If you’re in Dubrovnik and want to get some good snaps in a short amount of time, you can do the full panoramic tour within 24 hours, there are three main spots you’ll want to hit (in order):
- Walk along the City Walls (morning)
- Boat trip to Lokrum (afternoon)
- Cable Car to Srđ mountain (evening)
Dubrovnik has become a popular tourist destination, in some cases a little too popular, but it’s easy to see why. Just the trip to get there you are treated to some spectacular views.
Our flight from Berlin left at 6:25 so we were up even earlier. Adam was not a happy camper but the excitement with a little caffeine kept us going.
The Dubrovnik City Walls
After breakfast we head up to the city walls that surround the Old Town to get our bearings. You could fill a small hard drive if you took a picture of everything photo-worthy.
We could only watch other people swimming and having fun for so long before we had to join.
Dubrovnik Cable Car
The cable car is the most comfortable way to get up and down Srđ mountain for a spectacular view of the the city and the Adriatic Sea. You can save some money and pay for a one way ticket and walk down back to town. If you’re like me you’ll want to get away from the masses and the added bonus is that each step down provides a different viewpoint.
The car and the viewpoint, everyone cajoling to get the best pic with their cell phone the will never look at again – I digress.
We went down a rocky trail to get a clear view of the sunset, well worth the walk.
