Tourico Vacations Reviews The Walled City of Dubrovnik and invites you to find out more about this popular destination for travel.
The town dates back to medieval times, and viewing it from above hearkens to Venice, Italy, which is just to the north. Just like Venice, Dubrovnik has no vehicles but has many renaissance-era churches and just as rich a history as Venice when it comes to its port of trade. But, instead of waterways separating these magnificent shops and homes, you’ll find marble cobblestoned streets with relaxed pedestrians taking in the sights and sipping on lattes.
Located on the Dalmatian Coast in the southwest corner of the boomerang-shaped Croatia, Dubrovnik is right across the water from the east coast of Italy. Bosnia and Herzegovina are just to the south. At Old Town’s Harbor, you’ll find several companies offering boat tours which illustrate the splendor of this region. If you decide to venture further inland, there are also tours of Croatia’s wine country, wine-tasting, and even bicycling through the magnificent countryside.
Dubrovnik’s port is a stop on several cruise line itineraries, amidst other stops such as Athens and the Greek Islands. The majority of cruises in this part of the world depart in the spring, summer, and fall months, but cruising in the wintertime has gained popularity in recent years. Most ships usually dock at Gruz Harbor, which is a short distance from Dubrovnik; however, if you’re aboard a smaller vessel, you might be able to dock at the Old Town Harbor, right in the heart of Dubrovnik.
