_ Where to start? The Old Town or ‘Grad’ is a medieval walled, city dating back to the time Brits were just coming out of the woods! Dubrovnik used to be a city state, like the Vatican and the locals were exchanging International Trade Treaties when Robin Hood was causing trouble in Sherwood. Enter through medieval gates, walk on marble streets and be struck by the similarity to Venice. No surprise, as the Venetians once occupied the city. Walk the walls and bask in the sun’s shimmering reflection off the magical Adriatic or jump on the chair lift and get another stunning view of the Old Town and the Elaphite Islands, just offshore.

Dubrovnik is over-endowed with great restaurants, but none so wonderfully named as Lady Pi Pi! Guests are greeted by a most immodest statue, (picture left, study carefully), wihich gives the Restaurant its unforgettable name. The food is also excellent and has good ratings in Trip Advisor. There are restaurants to suite all tastes and pockets. Budget small family restaurants serve great steaks (Dominoes) and shell fish, (Arka), not to mention the already discussed named Lady Pi P. For the gourmets there is Nautika, overlooking the sea and city walls and The Bota Oyster & Sushi Bar for fish caught on the day you eat. During the season all the restaurants serve outside on the marbled pavements, which adds to the buzz and excitement during the evening hours, with musicians circulating from table to table, restaurant to restaurant, amidst the aromas of grilled fresh shell fish and other delicacies.
