With a little inside information and local knowledge your Dubrovnik adventure will be even more enjoyable. Here are some Dubrovnik travel tips to save you time and money as well as opening a new window into the city.
#1 A bus ticket in Dubrovnik costs 1,99 EUR on the bus and 1,73 EUR at the kiosks. If you want to pay on the bus try and have the correct change available. There are numerous buses that travel from the Port of Dubrovnik to the Old City and other Dubrovnik suburbs. In fact the main bus station is right in front of the port and you’ll find an information desk there.
#2 The walk on the City walls usually lasts from ninety minutes to two hours. Wear comfortable shoes, take a bottle of water and avoid the hottest hours of the day. And of course don’t forget your camera!
#3 The Dubrovnik Cable Car whisks you to the top of the Srd Mountain in under five minutes. The price for an adult return ticket is 27 EUR and 7 EUR for children. Why not get a single ticket up the mountain and walk down? The pathway is good and the walk to the Old City takes around 40 minutes.
#4 The "Green Market" in the Gundulic Square in Dubrovnik opens from the break of dawn until exactly midday. Fresh fruit and vegetables all locally grown. As the bell tower rings twelve o'clock the pigeons are fed in the square.
#5 The Dubrovnik Card is a unique pass allowing entry into 8 cultural-historical monuments, the top attractions of Dubrovnik. Depending on the length of stay, you can buy 3 types of cards: 1, 3 or 7 days. By purchasing a Dubrovnik Card, you will get a bus card that is valid throughout the city of Dubrovnik and some discounts too. You can buy it in tourist board offices, hotels, etc. but the easiest way is online - where you also get 10 percent off.
#6 When booking plane ticket to Dubrovnik reserve a seat on the left hand side of the plane. On arrival you will have a superb view over the Old City of Dubrovnik, whilst the right hand side of the plane will be left to look at the endless blue of the Adriatic Sea.
