Take a break from Dubrovnik with a short trip to Cavtat Old Town in Cavtat, about 34 minutes away. The adventure continues: examine the collection at War Photo Limited, step off the mainland to explore Island of Lokrum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Dominican Monastery, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola.
