  • The Maritime museum inside the fortress was quite interesting. It is a nice point halfway along the city walls (if you start at Pile Gate) that you could stop off and look in as a bit of a break.  more »

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.
