Dubrovnik anchors the southernmost region of the Croatian coast and lies just a stone’s throw from the border with Montenegro. The medieval Old City, surrounded by its famous fortified walls, stands at its center, and nearby beaches offer pristine Adriatic waters and gentle tides.

Designing Your Journey
Work with Indagare to design the perfect itinerary for an immersive journey. Our travel experts know the destination inside and out, and they can make recommendations based on your travel needs and preferences.
Indagare can arrange guided touring of the city’s historic sites, boat charters and exclusive dinner reservations. Here’s just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.
Day 1: City Tour
Dubrovnik’s charms can be obscured by crowds in the peak of summer, so you’ll want to explore it by foot with a guide who can introduce you to the city’s hidden treasures. You’ll learn about the past of this fascinating city, from its days as a wealthy hub of the Venetian Empire to the Balkan Wars of the 1990s. Later, walk the 14th-century old city walls and peruse the walls’ many cafés and small shops.
Day 2: Old Town and Beach
Wake up early to stroll the labyrinthine Old Town and wander along marble-paved streets and steep cobblestoned alleys, passing churches, convents, palaces and fountains. In the afternoon, cool off at one of Dubrovnik’s most popular beaches, Banje Beach. Indagare can arrange cabanas, as well as water activities such as parasailing, water skiing, wakeboarding and boat charters for exploring nearby islands.
Day 3: Lokrum Island
The closest and most accessible of the islands surrounding Dubrovnik, Lokrum is a 10-minute boat ride from the city’s marina. The island’s easternmost point boasts a rocky beach, and the interior features beautiful botanical gardens, a former Benedictine monastery and a Hapsburg-era castle. Enjoy its pretty walking paths and swimming coves and glimpse the resident wild peacocks.
