The Old Town is practically the old part of Dubrovnic, the one with narrow stone paved streets and old buildings, so it is worth seeing it. After you are done with the visit, you can easily stop by at the beach and spend the rest of the day in a very pleasant manner.
• See the Luza Square
The Luza Square is one of the ancient jewels of Dubrovnic, visiting it will make you feel like stepping into a world that does not exist anymore.

• Experience the Stradun
Stradun is actually the center of the city, with gorgeous limestone paved streets, placed where they are since 1468, which give this place a surreal image.

Protecting the city from the Venetian invaders once, it is now more a theater, well-known here for the plays that are housed at the location. So, regardless if you have the chance to see a play here or not, the fort is definitely something you need to visit while in Dubrovnic.
