Dubrovnik offers an unusual blend of modern culture and ancient traditions. Marble-smooth polished limestone streets, a labyrinth of alleyways, and breathtaking architecture compose the unique atmosphere of the Old Town. You’ll experience a true variety of sightseeing, leisure, and outdoor adventures here. Dubrovnik’s most stunning feature is the 82-foot tall city wall which extends more than a mile. Game of Thrones fans will be in luck, as we offer a special tour to local set locations. King’s Landing never looked so good! There’s a rich selection of live performances for music lovers here, as concerts are performed daily, and in July and August the Dubrovnik Summer Festival of music, theatre and dance brings incredible performers from around the world. The nightlife is also exciting, with restaurants, cafes and bars that will keep you socializing until dawn. You’ll be staying in beautiful accommodation within short walking distance to all the major sites, so you’ll be able to sample a little of everything. But there are also several exciting day trips and cruises to enjoy. From kayaking through hidden coves to an authentic Croatian cooking class, vineyard tours, and trips as far afield as Montenegro, you’ll have more than enough to fill your itinerary.

Day 1

Day 1 - Arrival in Dubrovnik

After your flight arrives in Dubrovnik, we will have someone meet you at the airport and bring you to your accommodation. Duration of the drive is about 30 minutes.

Our representative will then meet with you to answer any questions you have and to get you settled for the rest of your trip.

Romantic Dubrovnik

Suggestion to explore on your own

From real romance to outdoor fun, there’s something for every couple in Dubrovnik. We have two favorite places to watch the sunset: the first is Buza Bar, where you’ll have excellent cocktails and snacks and an incredible view as dusk comes on. Restaurant 360° perched atop the city walls might be even more impressive, with unbeatable views of the city and the Adriatic. This restaurant has even been awarded a Michelin star! It’s one of the most incredible panoramas in the entire region.

Dubrovnik Private Walking Tour

Dubrovnik Private Walking Tour

Included in your vacation package price.

Enjoy a private walking tour into the historic heart of Dubrovnik’s Old Town. Visit the city’s major landmarks and hear stories of how Dubrovnik became one of the world’s most prosperous and advanced maritime republics. A walking tour of Old Town will take you to its elegant main street and most of its most important sights. This is the perfect way to get oriented in the Old Town, and will give you the best insight into the rich history of Dubrovnik.


Activity Level : Light
Duration : 1 hour 30 minutes

After Your Tour: City Walls, a Cable Car, and Lokrum Island

Suggestion to explore on your own

Continue your day in Dubrovnik after the tour with a ride on the cable car up Mount Srd' to take in the views. You'll find the bottom station of the cable car by exiting the city through the Buža Gate. Walking the circumference of the ancient city walls themselves is a way to get another view of the town. It's a bit of a climb to the top of the Minceta Tower, but highly recommended.
If you also want to see Dubrovnik from afar, then take a boat trip to Lokrum Island, an oasis of nature and tranquility just ten minutes from the Old Town harbor. This island has peacocks and monastery ruins hidden among its pine, cypress, and olive trees, as well as a diverse botanical garden.

Eat Like a Local

Suggested activities for an additional cost, depending on your choice

As Paul Prudhomme said - "You don't need a silver fork to eat good food". This is especially clear in Dubrovnik, where you don't have to go to a fancy restaurant to have a great meal. Experience something completely different while in Dubrovnik. Join us for a dinner in Marija's home and eat as locals do or go to Konavle region and enjoy a cooking class with an authentic family, we are sure you will enjoy either experience.

Eat and Meet with Locals Small Group Dinner

Eat and Meet with Locals Small Group Dinner

Suggested activities for an additional cost, depending on your choice

Looking for a unique dining experience in Dubrovnik? The best and the most authentic meal you can have in Dubrovnik is definitely with a local family. We'll secure you a spot for a Dalmatian dinner experience with Marija, an expert home cook whose cooking and food knowledge was recognized by the Wall Street Journal and National Geographic. Indulge in an enchanted evening of learning about real Dubrovnik and Dalmatian cuisine. Marija will prepare a multi-course meal with a local highlight, peka - a traditional style of cooking usually translated as "under the bell" and accompanied with great local wines. Our marketing director, a gourmand, described this as the best meal he's ever eaten in Croatia. Find out why!

Dubrovnik by Night

Suggestion to explore on your own

One of the world's most attractive cities, Dubrovnik is always an interesting place to enjoy a night out. Nightlife here begins after sundown as people start to walk up and down the main street in a kind of a customary stroll before the good times get rolling. After a few promenades you should head to one of the many bars or pubs. At the moment, the most popular club is Culture Club Revelin. Located in the womb of the fortress Revelin, it merges the unique feel of the ancient fortress with the sounds of modern music.

Day 4 - Traveling to Hvar by Ferry

Today you're off to Hvar, Europe's sunniest island! Our representative in Dubrovnik will provide you with tickets for the ferry. You will be picked up from your accommodation by your private driver who will take you to the port in plenty of time for your departure. Total duration of the journey is about 3,5 hours. This ferry service is the fastest and most convenient way to get to Hvar but if you would prefer taking the opportunity to see some sights along the way, for additional fee there's an option of taking a private transfer to Split and a ferry to Hvar from there. Along the way you can stop to explore Ston, the oyster capital of Croatia, or Mostar in Bosnia to see the famously reconstructed bridge. Please note that this is a full day transfer.

The Roman Emperor Diocletian made Split his home in the 4th Century AD, building a vast palace complex on the waterfront that stands to this day. In fact several of the accommodation options we offer in Split are nestled inside its ancient walls. These days there is an embankment in front of Diocletian's palace but the water used to go right up to the main wall. It's on this man-made strip of land that you'll find the Riva, a pedestrian promenade bustling with life. Split's UNESCO listed Old Town is contained within these old walls and is a pedestrian-only maze that it is quite easy, but fun, to get lost in. Who know what romantic hidden cafés you might find in one of the narrow streets and alleyways? To get the best out of your time in Split, however, we recommend taking a tour with a local guide. Split is very well connected for flights, with an international airport a half hour drive away and is a popular stopping point for our guests on their way between Dubrovnik and the islands of Hvar, Vis, or Korcula, all easily reached by a ferry from Split's port. If you base yourself in Split for a few days, you will find it is also perfect located for visits to some of Croatia's most stunning national parks.

In Split You Won't Want to Split

Suggestion to explore on your own

Split may not have the most romantic name in the world, but is still a lovely city for a romantic holiday, with a perfect mix of vibrant nightlife and fun outdoor activities. The landscape here is incredible, poised just on the edge of the Adriatic. If you come here during the Split Summer Festival, you’ll get to enjoy the absolutely unique atmosphere as you watch theater and opera on Peristil Square but you can enjoy the city at any time of year. Renting bikes is a great way to explore the area together, and Marjan Hill is especially inviting, with views over the city and the sea. This is a wonderful place to stay active together, but you can also just relax and lounge on the beach, or enjoy a dinner at Dvor, one of the city's most romantic restaurants.
