    Section of the Old Town, but so close to reach it in 15 minutes in the crowded bus 6. It is a relatively quiet area, with small beaches and beautiful walks around the sea. Highly recommended.

Where to stay in Dubrovnik

One of Croatia's major tourist destinations, Dubrovnik remains one of the most expensive cities in the country, especially if you wish to stay in the old town at peak season. You can choose from upscale hotel rooms just east of the old town, but for budget-friendly beds you may have to go as far as the outskirts of town. Many locals rent small rooms in their private homes, so look for rental signs in windows or check with the city's tourist office.
