When Croatia is a stop on a European cruise itinerary, more often than not the port of call is Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik, dubbed as the Pearl of the Adriatic, is one of Croatia’s most recognizable and famous cities. However more and more European cruise itineraries are also including Split, Croatia.
Here’s some ideas on how to spend the day in Dubrovnik:
The city walls are considered to be one of the most grandiose fortification monuments in Europe They stretch completely around Dubrovnik’s Old Town, a distance totaling 1.2 miles and a walk on top of the walls ( there’s a charge of about $10) is a must do on your visit to Dubrovnik. Bring a water bottle and try to head up early or the heat can be quite uncomfortable.
