A Week Around Dubrovnik

Possibly the most spectacular setting in the Adriatic...

As you wander through Dubrovnik’s perfectly preserved medieval streets and up and down the narrow, cobbled alleyways, history seeps into your senses and your imagination takes flight.

A walled city of intriguing narrow streets, squares and fine buildings in a spectacular setting. Its monumental walls, towers and fortresses cradle a unique historical and architectural heritage in a 21st century city. Although the main streets have been turned over to shops, bars and restaurants, people still live in the upper alleys where the sounds and smells of family life spill out into the steep and seemingly endless staircases and along winding narrow passages.

The high walls of Dubrovnik give us a bird’s eye view of not only this beautiful terracotta roofed city but also of the many quiet, secluded bays dotted around the peninsula which are popular spots with the local fishermen. By cable car we soar higher above the city to the summit of Mount Srd where from the top we are offered panoramic views of the city below, to the bays beyond, across to the Elafiti Islands and into the Adriatic. 

Described by many as the high point of any holiday to Dubrovnik the Elafiti Islands are but a short boat journey away. The traditionally relaxed way of Adriatic life can be experienced on these small, hilly and forested islands. Ston has the second longest defensive walls in the world - second to the Great Wall of China and with its many churches and links to the ancient salt trade will make for an interesting and varied day.

Spring brings wild flowers that colour the surrounding hills whereas autumn brings the traditional markets overflowing with fruit and vegetables of the old town. Whichever time of year you decide to visit we will explore the half-forgotten trails of the countryside, the Elafiti Islands, Mount Srd or visit the charming seaside town of Cavtat, there is plenty to see and do all from our specially selected hotel.
