This is an incredibly relaxing place - there is something about the place that makes you just instantly chill. Lined with shops and restaurants of all descriptions with a few churches and museums thrown in for good measure, the town offers something for everyone.

Cavtat Old Town

Reviewed By aesta - Toronto, Canada

We came to visit two times. The first visit was a private tour but our guide just let us roam the town. There is everything you need from banks to groceries and a fresh produce stall. Restaurants and gift shops line the streets. It is a nice walk after looking at old walls.

Vlaho Bukovac House

Reviewed By Valerie T - Bedford, United Kingdom

We had never heard of this artist, but picked up about the house/exhibition from a tour brochure. In Cavtat, we asked the way to the house and everyone knew where it was - up one of the side paths from the main Promenade. If you like art then it was interesting to view the pictures. If you are into history then it was fascinating to walk around Bukovac's house and read about him, his family and some of the history of Cavtat. A pleasant way to spend an hour.

Cavtat Cemetery

Reviewed By LemurLes - Suffolk

Walking round the shoreline from the port, there is a path upwards by a cafe. At the T junction, turn right and continue up. The mausoleum/cemetery is a place of tranquillity, with great views over the inlet towards Dubrovnik and its coast. Some of the tombs are quite ornate, although you need to watch where you are going, as there are many quite steep steps, and occasionally open tombs. Walking down the hill, then continuing on the path, rather than returning on the coast walk brings you into the further part of the town. You then have the option of returning back along the coast path, or taking a short cut into the port area through the town.
A nice way to walk off breakfast or for a leisurely stroll of an hour or so.

Reviewed By catbells55 - cheshire

The Church is right on the Harbour/marina. It is a beautiful sight to see and is lovely to visit inside as well. The Church is open most of the time. `It is also floodlit at night.

Ronald Brown Pathway

Reviewed By Martin F - London, United Kingdom

Great views but it's a killer on the legs and feet. All the paths are just loose rocks and they ripped my walking shoes to shreds. Restaurant is now closed which was not good as no one told us and the final climb which is easy to miss to the cross is extremely steep and probably classed as dangerous in the U.K.

Church of Our Lady of the Snow

Reviewed By travelmakesUrich - Rocky Mount, North Carolina

When you travel through Europe, you see a lot of churches and a lot of Castles, so it's hard to get excited about each one - they're all special in their own way. You'll see in the photos here on TripAdvisor a group of small metal plates that show representations of an arm or a leg - they're all collected into one framed piece. Each of those was produced and offered as a request for prayer for that body part.
