“Lots of activity”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

The City Harbor is definitely one of the most bustling areas of Dubrovnik's Old Town. Even though we felt like we'd seen all there was to see, we somehow kept ending up here each day. The port is a fun place to watch boats depart and dock, drop of passengers, feel a cool breeze. It's also pretty fun, when cruise ships come in, to watch how many round-trips the boats take to drop off passengers.

If you walk along the walls, you can get out to a jetty with a few benches. It's nice and breezy and has great views of the harbor, the mountains, and the closest island. A few people were swimming in this area too, but the water looked pretty rough.

We took a boat ride from this port, which was fun and all, but nothing too exciting. It's cool to go past the walls from the outside and see the island up close. But there wasn't any narration or explanation of what we seeing. A fun activity, but it seems they just run those boats to maximize profits (understandably).

“Cool Ride”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We took a ride on the big old replica of a pirate's ship. It took us around the harbor and an island (can't remember name). Just relaxing. There was one place we saw a bunch of older nudists on some rocks. Not up close but we thought it was funny anyway. That's their way in Europe though.

“Sailing in to the port”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Stunning scenery as you sail in to port. Be up on deck early to see it all. We were fortunate to see some amazing ships docked as we cruised past them.

“beautiful and romantic”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Stunning harbor with great potential for photos. The water is crystal clear and two very nice restaurants specializing in fish on the harbor itself.
