The Adriatic city of Dubrovnik, in southern Croatia, has one of Europe’s most picturesque medieval districts, known for its red rooftops and even more famous today for being a filming location of the Game of Thrones TV series. A tour of film sites is even a Dubrovnik shore excursion.
If you have already toured Dubrovnik’s Old Town, other shore excursions include kayaking in the clear Adriatic Sea or checking out surrounding coastal towns like Cavtat.
You’ll dock in one of three places. The port in Gruz, a neighborhood about 2 miles (3 km) north of Old Town, is the most common, but depending on the size of your ship and daily port traffic, you may dock in the Old Town harbor or anchor in the bay and be tendered into Old Town. If you dock at the Gruz port, take a shuttle to Old Town if your ship provides one, or take a bus or taxi, both available outside the port.
