Taxi station Lapad is nearby and the hotel reception will order a taxi on Your request.
4.) Where can I do some shopping?
The Old City is a place for shopping, but do not hesitate to look through each alley, because You never know what kind of a new authentic store You will find. Beside many souvenir shops, You will find many small businesses such as lace-makers, jewelers and embroiderers selling their handmade products.
In the newer part of Dubrovnik You can also find some brand shops for shoes, clothes, cosmetics, and accessories (Shopping Malls “Minčeta”, “Mercante”or the nearest one “DOC”). Or You can visit a large shopping center "SUB City" outside Dubrovnik (ask at the front desk where you can take a bus line number 10. Ask the bus driver at which stop you need to exit).
5.) Which excursions do You recommend?
If You are longing for a true serenity, visit Island of Lokrum, especially popular among couples in love, nature and history worshipers and many others. Take a regular boat line from the Old Town port, which runs every half an hour. Once there, You can visit the Botanical Garden, Olive Garden, Benedictine Monastery, Dead Sea, and other interesting sites. Enjoy Your coffee or lunch in one of the restaurants.
Another idea is renting a car and driving through villages around Dubrovnik where locals are waiting to share their stories with You while You can enjoy a glass of local wine and cuisine.
If you are up to a whole day trip, you should not miss visiting Island of Mljet, one of the eight National Parks in Croatia. Another alternative is to visit three islands – Elaphite Archipelago.
