“Beautiful if slightly touristy.”
Review of Old Town

Reviewed July 14, 2013

The Old Town is a gorgeous city within the city walls and you can tell this place has a lot of history behind it just from seeing the buildings.
Unfortunately, Dubrovnik is very much a tourist attraction with scantily clad teenagers handing out flyers for everything from nightclubs to candle shops!!
The music festival had started mid way through and this was fantastic with street acts and a free street arena to view it from.
Day and night it is definitely worth a visit although mid summer the steps can add to overheating.

Everything just amazing - the setting and feel takes you back in time and at the same time you experience very modern cafes and shops.

Hard to rate Dubrovnik low because it is extraordinarily beautiful, but we were here at the wrong time, in July. Hot and very crowded! Go off-season & enjoy the wall, the lovely maze of alleys and charming sidewalk cafes.

It was a bit crowded but with lots of things to buy. It was great to walk on the city walls and you should try to complete the whole walk as the scenary was different from different places, it was not a difficult walk.

It is nice to walk around inside the walls of The Old Town. Prices of everthing is 10-30% higher inside then outside the walls. Think about that if your going to have lunch or dinner, it is not 10-30% better.
