Let us show you something really different and unique! This is totally STAYLICIOUS CROATIA!
Few minutes south of Dubrovnik is the ancient Roman settlement of Cavtat and the Konavle valley-the very southernmost part of Croatia before it meets the coastline and mountainous terrain of Montenegro. Combining Cavtat and Konavle makes a wonderful day tour that takes you from a historic seaside village into the hidden interior of KOnavle.
Cavtat’s past, present, and future are very closely tied to Dubrovnik, and this historically rich area is a delight – its Old Town is full of narrow streets and cobbled alleys, and its serpentine waterfront promenade that frames a picturesque harbor is simply charming. After visiting Cavtat, we continue into the beautiful interior of the area known as the Konavle. Framed by the southern mountains of Herzegovina and Montenegro, its small population lives in some 32 picturesque villages scattered across this south-eastern part of Croatia.
