Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik in June is considered shoulder season, which means fewer tourists compared to the peak summer months. So you can enjoy the city's attractions without the crowds and long lines. Dubrovnik's Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with well-preserved mediaeval architecture, charming narrow streets, and historic landmarks such as the city walls, Rector's Palace, and Sponza Palace. On our Dubrovnik holidays, we'll take a guided tour of Dubrovnik Old Town and learn more about the city's rich history. Another highlight is a visit to Lokrum Island, a peaceful nature reserve just off the coast of Dubrovnik, where you can relax in the botanical gardens, visit the historic monastery, and enjoy the scenic views of the Adriatic Sea. For a panoramic view of the city and surrounding islands, we recommend taking the Dubrovnik Cable Car to Mount Srd.
