Dubrovnik in 2-3 days

Day 1

Head to Gunduliceva Poljana where there is a busy morning market selling fruit and veg, cheese and homemade fruit brandy or ‘rakija’ as the locals call it. After this, head to the old town’s entrance where you can get access onto the city walls – a wonderful two kilometre walk that overlooks the city and ocean. Once you have completed the walk, cool down with an ice-cream from one of the many ice-creameries. Take in some of the country’s historical artwork with a visit to the Dominican Monastery and Museum, which offers paintings from the 15th and 16th century.

Day 2

Start the day with a coffee in one of the cafes then head to Orlando Column, which features the statue of a warrior chiselled into it. Head to Spoza Palace for a wander around the old building and continue on the culture trail at Rector’s Palace. Stop off at one of the many restaurants for some pizza for lunch and spend the rest of the afternoon wandering around the cobbled streets.

Day 3

Enjoy the day lazing at Banje beach, located outside the city’s eastern gate (Ploce Gate), it offers views of the old town. If you tire of lying around, hire a peddle boat or rent a jet ski. Take in some lunch at the nearby café. In the evening, head to one of the bars for some cocktails.
