Dubrovnik

The Basics

Compact Old Town Dubrovnik is easy to see during one day in port and many shore excursions begin at Pile Gate, continue along the pedestrian Stradun to the city walls, and visit places such as St. Saviour’s, the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin, and Sponza Palace.

The Dubrovnik cable car offers excellent views of the city and coast from atop Mount Srd, while other shore excursions allow visitors to kayak in the Adriatic Sea or check out surrounding coastal towns such as Cavtat. Dubrovnik also serves as a jumping-off point for farther-flung adventures in the Mediterranean.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Dubrovnik Cruise Port has a visitor information desk, ATMs, restrooms, supermarket, bank, eateries, and foreign exchange kiosks.

  • If you’re exploring Dubrovnik on foot, be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared for some steep streets.

  • The steep, narrow, and often cobblestoned streets make travel by wheelchair or with a stroller difficult.

  • To eliminate the hassle of flagging down a taxi or navigating public transport, book a shore excursion that includes hotel pickup and drop-off.

How to Get to Dubrovnik From the Dubrovnik Cruise Port

The port in Gruz, a neighborhood about 2 miles (3 kilometers) north of Old Town, is the most common docking spot for arriving cruisers. Otherwise, the ship may dock in the Old Town harbor or anchor in the bay; from there, passengers will be tendered into Old Town. Buses or taxis are available outside both ports, while shore excursions often offer round-trip transportation.
