What to do in Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is where our Dalmatian Coast Hiking & Kayaking tour ends. It’s a lovely town to relax for a few days, taking in the sunshine and Mediterranean culture. It is hilly, but compact and best explored on foot as the Old Town is closed to cars. Buses run regularly if you hope to venture further along the coast, and taxis are also readily available—though can be quite expensive. As always, we recommend checking with your hotel concierge for advice on the best way to reach any particular destination.

Explore Old Town and the Market
Our tour culminates with a guided tour of Old Town and includes the Stradun Promenade and other nearby sites, Pile Gate, and the fortified walls. However, there is more to see and do here, so head out to wander the quaint streets, enjoy an aperitif, and stop to explore as you like! The oldest market in Dubrovnik is located in the prominent, baroque square of Gunduliceva poljana.

War Photo Limited
Located in Old Town, this gallery features two floors of photography exhibits by world-renowned photojournalists covering recent and ongoing wars and conflicts. The photographs are intended to educate and expose the myth of war and power, and expose the impact it has on civilians and combatants alike.

Mt. Srd and Cable Car
Enjoy breathtaking views of Dubrovnik and the Adriatic Sea via a cable car ride up to the top of Mount Srd. There is also an option to hike in either direction. Atop Mt. Srd you can also tour the Croatian Homeland War Museum housed inside of the Imperial Fortress.

Lokrum Island 
Ferries regularly depart from Dubrovnik’s Old Port, and it is a quick 15-minute trip to Lokrum Island, where you can spend the day walking the forested trails and swimming in the lagoon or off the rocky beaches.

Day Trip to Montenegro
While here, why not visit one more country full of natural wonder? Montenegro sits just south of Croatia; most day tours take you to the Bay of Kotor, about an hour’s drive from Dubrovnik. Check with your hotel concierge for last-minute options, or plan ahead to extend your stay independently!

Where to eat?
Offering up Dalmatian food with an Asian flair, Azur is relaxed, fun, and innovative all at once. Reservations recommended.

A short taxi ride from Old Town, Pantarul comes highly recommended by locals, travelers, and Michelin! Contemporary, global cuisine with a nod to Croatian favorites. Reservations recommended.
