The pick of the picnic locations
The mountain overlooking the city has become a hugely popular venue for sunset-watching. Join the crowds near the cable-car station or walk west along the ridge to find a quiet spot of your own.
Reached from the Old Town by regular boat, the green island of Lokrum is one big picnic destination, with a wealth of shoreline paths, shady gardens, and olive groves.
Renaissance Dubrovnik was full of Renaissance gardens, only fragments of which survive today. The only one in anything like its original shape is at Trsteno, 13km to the northwest, where you’ll find any number of shady paths and quiet corners.
The island of Lopud is crisscrossed by paths linking the main settlement on the western coast with Sunj Beach on the east. It’s never too difficult to find an idyllic spot with a good sea view.
