Once the holiday home of choice for Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, Dubrovnik's enjoyed almost a century in the spotlight. These days, it's the likes of Tom Cruise and Michael Douglas who are spotted here. And it's easy to see why. This walking tour of the old town brings you an impressive line-up of sights in just under two hours.
Meet up with your guide in the early evening and set off on a guided walk of Dubrovnik's old town in the prettiest light of the day. The area's packed with Baroque churches, Venetian houses and ornate palaces. Not to mention designer shops and homey restaurants, splashing fountains and bell towers. All of which you'll spot during the tour.
Top billing, though, has to go to the chunky walls and battlements that surround the city. Places don't come much prettier than this – no wonder the poet Byron dubbed it ‘the pearl of the Adriatic'. After the tour, you'll have free time to explore under your own steam, or enjoy an aperitif.
