At Sipan, you'll see houses made of stone, plus rustic churches and castles. Known for its numerous eagles and excellent vineyards, the island was a Roman settlement one millennium ago, which became a summer residence of 15th-century Croatian nobility.

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.
