Dubrovnik Travel Advice

Best time to visit Dubrovnik and getting around the town

Dubrovnik is one of the hottest destinations in Croatia, as well as Europe as a whole. It is the most visited city in Croatia. The city is rapidly becoming known as a summer getaway for US and European residents, though travel to the city at any time of year is an excellent choice.

However, for those new to the city, a few tips and helpful hints may be in order to help you get the best travel to, from and around the city, in order to help you make the most of your Dubrovnik travel adventure.

Dubrovnik is one of the most popular stopover places for majos cruise ships in the Mediterranean, attracting numerous cruises annually on stopover visits.

Best time to visit

The most popular time of year to visit the city, as well as the country, is during the summer. The mild, Mediterranean climate makes the summer an excellent way to escape sweltering heat elsewhere.

You'll find that air travel is more expensive during the summer, though. To save money, consider traveling in late spring or early fall. Winter travel can be hazardous; the area does experience snow and ice.

Getting around the town

You will find a lot of interesting sights on your Dubrovnik travel getaway

There are numerous ways to get around the city. Dubrovnik boasts a fantastic tram system, as well as a bus system for those eager to view the sights.

However, you can also rent bicycles, mopeds and scooters to get around. You'll find that rental prices are very reasonable and that you can easily access the city at your own pace.

If you plan to drive, you'll find several car rental companies located throughout the city. Traveling by car is a great way to explore the areas outside of the city, while scooters and mopeds, as well as public transportation make getting around in the city easier.

Flying to Dubrovnik

Flying into Dubrovnik is usually simple. US travelers will likely have to board another airline on arrival in Europe, though Delta does offer direct service to the city. You'll find a wide array of airlines serving the city, including Croatia Airlines, Air France, KLM and many smaller airlines. Traveling by air into the city from around Europe is not problematic. See Croatia flights for more information on airlines flying to Croatia.

Roads in Dubrovnik

While the roads around the city are not what Westerners are accustomed to, improvements are being made on a constant basis. You'll find that highways are marked with the letter "M" and roads will be marked with an "E". Speed limits are strictly enforced (100 KPH in the countryside and 50 KPH or lower in congested areas). In addition, Croatia uses right-lane driving, enforces motorcycle helmet laws and regulates low-beam headlights at all times.
