dubrovnik accomodation and must see sites


has anyone got any recommendations for budget accomodation for a woman travelling alone to dubrovnik?

Also can anyone suggest any must see sites? I'm only going for 2 days and don't want to miss anything. I like to visit historical sites and I'm interested in art but I also like visiting the countryside - is it possible to get to any of the islands for a day trip?

Thanks in advance

Also if you would like to view our photos and watch a video on Dubrovnik we have both on our personal travel journal

you will want to go into PHOTOS and Where we've been sections. In the photo area if you check out the bonus albums it will give you some idea of cheap eats and authentic arts and crafts you might want for souvenirs.

All those places are fine, but just to walk the walls of the city , stroll the streets, go out by the marina watch the boats come in, sit on the benches watch the ocean break on the rocks, take the boat to the island close by, spend a few hours swimming, enjoying, thats what I loved most about Dubrovnik. Then sit out on the bar that overhangs over the walls of Dubrovnik, have a drink and watch the sunset.

I agree that walking the walls and around the old town was a highlight for me. Swimming in the very clear water was fun, too. I was there for two days, and that was more than long enough for me in Dubrovnik.

Last Sept. we stayed at Apartments Amoret, and very very satisfied. I also had correspondence with Karmen Apartments, but they had no rooms available. I corresponded with Marc, who owns the apartments and is British.
