We hired a private driver (Pero Klaic) who was recommended by Rick Steves. He did a wonderful job describing the past and recent history of Croatia as he drove us around the area surrounding the old town of Dubrovnik and showed us the sights. He took us to a small restaurant in Cavtat (a short distance from Dubrovnik) for a hearty lunch in a beautiful setting. We had several hours on our own to walk through Dubrovnik and "take in" The Pearl of the Adriatic. Absolutely enchanting!
