The main street in Dubrovnik old town is always busy with tourists, especially when there are multiple cruise ships in port. We try and go early in the morning before the crowds arrive, or else in the evening - both are good times to experience...More
As with most attractions in Dubrovnik timing is everything, once the cruise ships have disembarked Stradun gets very busy.
We went either early about 8:30 or late after 18:00 and enjoyed hassle free access to enjoy the shops and architecture.
In the evening musicians play...More
We arrived the day after torrential rain which left buildings and roads flooded. The old, worn limestone paving was slippery and the iron gratings had been turned upside down so they curved over the drains instead of lying flush with the gutters creating a trip...More
Yes, it's a very busy honeypot in an UNESCO world heritage site, so why not beat the crowd and just once in your holiday set an alarm and come down in the early morning?
I came down at 7am, the light was beautiful for photography...More
We just loved the Stradun! Talk about great people watching! The best! People who have been to a concert, wedding, art gallery opening as well as backpackers and every type of person you can imagine. We loved sitting in Congo Stradun at the pavement tables...More
I give it an excellent rating only because we walked down Stradun early in the morning before the tourists arrived. We basically had the street to ourselves. But I've also seen the Stradun jampacked with tourists so my tip: walk the Stradun early in the...More

Dubrovnik Čilipi Airport has the code: DBV (not LIM). assuming that you mean to travel to DBV, as other have said transfers take 30-40 minutes and there are scheduled bus services from the Airport to the town. Of course there are taxis too, but I don't know the prices.
However, Dubrovnik Airport does not handle many flights - I was there at Christmas and the schedule for the day was less than ten flights. So don't expect buses to run every 10 minutes.
Also beware of the Bora wind, which I believe can blow at any time of the year. Because of the high and exposed site of DBV Airport when the Bora wind blows then flights stopped. This happened to us on December 29. British Airways bussed us all the way to Split Airport - that's 4 hours by road and delayed our departure by almost 7 hours.
Much of Croatia is a long thin country bounded by the sea on one side and mountains on the other side. There aren't any motorways in the south and it takes a long time to drive from one part to the next. If your flight lands or takes off from Sarajevo or Split then be prepared for a long slow transfer.
Croatia is a lovely country and Dubrovnik is a "must see" which is worth 2 or 3 days of your time. After that get to Mostar (in Bosnia) and Montenegro.
