Always wanted to see Dubrovnik? Check out this five star Easter break in Croatia for only €496!
The medieval city of Dubrovnik should be on everyone’s wish list. It is so well preserved and looks like something straight out of a fairytale. Walk around the city walls, take the cable car to Srd Hill and then catch the sunset from one of the many cliff bars. Although you can stay in the heart of the old town, I think the best way to enjoy it, is to holiday in one of the resorts close by. Dubrovnik is actually quite small and can be packed with cruise ship visitors during the day. However, staying outside the centre, lets you have the best of both worlds! Relax by the sea or pool during the day and pop in the evening when the city is less crowded.
I have chosen the pretty town of Cavtat, a resort I stayed in with my family a few years ago. Once a small fishing village it is now a picture postcard resort with upmarket hotels and crystal clear waters. Dine in one of the many restaurants that are dotted along the seafront promenade and admire the sea-views or the mountainous backdrop. If you fancy spending the day in Dubrovnik, catch a water taxi from the shore, or hop on the local bus. For more details on visiting this incredible city, read my Dubrovnik blog.
