We recommend going as early as possible (8 am) to avoid the worst sun and masses. Also we recommend the entrance at the maritime museum: you have a quit and stunning start before joining the masses about halfway at the pile gate. Also a tip:...More

At first glance the entrance price is a bit steep, as are the steps you encounter along the route. But it took us 2 hours to get round the entire circumference, obviously stopping to take photos, admire the view or let people pass through narrow...More

This is a must if you visit the old town, you need comfortable walking shoes and either do it in morning or early evening as sun gets really hot. Make sure you take water, if you forget there are small stands

Take good shoes and head there in the morning or the evening as there is little shade (and remember a hat). For us the views were better from the walls than from the cable car. You need to be aware of your surroundings when on...More

I would definitely use a private guide who can help you cover as much ground as possible for your time in Dubrovnik. I will search my files for the name of the guide we had. Well worth the money. Larry
