Days 5 - 6 Dubrovnik
Start the day with the short walk to the gates of the Old Town, proclaimed a city museum by UNESCO. The old city is surrounded by a circuit of city walls; over a mile in length, and with a tower in each corner, they are a masterpiece of medieval and renaissance architecture. You will also stroll along the centuries-old main city promenade called Stradun; at one end of this street you will visit 14th century Franciscan Monastery whose cloister ranks among the most inspiring sites of the city. At the other end, see the church of St. Blaise and the Sponza Palace, and the Rector's Palace. You will also visit the Dominican Church and Monastery, constructed during the 14th century at the same time as the city’s walls were being erected. The following day is yours to explore at your own pace: perhaps head to the beach, take to the water or wander the Old Town.
