For those looking to live outside the tiny Old City, upscale Ploče sits just to the east on the waterfront, while the Lapad peninsula, 3 km to the north, is popular for its walkable promenades and bay views.   

Many residents have moved out from the Old Town and now rent their apartments to visitors.  

While in Dubrovnik, you will be faced with a long list of sights you will be tempted to explore. Here are some tips.

The Old Town's massive Gradske Zidine (city walls) were begun in the 13th century and reinforced over the years

Stroll Along The Harbor Front

• Relax In A Cafe 

All summer long, Dubrovnik's many cafes and restaurants have tables outside - many within the walls of the Old Town, - where you can sit under an umbrella and enjoy a seafood lunch or a drink

Coming Ashore
In Dubrovnik almost all ships dock at Cruz Harbor, which is 4 km (2.5 miles) from Stari Grad (Old Town).  

The trip to Dubrovnik's Old Town takes about 10 minutes by taxi or 30 too 30 minutes on foot. You can also take a public bus. There is a taxi stand at the harbor. 


A few smaller ships might still tender passengers ashore in the Old Town, where you are just steps from everything that Dubrovnik has to offer.


You do not really need to rent a car to explore Dubrovnik centre. All the main sites lie within the city walls, an area that is compact and car-free.
