Less than 20km along the coast from Dubrovnik and only 10 minutes by taxi from Dubrovnik airport, the charming harbour town of Cavtat is one of Croatia’s best kept secrets.

The City of Cavtat Originally the Ancient Greek settlement of Epidaurus, Cavtat perches on an Arcadian wooded peninsula set between two brilliant blue bays. A wide promenade, fringed with palm trees, arches around the harbour front bordered by beaches on one side and delightful bars from which to watch a glorious sunset on the other. Backing away from the shimmering seafront is the colourful Old Town, with its cobbled streets and traditional red-roofed houses, revealing a wealth of predominantly Renaissance treasures, including the 16th-century Rector's Palace and an intriguing 15th-century Franciscan monastery.
