Places to visit on our way:
Trsteno is located some 24 km northwest of Dubrovnik. It’s an old fishing village where Dubrovnik noble Ivan Gucetic built his summer residence in the 16th century. Here you can find one of the oldest and most beautiful Arboretums in the entire region.
Once the second major town in the Dubrovnik Republic, today the salt-producing Ston is a lovely settlement with traditional stone facades and forteenth-century walls, often described as „The Chinese wall of Europe". The town is also one of Croatia's Oyster hotspots – don't miss the opportunity to try delicious local seafood.
Peljesac is a scenic peninsula that stretches into the Adriatic Sea, best known for wine-making and beautiful hidden beaches. Lush Mediterranean vegetation and picturesque vineyards that cling to the rocky hillsides will leave you absolutely speechless.
