The Croatian city of Dubrovnik is one of Europe’s most enduring treasures.
Cross the medieval bridge and enter the Old Town through Pile Gate, then climb the ramparts for a history lesson like no other. It takes an hour or two to walk the Old Town’s ramparts.
At Fort Bokar, take in the views to Fort Lawrence, then follow the sea wall to St John’s Fort, which once protected the City Harbor from enemy ships. Explore Fort Revelin, which offers even more commanding views of the harbor, then continue on to the highest point in the city’s defenses, Fort Minceta.
