Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cavtat Old Town and Fort Lovrijenac. Popular historic sites such as Dubrovnik City Walls and The Franciscan Church and Monastery are in your itinerary. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Old Town, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and step off the mainland to explore Island of Lokrum.
