We stay on the gorgeous Lapad Peninsula, which is next to the Old Town
 of Dubrovnik. With its pebbly beaches, 
a colourful harbour and a gorgeous coastline, this really is an ideal destination for your escorted holiday.

The perfectly preserved streets and buildings within the city walls will make you feel as though you have stepped back in time to
the 12th century, and you will find yourself visiting the Old Town time and again during the holiday. The local bus from Lapad to the Old Town only takes 15 minutes and drops
 you off right outside the Pile Gate, the main entrance through the walls into the centre. From here you can climb 600-year-old castle walls to take in the fantastic views across
 the Adriatic or wander along the main thorough fare, Stradun, with its ornate medieval fountain, shops and pavement 
cafes.

Accommodation

Valamar Club Hotel

The 3 star Valamar Club Dubrovnik Hotel, highly rated by TripAdvisor, is located in the Lapad peninsula area of Dubrovnik and has very easy access to the Old Town of Dubrovnik. The whole property is air-conditioned and the bedrooms offer all modern amenities including flat-screen TV, free WiFi, a hairdryer and a safety deposit box, together with an en-suite bathroom and a balcony or terrace. The hotel has a large swimming pool with chairs and sun-loungers and is just 150 metres from the beach.

We stay for 7 nights on a half board basis with breakfast and dinner included every day. All meals are served in the hotel’s main restaurant, which offers Croatian and international cuisine. A main feature of the restaurant is the ‘show cooking’, when many of the dishes are freshly prepared in front of you.

Because of its position on the peninsula, the Valamar Club hotel is surrounded on 3 sides by the sea and beautiful pebbled and rocky beaches, including the famous Copacabana. The buses for the Old Town of Dubrovnik stop close to the hotel.

During our inspection visit to the hotel in 2019 we gave the hotel an ‘excellent’ rating for service and facilities. The Valamar Club Hotel is a great choice for holidaymakers interested in the seaside, Old Town exploring, sightseeing and beautiful coastal scenery.

Please note that on some dates or with high demand we may also use one of Valamar Club’s sister hotels on the peninsula.

Excursions & Itinerary

Guided walking tour of Dubrovnik - Included

We meet up with our guide in the early evening
 and set off on a guided walk of Dubrovnik’s old town, in the prettiest light of the day. From the moment you pass through the city walls you
 will be surrounded by history in one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe, which is
 a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site. The old 
town is crammed within medieval fortifications, and during our pleasant walk around the labyrinth of narrow stone streets you will see famous sights such as St Blaise’s Church, the Onophrian Fountains and the Rectors’ Palace. After the walk, the time is your own to explore under your own steam. Perhaps take a ride on the cable car to the top of Srd Hill, for breathtaking views of the city and beyond. Whatever you decide to do, do take some time out to relax, perhaps with a drink in hand at one of the many bars and restaurants 
and watch the world go by.

Elafiti Islands Cruise - Included

There are more than 1,000 islands in the Adriatic Sea which belong to Croatia – but few are more beautiful than the Elaphite Islands. On this full day island-hopping excursion by boat we’ll visit the two largest islands – Lopud and Sipan – with their gardens full of oranges and lemons, lovely seashores and charming villages with old seamen’s houses. Our first port of call is Lopud, which is the second largest island in the archipelago and is car-free. We’ll have free time to wander around the picturesque old harbour and to see the Franciscan monastery. We’ll then sail on to Sipan, which is the largest of the Elaphite Islands. Whilst here we have an included lunch of typical Dalmatian cuisine, which includes fresh seafood and chicken. After lunch take a stroll along the promenade or perhaps take a dip in the Adriatic.

Korcula & Peljesac including Wine Tasting - Included

Known as ‘Little Dubrovnik’, Korcula town on Korkula island is full of historic sites. Visits to the wine-producing area of Peljesac and the walled village of Ston are the other highlights during this delightful full day excursion. Korcula town is perched on a peninsula in the northeast corner of the island. We’ll reach the town after a boat trip across the Adriatic from Orebic. And once you’ve stepped inside the honey-coloured town walls, you’ll find a slice of vintage Croatia that’s
 all red-roofed tiles and marble streets. As you wander around you’ll be rewarded with sights 
like the ornate St Mark’s Cathedral and the house where locals claim Marco Polo was born. After 
our visit we sail back to the mainland and then
 our journey takes us through the vineyards of the Peljesac Peninsula and on to the walled village of Ston - where we’ll stop and try some of the local wines before returning to our hotel.

The Best of Montenegro - Included

This fascinating full day excursion takes us south from Dubrovnik, to the tiny country of Montenegro. With its rugged mountains, spectacular coastline and medieval villages, it’s one of Europe’s most beautiful and unspoilt countries. After crossing the border our journey takes us around the fjord-like Bay of Kotor, which is dotted with coastal churches and fortified towns. Our first visit is to the baroque seaside town of Perast. From here we’ll visit the small island of Our Lady of the Rocks and the church bearing the same name and which is famous for its 68 baroque style frescos. Then it’s on to Kotor itself, a UNESCO listed town where we’ll have a guided tour through what is, without doubt, one of the best preserved medieval walled cities on the Adriatic. After the tour there will be some free time – perhaps visit St Tryphon Cathedral which is a masterpiece of Romanesque architecture, or just relax over a drink before returning to our hotel in Croatia time for dinner.
