From the sky Dubrovnik appears rose gold: terracotta roofs blend with creamy limestone streets and burnished domes before trickling down to a long peninsular, jutting into the shimmering, turquoise Adriatic. The Old Town tells a thousand stories with its many influences from Byzantine, Greek, Austrian and Yugoslavian rule, while the ancient buildings bear the signs of more recent tragedy in pockmarked shrapnel holes. Dubrovnik's charming vigour is apparent in its stylish, unhurried population, who mix happily with tourists on the magnificent Stradun, a 300m long thoroughfare of gleaming, polished stone. You'll never tire of the harbour views: there's a reason why many of Dubrovnik's fans are repeat visitors.
A walking tour of the imposing city walls offers panoramic views over the beaches, mountains, squares and ochre rooftops. After, refresh yourself with a dip in the Adriatic: explore Dubrovnik's many tiny islands by sea kayak or private boat, stopping off at Lokrum's pretty inland cove for a swim. Cool off at the Franciscan Monastery, where its sheltered cloisters are a welcome retreat and usually empty over lunchtime or at the end of the day. At night, try sunset cocktails and traditional Dalmatian dishes at Nautika, a slick and stylish restaurant with one of the best locations in Europe, right on the harbour.
Boutique seafront hotel Villa Orsula looks like a Game of Thrones mansion with a few modern updates, mixing traditional architecture with contemporary style in large, airy rooms with balconies facing the tranquil Adriatic and the nearby island of Lokrum. Unsurprising, as the hit television show is filmed nearby. Here, lush gardens lead down to a private beach and it's a mere five minute stroll into Dubrovnik's sun-drenched, UNESCO-protected white stone city of the Old Town, but we can't promise any of the star-studded cast - sorry.
The Hotel Excelsior is ideally located near the Old City of Dubrovnik, just a short walk from the centre, and it has some of the best views in the area: we highly recommend spending an evening relaxing with a cocktail at the Abakus Piano Bar, enjoying the live music while admiring the Adriatic. In addition to Abakus there are four restaurants serving authentic local, national and international cuisine, including a surprisingly fantastic Thai restaurant, not something you find every day in Croatia, but well placed to utilise some of the fantastic seafood that you'll encounter here.
