From tourist spots to off-the-beaten-path ones, here are the best things to do in Dubrovnik. This itinerary helps you plan your trip.

 

“Walk the City Walls”

dubrovnik-city-walls

The definitive ‘must’ on any visit to Dubrovnik, the medieval city walls are best explored with a full-circuit, 2 km walk along the battlements. Affording ever-changing views out to sea and over the Old Town, they offer excellent photo opportunities. We suggest walking the walls earlier in the morning or late afternoon.

 

“Visit Lokrum Island”

lokrum-island

Beautiful scenery, great nature, unbelievable sights. Travelers are treated to an island that feels truly unspoiled and natural – a rare gem in the modern world! The island has numerous sights to see – a monastery (with Game of Thrones replica Iron Throne and info about filming), and a fort at the top of the island (with stunning views of Dubrovnik Old Town). There is plenty of space to sunbathe on flat rocks, with easy access to the sea. The island is covered in trees and even has a botanical garden with eucalyptus and olive trees. There are several cafes and restaurants for refreshments/food and drinks! The peaceful green paradise is home to peacocks and tame rabbits that roam freely without a care in the world. The arrival and departure to and from the island are organized from the Dubrovnik Old Port. A ferry runs every half an hour.

 

“Sail with Karaka”
