Planning Your Visit
How many days to spend in Dubrovnik?
You can see the major attractions within the walled city in two full days, but consider Dubrovnik as a base to explore the surrounding area on some day-trips. This option also allows you to enjoy spending more time in the old town in the evening.
You'll only need your own two feet when visiting the attractions in the old town. At first it may seem like a complex maze to navigate, but it's fun to explore. You'll find one side of the Stradun is flat, while the other side is steep in parts. Buses 1A, 1B and 1C run regularly between the old town and the main bus station.
Where to stay in Dubrovnik
Staying within the old town is an ideal place to be, but suggested areas outside the city walls include Lapad and Ploce, the later being a bit hilly with nice views over historical Dubrovnik.

- The cruise ships and 'Game of Thrones' fans flood the city from May to August. Its best to visit during the late Spring when you can wander the city freely and the weather warm but not yet at peak heat. Keep in mind the boats to the islands are infrequent during the off-season.

What people are saying about Dubrovnik
This was an amazing day trip! Ivanna was great and gave lots of history while traveling to Bosnia. Traveling with two kids (6&11 years old) and they had plenty of stops along the way so we could let them off. The waterfall and old town were amazing views. So glad we booked this day trip. They play Med us up and dropped us off which was great so we didn’t have to find where to go. Highly recommend this day trip. Would have loved more time at the waterfall but given the time frame can see why that’s not possible.
Superb experience! Davor was an amazing guide, fun and really engaging. He is actually an actor himself and has been on various movie sets in Dubrovnik so could provide us with some interesting insights of what is going on behind the scenes.
Interesting and isightful tour, given by Davor. A litttle bit of historical context of the people and formation of Croatia and the old city as it is today. Definitely recommended.
Disco was a great tour guide, sharing interesting stories and history during our drive. Mostar was very interesting and the falls were beautiful. Would definitely recommend!
