Along the Dalmation Coast, the city of Dubrovnik has become famous for its pedestrian-only Old Town surrounded by fortress walls, and its historical heft has earned it World Heritage Site status.
Change things up with a short trip to Cavtat Old Town in Cavtat (about 34 minutes away). Dedicate the 17th (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Gradske Zidine, steep yourself in history at Fort Lovrijenac, step off the mainland to explore Island of Lokrum, and examine the collection at War Photo Limited.
