As Thomson Cruises adds Dubrovnik to its home port line-up from next year, we show you what a day in this UNESCO-listed city looks like…
From summer 2015, Thomson Celebration will be setting off from Dubrovnik on 4 new Croatian itineraries, so there’s never been a better time to explore the city’s tangled streets and ancient walls. Here’s a taster of what you could be getting up to…
Meander around the maze-like old town
Dubrovnik’s old town earns its UNESCO-listed status 10 times over, thanks to the marble streets, Baroque churches, pocket-sized palaces and skinny lanes.
Eat lunch at a pavement café
Suntrap cafés and petite coffee shops line the streets in Dubrovnik. To lunch like a local, grab a street-side table and put the world to rights over a fig-filled pastry and a macchiato.
Kick back on a city beach
Banje Beach is just a 5-minute walk from the city gate. Sunloungers and parasols stock the sand-and-pebble stretch, and a restaurant-bar shakes up cocktails.
Pick a restaurant, any restaurant
Come dinner-time, take your pick from lively beach bars, family-run Croatian places and gourmet restaurants. Al fresco terraces come as standard, too.
Spy a sunset from the city walls
The city walls are sought-after territory for sunset-seekers, thanks to the cinematic sea views. Even after 10 centuries, these ramparts don’t look their age.
Check out the eclectic nightlife
Dubrovnik’s after-dark scene is a heady mix of arty wine bars, late-opening terrace restaurants, and laid-back jazz cafés.
Try a Cruise & Stay holiday. You can spend a week cruising followed by 3 or 7 nights taking it easy at a Thomson hotel in Dubrovnik. Or you can do it the other way around, and spend 7 nights in a hotel before setting off on a cruise.
Take a day off from all the adventuring and explore the ship...
