A stroll around Dubrovnik's fortifications is the most popular itinerary for visitors. In fact, it was my first and allowed me to get my bearings and an appreciation of the size of this obscure gem. I climbed on top of the walls to view the city from all angles. Climbing the walls was a herculean task, but I must admit that the views were worth the climb. Dubrovnik walls are a must see.
Game Of Thrones Tour
I'm a big enthusiast of Game of Thrones, and once I learned that some of its scenes were filmed in Dubrovnik, I couldn't leave without going for a Dubrovnik Game of Thrones tour . I met my guide, and we started our trip. Our first stop was Fort Lorvijenac that is found high up on the hill just outside the massive city gates. To make the tour enjoyable, my guide told me more about the history of Dubrovnik and showed me photos of where we were and the scenes of the popular TV series. The architecture was spectacular, and I understood why they chose to fill the show there. I also visited a few other locations where the show was filmed.
Accommodation is expensive in Dubrovnik, and so I decided to rent a small luxury villa in Croatia to stay in as it was a cheaper option. I would live in Dubrovnik given the chance. I will for sure be back to visit. Thanks Dubrovnik for making me feel home away from home.
