Famous, charming, attractive, admired by anyone with eyes and photographed by anyone with a camera - Dubrovnik is the celebrity of the Mediterranean.

Why hire a car at Dubrovnik Airport?

That all important first mile - driving out of Dubrovnik Airport:

60-second guide to Dubrovnik airport

in its own head

"Lord Byron called us 'The Pearl of the Adriatic' and today we're the still the jewel in Croatia's crown, a walled city perched dramatically above the sea."

but more realistically

The coastline is indeed dramatic and the medieval walls impressive, but Dubrovnik is also a city with a vibrant artistic tradition, and you'll find plenty of culture along with cool bars, cafes and shops.

the vibe

Nearby Italy has strongly influenced the city, particularly in the abundance of cafes and gelaterias. Popular with visitors, yes, but great care is taken to stave off too much commerciality.

the natives

A welcoming, hospitable and indeed enterprising lot, many Croatians have opened up their homes to tourists and rent out rooms.

the weather

Typically Mediterranean, with dry, hot summers and soggy, wet winters. In spring and autumn, the climate is still pleasant and there are far fewer crowds.

the local speciality

Very Italian, with lots of pasta, risotto and fish dishes. Try prsut, delicious air-dried Dalmatian ham, and also the local cheeses.

the celebrity

From the world of film (John Malkovich) to the world of football (Roman Abramovich), Dubrovnik is an A-list hotspot.

did you know?

Nearly 70% of the city's buildings suffered rocket and grenade damage during the Balkan Wars.

they say

"Those who are looking for paradise on earth should visit Dubrovnik." - George Bernard Shaw.

Dubrovnik airport Q&A

Where are the car hire desks?

The car rental desks are located right outside the arrivals hall. Land. Get your bags. Get your car. Get on with your holiday.

What should I buy at duty free?

Croatian wines and olive oil are available, but look out for locally handmade jewellery for a souvenir that will last you a lifetime and support small businesses in Dubrovnik.

Are there any cashpoints?

ATM's are available in the arrivals hall, as is a bureau de change. It may be worth withdrawing enough for your first few days; outside the airport and the walls of the Old Town, cash machines can be costly.

Where's the best place to eat?

A selection of drinks and sandwiches are available in the snack bar situated in the terminal building.

The secret tip

When strolling about the Old Town, don't assume all tables and chairs are waiting for thirsty tourists. Dubrovnik is a historic town and it welcomes visitors, but it's also home to many residents and some of the outdoor seating belongs to them. If there's no canopy, menu, or waiter outside, move along.

Dubrovnik airport the gateway to...

Dubrovnik Old Town

Distance: 13 miles

Described as the 'Pearl of the Adriatic' and listed by UNESCO, the United Nations body for cultural excellence, as a World Heritage Site, the Old Town is undoubtedly something special. Park your hire car in town and take the 2km stroll along the city walls to see for yourself what makes it so spectacular.

Fort Lovrijenac

Distance: 13 miles

Just beyond the walls of the city sits the Lovrijenac Fort. Once responsible for protecting the city from naughty, invading Venetians, the fort is now open to the public and used as a theatre during their annual Summer Festival.

Molunat

Distance: 13 miles

If you're looking for more than an urban experience, drive along the coast towards the Montenegro border to Molunat. This collection of bays and islands shows a different side of Dubrovnik. A popular spot for diving and fishing, this is the place to go to for a day of laid back living.
