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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Cavtat Cemetery and Church of Saint Blaise. Get some historical perspective at Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola and Church of Our Lady of the Snow. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Dubrovnik: Sunj Beach (in Lopud) and Cavtat Old Town (in Cavtat). There's still lots to do: head off the coast to Lopud Island, contemplate the long history of The Franciscan Church and Monastery, tour the pleasant surroundings at Sveti Jakov Beach, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Brsalje Street.
