If your headed to Croatia for the first time, it’s likely you will start or end your trip in Dubrovnik. This four night itinerary to Dubrovnik, Croatia is a balance of time exploring and enjoying the coastal gems that the city has. One of my favorite parts of Dubrovnik was that it had access to endless things to do and you had a wide range of activities. We spent most mornings exploring the Old Town and then in the afternoon heat, retreated to the rocky beaches.

Good to know before visiting Dubrovnik

  • Croatian Kuna is the local currency and the ATM’s have the best exchange rate.
  • The city is really walkable once there and Uber is the best way to get around.
  • Reservations are necessary for restaurants as they do fill up in summer months.

Where to stay & more places to eat at in Dubrovnik are available in the Dubrovnik Guide.

A Four Night Itinerary to Dubrovnik, Croatia


Day 1: Arrive & Get Situated
After a long journey, I love to get situated for where I’m staying. I always opt for staying awake until 9 pm, so I’ll get settled into our place, unpack a bit and freshen up. Our first night in Dubrovnik, we decided to walk the city walls at sunset and grab a drink. It was a great introduction to the city and helped us orient for the time there.

Coffee: Cogito Coffee
Dinner: Bota Sushi or Azur

Day 2: Explore Town
If you want the streets to yourself, get up before 8am and you’ll feel like the entire city is yours. If you like being behind the camera, the light is superb and the streets still. Take the cable car up to the top of the mountain when it opens, around 9 am to beat the heat. You could spend an hour or so taking in the view here and can get a cup of coffee. Afterwards, head to the War Photo Limited museum for a lesson in history.. From there, head for a long lunch at Prora and spend the rest of the afternoon sunbathing on the side of the water there or at Banje Beach. It’s a perfect day, balanced between exploring and relaxation.

Breakfast/Coffee: Cogito Coffee or Congo
Lunch:
Prora
Dinner: Restaurant Kopun

Day 3: Take a Day Trip to Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina
One of the perks of Dubrovnik is a location close to another incredible sights. I’d recommend an organized tour to see Kravice Falls & Mostar. It’s a full day journey but worth the time to see these gems. We used Viator for our tour and they offer a range of different experiences. Alternatively, island hopping to Lokrum could be nice or a visit to Montenegro.

Breakfast/Coffee: Cogito Coffee or Congo
Lunch:
In Mostar, we loved Harmonija
Dinner: Bota, Azur, or Restaurant Kopun

Day 4: A Day of Sunbathing
After a full day out, nothing beats sleeping in, a slow breakfast and a bit of boutique shopping. In the afternoon, I’d head to Danče Beach with some sandwiches to go and go post up on the rocks like the locals. Bring a towel and wear good shoes to get there, it takes about 15 minutes or so. The water is so refreshing and the perfect way to cool off. That night I’d end with a sunset drink at Buza Bar outside of the walls.

Breakfast/Coffee: Cogito Coffee or Congo
Lunch:
Sandwiches to go from Buffet Škola
Dinner: Taj Mahal Old Town

Day 5: Depart for Your Next Stop
Always the saddest, the last morning in town. I always grab one more breakfast or pastry to go and soak it all in.
