“Beautiful Old Town and Wall”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Fortunately we visited Dubrovnik's Old Town in early March before the tourist season got fully underway. Given the number of people here at this time of year, it's hard to imagine what it will look like in a couple of months. This is a great walking town, with lots to see, including the Rector's Palace, a Franciscan Monastery. Lots of restaurants and little shops, and naturally, all geared towards the tourist. Don't miss the walk along the wall while there. Definitely worthwhile for the spectacular views in every direction.

“magical”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

This is the 2nd time I was in old town in 6 months. The first time, was on a Celebrity Cruise ship shore excursion. 6,000 people crowding into a small area. It was terrible. But this time, I went at night. The full moon and the illuminated walls were just magical. Lots of restaurants open. We had the town to ourselves. Old Town does have residence. And they do come out and about in the evening after the tourist leave.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

The old town of Dubrovnik was one of the best places I have visited. It was fun to explore, clean, history rich and I had a wonder meal at a Bosnian restaurant. It was expensive though, so be careful if you are traveling on a budget.
