Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik, you Adriatic jewel box, where did you get that red? The city’s old town is walled all around, with ramparts that drop to the sea and enclose a town of closely clustered buildings, mostly attired in white walls and brilliant red rooftops. Explore town highlights on your cruise, like Roland’s Column, the Bell Tower, or the Old Port. Outside of town, go for a swim in the limpid waters at Lapad or Banje beaches. Or head to the top of Mount Srd for a view of the city, the beaches, and away west to Italy.

Established 1,300 years ago on the far southern tip of the Dalmatian Coast, this city once rivaled Venice in terms of its importance. Take a walking tour to the Dominican Monastery and marvel at the finest collection of Renaissance paintings, including a painting by Titian.

  • Cathedral and Treasury
    Among the wonders inside this 1673 Cathedral are a number of masterpieces, including Titian’s The Assumption. The treasury itself features an opulent collection of gold and silver religious relics.
  • City Walls and Maritime Museum
    Walk the circumference of these 13th-century walls for some spectacular views. The museum, located in St. John’s Fortress, features models and artifacts relating to this important maritime port.
  • Dalmatian Coastal Villages (Cavat / Trsteno / Ston)
    Cavtat’s name comes from its ancient origins and link with Dubrovnik. One of the most romantic villages on the Dalmatian Coast, it was the honeymoon spot for Edward VIII and Mrs. Wallis Simpson. Trsteno is home to one of the oldest arboretums in this part of the world. You can also see the 300-year-old Fountain of Neptune and a medieval oil mill. Ston and its valuable salt pans are still protected by one of the longest stone walls in the world.
  • Dominican Monastery
    The monastery may look like a fortress, since it was built at the same time as the city walls. Inside, however, you’ll find a fine collection of Renaissance art including frescoes by Paolo Veneziano.
  • Franciscan Monastery and Pharmacy
    This 14th-century complex offers Romanesque and Gothic cloisters, a museum and one of Europe’s best manuscript libraries. The pharmacy is believed to be the oldest working apothecary in the world.
  • Konavle
    Experience the unique folklore and tradition of this part of the Dubrovnik Riviera. The area is filled with beautiful contrasts–mountains and valleys, green hills and naked stone, and over 30 villages.
  • Pile Gate and Old Town
    The gate is this UNESCO World Heritage Site’s traditional entrance. Once inside, you’ll find a wide marbled pedestrian boulevard and the 15th century Onofrio Fountain among other historical monuments.
  • Rector’s Palace
    This 15th-century palace mixes both the Gothic and Renaissance styles. Inside you’ll find a vast collection of artifacts, paintings and furniture dating back from the time of the Dubrovnik Republic.
