Dubrovnik Travel Tips: Five Things to Remember for Your Trip

Embarking on a trip to Dubrovnik? Here are five top travel tips for your trip to Dubrovnik to ensure you maximise your experience in this enchanting city.

1. Step Comfortably: Bring the Right Shoes

Whether you’re exploring the Old Town or navigating the city’s steps, comfort is key. Pack a pair of comfortable shoes or trainers, as sandals or flip flops might pose a challenge with the numerous steps scattered around Dubrovnik.

2. Budget-Friendly Adventures: Invest in the Dubrovnik Pass

Save money and enjoy access to all key attractions by buying Dubrovnik Pass, starting at 35 Euros. T

If you are staying in Dubrovnik for more than a day, then we would recommend buying the 3-4 day pass which also include a transport pass and entry to sites like the Rector’s Palace and Franciscan Monastery. You also get a 20% discount for Lokrum Island, making it a super cost-effective choice compared to individual entry fees (especially for the City Walls) which alone cost 35 Euros per person.

3. Beat the Crowds: Early Exploration of the City Walls

The City Walls are a must-visit, but the crowds can be overwhelming, especially in summer and after midday when the cruise ships dock and the Old Town is flooded by the passes.

The City Walls open at 8 am and take around 1.5-2 hours to walk. Arrive early to avoid the crowds, and ensure you can can capture stunning photos with ease.

4. Secure Your Seat: Restaurant Reservations

Plan ahead during the busy summer months by making reservations as soon as you book your trip. Alternatively, secure reservations early in your stay to avoid disappointment.

5. Beyond the Walls: Explore Outside the Old Town

Dubrovnik extends beyond the Old Town; don’t get stuck in the Old Town and miss out on nearby treasures such as Gruž and Lapad.

Gruž, a short bus ride from Pile Gate, offers the Port and the Dubrovnik Beer Company which is a great place to stop to taste some local beers.

For a beachy vibe, head to Lapad, accessible by bus (a transport pass is included with the 3-4 day Dubrovnik Pass) or Uber. Our top picks are Cave Bar More for a drink and the renowned Fish Bar El Pulpo – a big hit with the locals.
