Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is called the “Pearl of the Adriatic”. Situated on the Dalmatian coast, this late-medieval Old Town of Dubrovnik is protected by walls that run uninterrupted for 1.2 miles (6,360 ft) in length and reach a maximum height of about 82 ft. We entered the walls at the Gate of Pila and walked the entire stretch to be treated by unforgettable panoramic views of the rugged cliffs, turquoise sea, old streets, and the reddish-brown terra-cotta roofs.

Since cars are not allowed in the Old Town, Rohan had a blast just running along Stradun, a limestone-paved pedestrian street that makes a good place for shopping, eating and people-watching! We swam in the warm waters of Banje beach outside the Old Town; this pebble beach provided a spectacular view of the city walls.
