We spent 4 days in the wonderful walled city of Dubrovnik and then took the ferry to the lovely island of Hvar. We stayed in a hotel which was 10 minutes walk from Dubrovnik and walked the city walls and also took a cable car to get an aerial view of the city.  There is a great selection of restaurants to choose from.  There are chic boutiques, modern hotels and stylish bars.  You also have the beaches of the Riviera on your doorstep. After a few days we took the ferry to Hvar and stayed at the lovely harbour town of Hvar.  There are several islands to visit by boat where you can spend a lazy afternoon sampling delicious food and soaking up the sun.  Return to the islands in the evening and dance well into the early hours! We visited the Old Town with the 16th Cathedral and climbed the steps to the Castle from the main square which gave us fantastic views of the harbour.
