Dubrovnik form the wallsHighlight of this place is walking around the walls (albeit at £9).

I can’t remember seeing such a perfectly walled town containing a strict panorama of terracotta roofs and gothic civic buildings. The fortifications are massive; you feel humbled walking alongside them and impressed as they grow high above the rocky coastline. Each of the angles is protected by a large saint statue. If I had a guidebook I might know who it is.

Dubrovnik main streetThe streets are paved in limestone blocks; polished down the centuries and shining at night.

The fountains, churches and civic buildings are predominantly gothic and wouldn’t look out of place in Venice.

It’s touristy and busy – God knows what it would be like later in the season. A few museums but we have no time to visit them.  AS many East European tourists as the ones from the West, who at least stand a chance to afford the place.

The Italians left  them with good coffee and ice cream.
