Cruise tips you can trust
Dubrovnik is an endearingly picturesque Adriatic Sea port town with a rich history.
The tightly quartered buildings inside the city walls are photogenic. Narrow, stone streets add to the charm.
Ancient City Walls
They are Dubrovnik's icon. Leisurely amble on the pathway that runs on top of the rampart on the tall, thick, long stone walls. You'll have a striking view of Dubrovnik's old buildings.
