There is no vehicle access into the old town at all, and parking near the town walls is at a premium. As the previous poster has said, with just 2 days in Dubrovnik, most of your time will be taken up with the town itself, though a boat ride across to one of the nearby islands or just cruising around the seaward walls and the islands is a nice way to spend a few hours and rest those worn down sightseeing feet. You'll find good local bus services to get you to the town gate if where you end up staying is too far to walk comfortably.

If sightseeing around the city is all you want to do, two days is enough to do most things.

Last October, I pulled into the first car park you come to upon entering the town, just outside the walls of the old town, around 4 PM, just to get by bearings and use the rest room. (there is only one way in and out of Dubrovnik) The guy running the car park asked me if I needed a room. I said maybe. He took me to a woman renting very nice little room perhaps 100 feet from the car park. They also had a free parking space! Very tight squeeze getting and the woman's husband had get the car into their little enclosure...worth a shot...this place was about 200 feet from the entrance to the old town, right at the bus stop.

One full day is enough to see the old town...

For some people one day is enough to see Dubrovnik. For others it isn't. When we were there last may we extended our stay by two days (to a total of five) and we can't wait to go back to Dubrovnik again :-)

There is a difference between just "seeing" a place, and actually visiting it, you now.

From my point of view:
- Lapad is a good area at just 15 minutes by bus from the old city; buses run very often, plus, there is at least one beach nearby
- Dubrovnik: One full day or 1,5 days is enough (I think); two days, more than enough

The old town is gorgeous and an easy walk to the beach. We stayed at Villa Flora which was wonderful. Right in the old town, quiet, private, very cheap and perfect. Dubrovnik is beautiful but small so 2 nights should be OK.

Yes...just noticed the day as I pressed 'send'! Never mind...

Travel Tips for Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is about history: let's remember

by bicycle_girl

Dubrovnik is a really old city. Thousands of years actually. Now history was made also in 1995 and also destroyed when gazillions of bombed fell off on the old city. On the picture attached is a picture of where the bombed fell on the city, and where fires were started. Nowwadays the workers are still constructing what has been destroyed, but unfortunately several historical buildings were lost. Let's remember this. We are all in this together.

New Harbour

by sandysmith

The afternoon of our arrival we took a stroll from the hotel coastal path into the New Harbour and marina area of Dubrovnik - a walk of some 30-40 minutes each way. Lovely golden hues on the water and villas lining the marina as we watched cruise ships come into the port. We always planned to have a stroll round here more in the daytime ..but you know how these plans come and go!

And of course . . . Soccer Crazy!

by acemj

Like pretty much everywhere else on earth, soccer is a passion in Dubrovnik although not to the degree that the locals in Split and Zagreb are nutty about their respective teams. These kids, however, were having a great time kicking the ball around in the Old Town.

Arsenal

by croisbeauty

The Arsenal, situated in the port, consisted of of four separate vaulted areas where the galleys for the defense of the city were docked. Warships for immediate defense were built and maintained here too. Actualy, the Republic owned no other warships but their merchant ships were armed adequately. The walls of the Arsenal were knocked down and opened again when the vessel was completed in order to launch it.
Nowadays it serves as one of the most prestigious coffee house.
