By the time we visited in 2002 the war damaged Dubrovnik was completely and
Dubrovnick is a good base for several excursions
into Southern Croatia. Things we recommend doing in and around Dubrovnik
Shop for brunch at the Farmer's Market (daily,
main square) and then consume it from a nice ocean lookout along the sea-side
Take a boat trip out of the harbor - they take you
to nearby islands; bbq'ed fish lunch included
motor-scooter for a day drives along the main road North to beaches, fabulous views,
and seaside konobe.
Go to outdoor movies.
Visit the old synagogue.
The oldest Sephardi synagogue in the world is in
Dubrovnik (picture - right) and well worth seeing. Look for the prayer book lockers by the staircase.
After Dubrovnik we did Hvar
and an unplanned excursion to the
Dubrovnik dining recommendation: Atlantic-Cucina
Italiana [**, $] at Kardinala Stepinca 42. This is a small
family (Croatian-Italian) run neighborhood restaurant about 15 minutes
by cab from the town center. Its the best place for pizza in and around
dining in Hvar
View from hill overlooking the town and
Adriatic Sea. You can get to this view by scooter, cab, or hiking up the
hill from downtown.
