Walking the Walls of DubrovnikJune 17, 2019 in Croatia ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F
We were up early to say one last goodbye to some of the tour members who hadn't left yet, then to conquer the City Walls of Dubrovnik. We did the entire circumference of 2 km (1.24 miles), which doesn't sound like much, but it's the steep ramps and 1080 stairs that get to you! Additionally, it was about 84 degrees with about 80% humidity. But we made it to the highest point: the large round tower of fort Minčeta. The views of the Adriatic and the beautiful city were amazing!
Part of the fun of these medieval cities is getting lost and finding interesting corners, shops and konobas (tavern/restaurants) that feature rustic local cuisine. We have enjoyed the wonderful seafood, vegetables, cured meats, and great wines. Myj has had lamb prepared multiple ways. With the exception of our splurge at 360 Restaurant (which wasn't much more than we'd pay at a good, but not Michelin restaurant at home) an excellent meal in Croatia and Slovenia is very reasonable.Read more
