From hikes along the medieval city walls to sunset sailing trips, the coastal Croatian city of Dubrovnik is full of fun things to do. Plan ahead to experience the city’s history, sea activities, and plentiful day trip options. Here are a few ways to spend three days in Dubrovnik.
Day 1: History and Panoramic Views
Discover the architecture and history of Dubrovnik’s Old Town during one of several introductory walking tours. Choose between itineraries focused on landmarks within the medieval city walls (including a stroll on top of the walls), a cable car journey for panoramic city and sea views, and a themed tour for Game of Thrones fans (follow a guide to see the places in Dubrovnik where the popular HBO series was filmed).
Day 2: Sun, Sea, and Wine
Explore beyond the city walls with excursions on the sea and out into the countryside. Relax with a scenic cruise to the Elafiti Islands or get some exercise with tour that includes sea kayaking or snorkeling. Visit four family-owned wineries in the countryside of the Konavle Valley and sample Croatian wines during a wine-themed tour, moving between the wineries by mini-train and relaxing over a traditional Croatian lunch. Alternatively, travel through the Dubrovnik countryside by bike to visit quiet villages, peaceful waterfalls, and a winery.
Day 3: Adventurous Day Trips
Maximize time in Croatia with a day trip to a nearby city. Explore other areas of Croatia with a journey to the coastal city of Split or join a small group for a tour of Korcula Island. Beyond the Croatian border, day trips are available to Montenegro and Bosnia. Choose between a private tour that can be customized (such as a private tour to Sarajevo), a themed trip like a white-water rafting trip to Montenegro, or a scenic journey to the historic Bosnian city of Mostar. Skip the hassle of renting a car and let your guide take care of the driving.
