SuperSaver - Dubrovnik Riviera

  • 7 Night Holiday
  • Half-Board
View Dates & Prices

Located in between rugged mountains and a sparkling sea, Dubrovnik boasts stunning architecture and spectacular views. Add in the beautiful weather, great food and friendly locals and it is easy to see why this corner of Croatia’s Adriatic coast is quickly becoming a serious alternative to traditional Mediterranean destinations. The city has a rich history dating back to the 7th century and has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1979.

On this 7-night break you will be able to spend lazy days at your scenic seaside base and explore Dubrovnik’s Old Town. There will be plenty of time to enjoy walks along the historic city walls and to sightsee at your own pace. Come and see for yourself why Lord Byron decided to name Dubrovnik ‘the Pearl of the Adriatic’.

Holiday highlights

Dubrovnik's City Walls 

These were built between the 13th and 16th centuries and are still intact despite the 1991 bombings during the Croatian War of Independence. The walls are over 2km long and 25m high with no less than 16 towers. A walk along the walls is a must for any trip to Dubrovnik. 

Dubrovnik Cathedral  

The cathedral houses the relics of St. Blaise, the patron saint of Dubrovnik, as well as numerous paintings and works of art. 

Dubrovnik Old Town 

Wandering through the dazzling streets and squares of the Old Town is a great way to while away a few relaxing hours. Explore the warren of marble-paved and cobbled streets and pick up some beautiful local art or handmade items in the little shops before enjoying an Italian style ice cream. At night the town is buzzing with activity, it’s a great time to sit with a drink outside one of the numerous bars & cafés and watch the world go by. 

Lokrum Island 

This Island is a densely wooded nature reserve with an interesting botanical garden and the remains of a Habsburg fortress. The Fort was built in a shape of a five-pointed star by the French army in 1806, and from the top there is an impressive view of Dubrovnik and the island itself. It is a ten-minute ferry ride from Dubrovnik Old Town and a visit can be booked locally. 

Elaphite Islands 

We recommend taking a day trip to the Elaphite Islands, enjoy a boat journey and take a stroll around these largely uninhabited and unspoilt islands.
