Famously nicknamed the “Pearl of the Adriatic” and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Dubrovnik is one of Croatia’s star attractions. At about three hours by road from Split, it’s a popular choice for a day trip. Here’s everything you need to know about how to visit Dubrovnik.
Budget travelers looking for a fun, affordable, and hassle-free day can opt for a small-group excursion. Drive along the scenic Dalmatian Coast and enjoy a walking tour of Dubrovnik, taking in highlights such as the Old Town city walls, the magnificent Rector’s Palace, Franciscan Church and Monastery, Sponza Palace, the limestone-paved Stradun, and the striking baroque Dubrovnik Cathedral. Those pressed for time can combine a visit to Dubrovnik with a stop in the medieval town of Ston, famous for its oysters.
There’s a lot to see in Dubrovnik (and on the coastal drive). A private tour to the walled city gives visitors the flexibility to customize the ideal itinerary, which might include visits to Game of Thrones filming locations, free time to tour the city’s architectural wonders, or even a stop in Ston or another of the beautiful towns along Croatia’s Dalmatia coastline.
