Dubrovnik Day Travel Tips
Many travelers that arrive by cruise ship will have only a limited stay of one day to explore the city. You will arrive in the morning and our recommendation is that you immediately take a tour from the high ground to get perspectives from above as captured in this travel video. The small road to the top can get congested later in the day with taxis and excursion vans. There is a peaceful serentity of arriving when the alternative cable cars rise to the top with few passengers. Our cab driver provided some great history on the way up on the importance of the high ground during the recent wars where people in the city below would look up every morning to see if the flag flying was remained the Croatian flag. Quite a stark contrast to waking up every morning and deciding on what flavor you might use in your latte!
After you take your time capturing some memorable images from the top you can return to the city with our taxi driver, walk down to the city (good shoes needed) or take the cable car down. There is a restaurant at the top where you can relax and enjoy the view but every minute will mean more travelers getting off the ships in port and walking the walls around the city which was our next destination. Some cruise lines (ex. Princess Cruises) have extended stays for later hour departures on some itineraries. This option would allow you a more relaxing visit at the top and perhaps walk the walls later in the day when there is an exodus of cruise travelers to the port. The only down side to this option is that in the summer the walk on the walls will be much hotter later in the day.
