Wander Through the Old Town
With the Old Town oozing romance, simply strolling the smooth cobblestone streets, getting lost in the narrow alleyways, is something you’ll have to do while in Dubrovnik. If you want something to aim for, visit the magnificent Gothic-Renaissance Rector’s Palace. Built in the late 15th-century, it was once the residence of Dubrovnik’s elected rector, but today it serves as a Cultural History Museum. You’ll see grand portraits in lavishly restored rooms, ornate staircases, elegant décor and coats of arms, getting a sense of how the wealthy lived during the period. If you visit in the summer, you may be able to catch a live concert here too.
Watch a Sunset from the Top of Mount Srd
There are few things more romantic than watching the sun melt into endless blue of the Adriatic Sea, and Dubrovnik offers one of the best vantage points. There’s a cable car that will bring you to the top of Mount Srd which rises to 1,352 as part of the Dinaric Alps mountain range. Hop on for a ride to get a bird’s-eye view of the red-tiled rooftops in the historic centre, the sea, and Lokrum Island. When the sun goes down, a burst of orange, red, pink and purple hues appear before it takes its final dip.
Sip Croatian Wine
Just a short drive from the centre of Dubrovnik will bring you to mountainous Peljesac, renowned for its red wine produced from the indigenous Mali Plavac grape. You’ll find many highly acclaimed wineries throughout the region, with the most popular Matusko in Potomje, Korta Katarina in Orebic and Bartulovic in Prizdrin. Spend the day walking through the vines, visiting wine cellars and tasting rooms, or under the Mediterranean sun with a picnic and a glass. If you want someone to chauffeur you around, there are plenty of private wine tasting tours to consider too. Give our team a call on +44 208 004 2345 to organise something special.
