Don't go to Dubrovnik without walking the wall . It's a steep climb initially and I would suggest doing it early morning or cool evening as we went round in the heat of the day and he was exhausting!!! Wear loose clothing and decent shoes...More

Do first thing in the morning before the crowds and it gets too hot. Great views and well worth doing. 150 kuna each allowing only one walk. Lots and lots of steps. Some very steep. Take water. Took about an hour and half.

It must be on your to do list. It's like going to Paris without entering the Louvre. Be aware of the crowds and the sun, but it's the best way to see the old Town

I would definitely use a private guide who can help you cover as much ground as possible for your time in Dubrovnik. I will search my files for the name of the guide we had. Well worth the money. Larry
