Choosing the best accommodation when visiting Dubrovnik is to a large extent determined by individual requirements and preferences. It should be appreciated that, in general , the accommodations that afford the best views are those situated higher on the mountain and hills. It is also important to remember that among the essential charms of Dubrovnik , it is our authentic history that attracts visitors, and so for the contemporary tourist and visitor, this means that one should anticipate narrow passageways and staircases, and at times strenuous walks and climbs, rather than elevators, wide roadways, or modern conveniences. It is vital to check with your Host or booking agent to ensure your accommodation suits your level of fitness and mobility requirements.
