When to go
The Old Town set against the sea looks best in the sun but July to August is sizzlingly hot: 30 degrees and above is the norm. In the spring or autumn the temperatures hover around the 20s, but April has the added bonus of being when the countryside blooms.
PlanesDubrovnik Airport is located half an hour’s drive south of the city with flights to European locations such as London (with British Airways), Birmingham (with Monarch), Manchester, Madrid, Paris, Zagreb and Moscow (www.airport-dubrovnik.hr).
TrainsThe closest train station is at Ploče, which is a two-hour drive away north of Dubrovnik (www.hznet.hr). From there you can get a train to Sarajevo.
AutomobilesThe city is completely pedestrianized and small enough to get around on foot. Rent a car to travel up the wonderfully scenic Adriatic coastal road to Split.
Lie back and dream of the Adriatic at this Croatian cliffside beauty The Adriatic views are something of a theme here: whether you’re in your bedroom, the excellent restaurant, the rooftop bar or out on one of the terraces, the glittering seascapes will be there to drink in. The ceiling-to-floor windows in Villa Dubrovnik’s Suite 418 serves up views that stretch along the coast to the small neighbouring island of Lokrum. And if you’d rather lounge amid bubbles than crisp white sheets, a Jacuzzi awaits on your private terrace.
