Dubrovnik's picture-postcard looks
and idyllic location have been attracting visitors for centuries. A highlight of Dubrovnik holidays has to be the old walled city, with its charming piazzas, and narrow streets
linked by steep steps, it is protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site
. For the best views over the coast, take a walk right around the city walls, which run for just under 2 kilometres and are 25 metres high at their highest point.
As you wander the streets of the old town you will find new discoveries at every twist and turn
. Start by walking along the Stradun, the main street, paved with gleaming marble and lined with enticing boutiques
and welcoming cafes. Shop for local handicrafts, candied orange peel or fresh fruit at the morning market.
