Day and a half in Dubrovnik

We have an overnight stay in Dubrovnik on our July cruise, and I'm working on our itinerary while there. We're looking at walking tours of the old town and walking the city walls, but looking for thoughts for the evening time. We like to do food tours, and wondering if this is a good idea in Dubrovnik? Are there perhaps other night time activities that are available that I'm not aware of? Appreciate thoughts, etc.

Reserve a table at Panorama restaurant on Mt. Srd. Was probably my Dubrovnik highlight. Amazing view, excellent service and the food was top notch. Well worth the splurge, and honestly compared to most restaurants in town it didn’t feel like that much of a splurge. Time things so you’re up there around sunset, views are much better from atop the old fort which also houses a compelling (if dense) museum on the siege of Dubrovnik.

After dinner, unwind with a cocktail at Buza II and contemplate your good fortune.

There are evening walking tours by a lovely woman called Haunted-Dubrovnik. They are very inexpensive and she takes you to the hidden corners of the old town. The stories are interesting too. You can book online.

You can also take an evening boat ride on a replica ship around the walls and Watch the sun set. They have some Minor Entertainment but it can be very romantic. You can purchase tickets at the TI located on the main street (called the Stradun) just across from the water fountain.

The walls around the city close early, not open in the evening. During your wall walk you can stop for a drink and/or ice-cream. You can also pop into the Maritime museum, there is an entrance half way around, then continue your walk. It’s very inexpensive and also has a bathroom - always worth the price.

We have eaten at Panorama on Mt Srd and while the food is good the prices are very, very high. You could compare them to a meal in Midtown Manhattan. Just letting you know. If you want to eat some local food, look for a smaller place that has čevapčiči or burek.

Another vote for visiting Mt. Srd at sunset. We did not have dinner there, but the view and the museum are both worthwhile.
