LAPAD DUBROVNIK TO OLD CITY OF DUBROVNIK – OUR FIRST NIGHT IN THE OLD CITY ON OUR HONEYMOON

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 DSC09374The very next day we had our last swim before heading over to the OLD CITY DSC09393 DSC09394 DSC09396DSC09398We 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. DSC09416 DSC09417 DSC09419 DSC09421 DSC09425DSC09435 DSC09437 You will find lots of musicians throughout the city DSC09440 DSC09441 DSC09442 DSC09444 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. DSC09445DSC09448Pigeons in love too DSC09450 DSC09452DSC09457 DSC09460 DSC09461 DSC09465DSC09470DSC09473 DSC09474 DSC09475 DSC09476 DSC09477 DSC09478

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. DSC09666 DSC09668 DSC09669

We went after dinner so they had a spot for us so we were very lucky. DSC09738 DSC09740 Dessert was yummy !
