Croatia, Dubrovnik Guide (B): 24(ish) Hours in Dubrovnik

Can you see everything in Dubrovnik in one day? Ideally you want a couple of days to soak in the atmosphere, and to enjoy the city early morning and evening without those pesky cruise ship tourists, but it’s certainly possible to hit all the main sights in 24 hours. We stayed for three nights, but only spent one full day in Dubrovnik itself, so here’s how we filled our day.

One of the best ways to spend a couple of hours is to walk the city walls. If you go early enough – they’re open from 8am in the summertime – you’ll have a much more pleasant experience, without having to squeeze past hundreds of people all queuing up to take the same photo.

The walls date back to the 10th century and were built to protect the city – and was a great deterrent to potential invaders. If you were faced with 8ft high stone walls would you try and invade?

It’s about 2km all the way around, and it took us about 2 hours with plenty of photo stops, a bit of queuing behind tour groups from about halfway round, and a coffee stop overlooking the Adriatic.
