Along the coast, the green hills serve as a backdrop to inlets, cliffs and beaches that are set along the waters of the Adriatic Sea.
Croatia is a remarkable mix of cultures - Roman, Byzantine, Venetian and Slavic. It now enjoys this rich heritage as a democratic republic. Croatia is famous for its lively cafes, busy markets and colourful folklore.
We stay in Cavtat, a delightful resort with a beautiful bay, harbour and palm-fringed promenade. It is an easy walk to the old town with its meandering paths around the peninsula. The natural harbour is surrounded by green hills and you will find it a charming spot for cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. The old city of Dubrovnik is easily accessible from Cavtat by public bus or boat. In Dubrovnik you will enjoy strolling in the medieval town, visiting churches, palaces and monasteries. For stunning views of the Adriatic, you may walk along the city ramparts.
