One again up early to watch our sail into Dubrovnik and one again another sail in that did not disappoint. As soon as we hopped off the ship we went down and hired a taxi to take us on what they call the Panoramic City Tour for 50 euro’s . In one our they take to several vantage points where you can get some great pictures of the ship and the old town. The look out up where the cable car takes you to is magnificent. It is so hard to believe that this city was so damaged by war and not that long ago. But according to our taxi driver times are very good in Croatia now.
We booked him for another hour and he drove us out along the Croatian Riviera as far as Cavtat and brought us back again. We did stop at a little sea side area where we saw what once would have been beautiful hotels along the Beach.
He dropped us off at the Polce Gate where we stopped for a quick coffee before we attacked the wall.... We walked the whole wall and all I can say is “ it was hot “ ..... up, down and round and round we went, taking in all the different views that can be seen until we completed a whole circuit.
We stopped for a quick lunch and a much lighter lunch that we had been having as I am sure all this port food is starting to take it’s toll. We then decided to follow one of our walking tour maps just to get around the city to see the major sites and just pottered around the small lanes ways even a little walk down by the water until it was time to head back to ship.
