also a really nice place to just sit and watch the world go by!

“VERY crowded”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

When you're walking the streets of the town you don't really get the benefit of the history as it's so crowded and the streets are so narrow. Walk the walls instead - a better perspective and more interesting. Lots of cafes and restaurants, a nice harbour and soem pretty impressive churches. Most places of interest have admission charges.

“beautiful but crowded”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

The old town has been beautifuly restored but it is very busy and full of tourists from the cruise ships that dock in Dubrovnik for the day. It calms down later in the day and that is probably the best time to visit.

“crazy place”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Clean, but busy with cruize ship passangers during the day,
the fairytale location takes time to grow on you, then you start to see the tell tale signs left over from the Balkan war. Brings home what happened, then you have a beer -cocktail and the good natured people bring you home again.
