Best Time to Visit With Return Flights to Dubrovnik
The best time to visit Dubrovnik is during the city’s shoulder season. From September to October, you'll miss the summer crowds, and the temperatures are still warm enough for long days at the beach. Budget travellers will easily find cheap flights to Dubrovnik and hotels drop their rates to make up for the seasonal lull. November to April is low season in Dubrovnik. The cold temperatures and frequent rainstorms keep most travellers away. A lot of the main tourist attractions also close during these months, meaning you'll have to get creative with your itinerary.
On the plus side, return flights to Dubrovnik are cheap, and you'll be able to stay in some of the city's best hotels for a fraction of the cost. The gorgeous summer months of May to August are an excellent time to visit Dubrovnik. The Dalmatian Coast is at its best, and you can spend your days island hopping or taking part in the popular Yacht Week event. The only downside is that prices for hotels in and an airfare to Dubrovnik skyrocket. You'll need to book your holiday well in advance if you want to avoid the increase in rates and snag your first choice hotel.
Top Experiences For Visitors in Croatia on an Airfare to Dubrovnik
The Old City Walls
The Old City Walls are one of the main reasons people buy flights to Dubrovnik. Built in the 10th century, the walls wind around the city for two kilometres and are over six metres tall. While you're strolling along, be sure to visit the Minceta and Bokar Towers as well as the two forts.
Dubrovnik Cathedral and Treasury
If you're a fan of religious history, buy your plane tickets to Dubrovnik and make your way to the city’s Cathedral and Treasury. It's a Baroque-style building and is famous for its beautiful interior decor. There are paintings from the 16th and 18th centuries as well as a piece by the legendary artist Raphael.
The Square of the Loggia
The Square of the Loggia boasts some of the city's most famous buildings. Once your flights to Dubrovnik have landed, make your way to the square and spend a few hours exploring all the sights. Some of the top attractions include Orlando's Column, the Loggia of the Bells and the Church of St. Blaise.
The Rector's Palace is another excellent example of Gothic and Renaissance-style architecture. It's home to the city's Cultural Historical Museum, and it's where you can find exhibitions detailing life during Croatia's medieval years as well as beautiful paintings by Dalmation artists.
Public Transport and How to Get Around
Dubrovnik Airport (DBV)
