    Beginning your journey in the south of mainland Croatia, Dubrovnik takes at least a full day to truly explore. Historic and timeless, the city is full of casual coffee houses, enchantingly narrow streets and is the perfect place to catch shimmering sunsets ricocheting off the ancient ramparts. A stroll on foot through the Old Town is not to be missed, with its sun-drenched gardens, designer boutiques and modern galleries. The Stradum that cuts through the old city is the ultimate place to stop at a chic café or stylish bar for an evening drink and watch the world go by. Or if you prefer, spend some time onboard the yacht and trace a scenic route from the Fort of St Lawrence, past the magnificent cliffs to the Bay of Zupa Dubrovacka.
