We had our last meal in LAPAD – these were our lovely chefs – in this area of Dubrovnik – there is great places to swim, chill & relax & EAT – really great restaurants ! It was called EDEN restaurant and had two levels and was a good find The very next day we had our last swim before heading over to the OLD CITY We rented an AIRBNB in the OLD CITY – it was the least expensive route to go and was a great choice. We were in the heart of the OLD CITY. Be warned that if you are carrying a lot of luggage you might want to be careful about this decision because there are a lot of steps in the OLD CITY and depending on where you are it could be tricky. We found a place a street away from STRADUN which is the main street once you get in the gates of the OLD CITY so we had to go down that street and up a street with some stairs. Once inside we had about two flights of stairs – no elevator – We were fine because suprisingly I traveled light this time. I only had one rolling back that was small for me and not that heavy and a CARAVAN canvas bag so it wasn’t too bad but if I was packing how I used too I would have been in big trouble.
So we get into the OLD CITY put our bags down and find DOLCE VITA – we read about it before going since we had to look up the best ice cream shop in DUBROVNIK and Dolce Vita was tasty – they are a bit snarky in their – the service is quick since they are busy but the ice cream is pretty delicious – I liked that they had some interesting flavors like KINDER candy flavor but their straight up chocolate was super delicious. They also had RAFAELO like those yummy coconut balls that are pretty popular there in Croatia – they had them in the supermarkets and in our mini fridge at our HOTEL MORE when we were in LAPAD. You will find lots of musicians throughout the city Name time to walk the CITY WALLS. The city walls surround the city and are huge – it took a good hour and half to walk the whole walkway – there are some stairs but it isn’t too bad – it can be very slippery at times so good to wear shoes with a bit of grip on them. Pigeons in love too
More cats that are so sweet a view from this bar that is famous there called CAFE BUZA where people jump off a cliff into the water The same three photos ? They look similiar but they were taken by three different people walking on the city wall I wanted to see the difference between each photo It was pretty hot so we stopped at this little cafe – inside it was so sweet and they had tables with sewing machines – they are known for their juices and the staff is very nice Ok this couple we met at OTTO told us we had to find LADY PI – PI and I am so glad they told us about this place because it is a hidden gem but amazing. You have to climb up a bunch of stairs from STRADUN but once upstairs it is all covered in ivy and super neat especially to watch the sunset. The other fun thing is there are some stray cats that come in and become your little visiting pet for the night. You might want to get there before 5:30/ 6pm because we got in just in time and then there was a long line outside – the food is delicious. They cook some of the food in a big brick oven in front of you. Service is great, the view is amazing and one of the coolest things are these bird bats called SWIFTS that fly around in huge groupings and make this haunting sound it was really an incredible experience.
MMMM MUSSELS The swifts – bird type bats that make this amazingly haunting soundThen we saw this glass place when we were walking the city walls and Scott mapped it out and we found ABOVE 5 – the food looked delicious but we had dessert which was fantastic – there are only a few tables and you need to climb 5 flights of stairs to get up there but so worth it when you are up on the top this spot is MAGICAL – I totally recommend Above 5 ROOFTOP RESTAURANT it is a must see even if it is just for dessert. We went after dinner so they had a spot for us so we were very lucky. Dessert was yummy !
