Our first full day was spent in Dubrovnik where we took the ship provided bus ($5 total pp) to Old Town and did a self-guided walking tour of the wall. When they let you off the bus, walk UP the street (uphill) slightly and look for a grocery about 500 feet from where they let you off that has a huge sign outside that says COKE. Just to the left of that, tucked into the corner next to a travel agency, is an ATM...get yourself some Kuna...just $20 worth...there are more ATMs if you need more, but this is the only one between you and the closest entrance to the walls. Sometimes they'll take euro or dollar, but don't count on it. Let me warn you...there are a bazillion steps on that wall! If you aren't at least passably fit, don't expect to get all the way thru it. But it is SO WORTH IT!!! The views of the ocean and the city are incredible! Later, down in old town, we had some wonderful ice cream and did some jewelry shopping, finding the prices MUCH better than Venice! Read Less

A gem of a city. Our ship did not use the tender as expected but docked in the port some distance from the city. Coaches were laid on at 6 euros return per person. Don't try and walk it as it is quite a long tread. Save you money as the city is very compact and easily done by yourself. Buy a guide or come prepared with downloaded information. You cannot get lost as it is a walled city. Shops, churches, squares, etc all so quaint and picturesque. Make sure you walk the city walls...........not too strenuous and afford marvellous views. Stop off for a coffee.........a city to be enjoyed! The trip back to the ship should have been better organised as it turned out to be more of a scrum! Te Costa staff were at hand but seemed to be useless not giving any information or instruction. Many of the Italians were very annoyed & vented their anger on the staff with public displays. Such a shame as with a little bit of forethought & planning it could have been avoided. Read Less

Dubrovnik was a beautiful little place I'd happily visit again. It was foggy when we arrived, but exploring this little town and its walls were just a delight. We had the best gelato here too! Don't bother doing a ship excursion in this port- you really can just wander around on your own and see what you want to see. We followed the suggestion to enter the city walls on the opposite side near the aquarium, and that was probably the best tip we got on our whole trip! We walked around virtually by ourselves, until we got to the other side to come down. I couldn't believe the lines there just to get up onto the walls! Read Less

We took the ship's shuttle bus ($5/pp each way)to the old Walled City at 10:15am. Some folks walked, but I wouldn't recommend that, as there are lots of hills in between, and you should save your energy for walking the walls and all the associated steps. The bus drops you off right in front of the Pile Gate. There is an admission charge for the walls (I think it was 8E/person) and they DID accept Euros. It was not necessary to convert money to the local currency, as I've read you had to do in the past. Bring water and sunscreen, it gets hot. We started off early in the morning, and walked the entire wall, snapping photos along the way. Keep your tickets, as there are check points by the various gates. Took about 1.25 hours, without the audio commentary that you can rent. We had read about the restaurant BUZA, with views over the ocean outside the wall, and spent some time finding it. Unfortunately, they don't serve lunch, only cold drinks (Follow the "COLD DRINKS" signs when wandering through the alleys to the gap in the wall and you're there!) The Stradun is the main street in the walled city, with lots of gelato shops and restaurants. The less expensive places are off the main street. We found the bargain of the week, a take-away tuna fish sandwich AND a piece of baklava for 4 Euros at Nico's Bakery. They also sell gelato, so we went back later for that! There wasn't much that interested us in way of shopping, so we left the old town and wandered up the main street and accessed the walking paths along the top of the cliff overlooking the ocean. Good place to sit and write postcards. Hopped back on the shuttle bus and were back on the ship by 3:10 pm. Read Less

Two years ago, visiting the Old Town in Dubrovnik was the highlight of our cruise. The people were friendly, the locals were walking with their children and having coffee, shopping at the little market, etc. This time, prices had increased a lot, locals were not in evidence, friendliness was limited, the market had a few touristy items, and the feel, or soul, seemed to have gone.

Dubrovnik, Croatia: Dubrovnik is easy walking round the old town although the walk round the old city walls is worthwhile but quite energetic.
