Visit Dubrovnik City Walls and Vlaho Bukovac House for their historical value. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Sunj Beach and Pasjaca Beach. When in Dubrovnik, make a side trip to see Cavtat Old Town in Cavtat, approximately 34 minutes away. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Old Town, race across the water with a speed boat tour, steep yourself in history at Fort Lovrijenac, and see the interesting displays at War Photo Limited.
