Described as the pearl of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik will not fail to impress with great City walls rising out of the brilliant Adriatic against a backdrop of steep mountainsides. Within the walls of the old town are some fine architecture and lively streets crammed with shops, cafes and restaurants. Walk the City walls to enjoy the beautiful roofscape of the old town and the seascape beyond. Visit the Franciscan and Dominican monasteries and stroll down the cobbled streets and alleyways or relax in the cafes. During the summer months the Dubrovnik festival hosts concerts on most nights providing music of all types.

Gruz is the port area of Dubrovnik where the cruise ships dock and where mega-yachts tie up at the quayside around this large and sheltered natural harbour. The gentle banks of Gruz harbour was where the Dubrovnik noblemen chose to build their fine summer palaces to escape the heat and bustle of the ancient city. Many of these stunning Rennaisance buildings are still standing and some have been renovated as luxury hotels or spectacular private houses. Today Gruz is a shopping and commercial centre for Dubrovnik as well as a living museum of Rennaisance architecture.
Dubrovnik offers everything from sophisticated restaurants in spectacular waterside locations to simple bistros in alleyways and side streets of the old town. The choice is endless. We can provide you with our recommendations
