My wife loved the town. I have to admit that I thought it was overrated. Since the ship arrived on a Sunday we decided to sign-up for the Panoramic Dubrovnik & City Tour by Coach. The bus met us at the dock and took us to a stop overlooking the city. Needless to say we took some great pictures from that stop. We then were taken to the city where our guide took us on a walking tour. We were provided headsets so we could always hear her no matter where we stood. The town had an earthquake that radically changed it and, of course, it was heavily damaged during the conflict of 1991. I found the town's history and its restaurants interesting but shopping there was dull. We could have stayed longer in the town, but came back to the ship early because there is very little to do there besides walking the walls. Also be aware that some of the stores close at 2:00 PM on Sunday. Read Less

Shuttle from ship to town is $5 round trip. Dubrovnik very easy to walk around within the walled city. You can walk around on the tops of the wall for about $3Euro. It does have ALOT of steps and is steep at times. Walking the main town is easier and has many cobblestones, be careful. We made our way to the docks and took an 1.5 hour water cruise around the city, saw the wall from the sea...it was on a small boat with only 8 people. Came back and had a nice lunch, did some shopping, then time to get back on board. Read Less

The best till last!! We hadn't booked a tour so did the shops, walls and markets by ourselves. It was also fun to use a different currency. Would return to Dubrovnic for a holiday

We visited Dubrovnik on Nov 1st (All Saints/Souls Day) & were horrified to eventually learn that the City Walls were not accessible on Bank Holidays - which was news to the nearby Tourist Information Office! We did however, find a superb site to view the entire walled city, & beyond, which may be of benefit to other visitors. Directions Go through the Pile Gate & up a series of steps to your right (Uz poset on the map). When you get to the road (Zagrebacka), cross over & continue up the next, series of steps (signed Ulica Bernarda Shawa)!!. It's a long, steady climb but really is well worth it. I think we were probably the only ones from 3,400 passengers to get there. Read Less

The port is on the other side of the hill from the old town. It takes you about half an hour to walk there. A local bus stops directly outside the port terminal, and the taxi stand outside the port building is cheaper than the taxi offered directly on the quay side. The coach offered by RCCL cost $5 per person, a taxi is the same price when with 2 and goes where you want. For the local bus you will need Kuna, Euro or Dollars are not accepted. On the way into town are banks with ATM machines. The old town is fairly small and has a few shops, don't expect large shopping streets. We were there on Sunday, so only a few tacky souvenir shops were open. If you want to learn more about Dubrovnik darkest hour, do not miss the small exhibition about the siege of Dubrovnik in the Yugoslav civil war. It left me in tears. The whole town is beautifully restored, although a bit too perfect to my liking. The city walls are fairly expensive to visit, we decided against it, and walked round instead. You should be able to cover all of the old town on foot in 3 hours at most. There are several cheap internet cafes. Read Less

We used the ship's bus service to the old city and then walked the walls.Save your receipt,as they ask for the wall receipt more than once on the top of the walls. Views were spectacular. The walled city is wonderful,too.

Lovely. 20 crotian pp to climb the city walls. If your end up docked, rather than tenderd, Taxi for 10 euros take four.

This was one of my favorite ports. The town and views are beautiful and the Medievel city is exciting. Our tour took us all through the countryside, a stop at a small fishing village for a wonderful seafood lunch. The great wall is the second largest. I believe that this town will eventually be a top tourist vacation place! Read Less

We drank a hot chocolate at a Cafe and talked to some locals who fortunately knew enough English and Italian to be very interesting. We will definitely come back to Dubrovnik Read Less

Again explored on our own. Taxi was 10 Euro total for 4 of us. Walled old city is quite neat to walk around (8 Euro to walk the walls) Great ice cream in the old town for 1 Euro.

Dubrovnik, Croatia, was the highlight of the trip. Our guide "Jack", was informative and very funny. He introduced himself as "Your guide, and my name is... very hard to pronounce." He said using "Jack" would be simpler. We ate at a pizzeria in the old town and were wowed by that. The city walls are amazing and it's almost as if you're on a movie set. The thing I noticed about Croatia is that unlike Italy and Greece, which have true ruins (not much is still standing save for the Acropolis and the coliseum), the historical buildings are still all there, nearly intact. Even though a war was brought to Croatia in 1991, you'd never know it. It is an overwhelming city; we decided that day that if we ever came back to the Mediterranean we would stay in Croatia for the better part of a week. Read Less

It was quite a ways from port to the Pile gate, I was glad to have taken the shuttle bus. Once at the wall, we bypassed the line at the Pile gate and walked down the placa or main pedestrian street to the end (only a few minutes walk). There were groups of school-aged children scraping gum and dirt off the pavement. They seemed quite happy to be doing this bit of community service and when we walked back through they were long gone. The placa is lined with shops, a monastery, and has the Onofrio fountain near the Pile gate and a clocktower and Orlando's column at the opposite end near the Ploce gate. We opted to get on the wall at Ploce since it has less steps up. A group of painters were inconveniently painting the hand railings throughout the wall, which made it harder for older folks to negotiate the steps. The views are incredible and the steps are plentiful, but spaced apart so there's some time to recover your breath between each grouping. I especially liked the sea-side views along the Adriatic. Stunning and an amazing architectural feat. Found the souvenir shops to be expensive. Got a delicious gelato to eat while we waited for the shuttle bus back to the ship. Read Less

This seemed to be the shortest stop, but was really fun. All the stores will take Euro or their Krone. The ATM's there only spit out Krone but when we were there it was about 70Krone to 10Euro so things were fairly cheap. Beautiful town! I think we'll have to come back to visit again! Read Less
