Croatia is a hotspot destination in the Mediterranean - it’s more affordable than many places in Europe and offers beautiful beaches, island hopping, and tons of historical sites to explore. One of the most popular cities to visit in Croatia is Dubrovnik. It is the picturesque filming location of the TV series, Game Of Thrones, and its world famous City Walls offer the most beautiful views of the Adriatic Coast. Summers in Dubrovnik can be pretty hot and humid, and the terrain within the city is mostly cobblestone streets and steep stairways so make sure you pack with comfort in mind.
Pack the Right Stuff for your Trip to Dubrovnik
Clothes that breathe so that you can too
Pack clothing that is lightweight and breathable to make your journey along the wall a little more bearable. Whether you opt for a flowy sundress or a cute shorts ensemble, make sure your outfit is photo ready against that magnificent ocean backdrop.
Shoes that are made for walkin’
You’ll be encountering uneven surfaces and steep stairways along the 1.2 mile City Walls hike so be sure to wear comfortable shoes. Flat shoes are best but if you must, a pair of low wedge sandals with ankle support is a stylish alternative!
Stuff the crown of your hat with small items, then place flat at the bottom of your suitcase and layer items around it to save space
Shade from the heat
Temperatures in the summer can go up to 104° fahrenheit, so protecting yourself from the heat as you hike the City Walls is essential. A wide brim hat in combination with sunblock will help prevent looking like a lobster for the rest of your trip.
Don’t get caught in the rain
Travel with a light rain jacket because sudden summer rain storms are a thing. You’ll want something that isn’t too bulky so that you can carry it in your purse or day pack at all times.
Take your look from day to night
An evening out in the city of Dubrovnik calls for slightly dressier yet comfortable attire. To lighten the load, pack items that you can dress down during the day and dress up at night with a few accessories and a swipe of lipstick.
