Ston Croatia

Has anyone taken a side trip to Ston to see the wall? If so I would like to hear about your experience. Where you stayed (if you did), how was the town etc.

Yes, but it was on a day tour of Korcula (so it was a bit of a whirlwind). The bus made a short stop at Ston but not for long enough to climb the wall, which I would have loved to do. The town itself was small but homey (small streets, little farmers market, etc). I have a particular memory of fresh oyster restaurants (I think they have oyster beds right off the water around there). If I'm in that area of Croatia again, I would come back - it was charming (although all of Croatia was that way to me).

Hi Karen, I was there in June and its worthy of a 2-4 hour stop depending on your schedule, but its not a destination stop like Korcula or Dubrovnik would be. We hiked part of the wall and if you go to the high point the view is great. The town is small with a few quaint restraunts and shops to see, but that will only take a short time to visit. It's a good intermediate rest break if traveling from Dubrovnik to points farther north. There are also some winery tours in the area if that interests you also.

Have a great time.

We stayed in Cavtat for six days. Absolutely loved it and the people. Low key. No traffic. No hustle and bustle. We took side trips to Korcula and Dubrovnik. Both are developed, restored,and interesting enough. We had planned to spend a night or two in one of the towns, but glad we didn't. As a rest stop to Kocula we stopped at Ston. I think it is worthy of several hours of exploration. It is a work in progress so you can appreciate how the walls were constructed. Far few tourists so it is not like running through cattle corrals.
