Executive summary by darmansjah

Lord Byron dubbed it ‘the pearl of the Adriatic’ and, thanks to restoration work done since the conflict-ridden 1990s, Dubrovnik doesn’t fail to amaze, with its towering walls, marble streets and dramatic Gothic architecture.

Don’t miss every trip to Dubrovnik must include a walk along the impressive city walls, remarkably well-preserved since they were built between the 13th and 16th centuries, walk the perimeter for view of the UNESCO-protected Old Town and the Adriatic coast.

Where to stay A beautifully restored stone building in the Old Town houses the Hotel Stari Grad. It has smart, comfortable rooms and a knockout terrace overlooking the city (from US$185).

Where to eat with a location just below the city walls, a glorious view of the port and fresh local seafood on the menu, Lokando Peskarija is a favourite with visitors and locals alike (Gorica Sv. Vlana 77).
