Traffic Information

Dubrovnik Airport (DBV), also known as Cilipi airport is 29.4 miles from the Old Town center. However, you can easily reach the Old Town in around 20 minutes via the scenic D8 coastal road. Although traffic can be heavier at certain times, it is the best and most direct route, especially if you are new to the region. It is also easy to drive to or from our branch in the city on local roads. Alternatively, take the number 2 or 4 buses from stops close to your hotel.

Most hotels have parking spaces for guests who choose car rental in Dubrovnik. The city has modern, well-maintained roads and is a pleasure to drive through, although the walled Old Town is a car- free zone. However, there are several parking lots nearby and the most convenient include by Ploce Gate in Petra Kresimira Street, Frana Supila Street, and behind the northern walls near Buza Gate. You must purchase a ticket before parking and display it clearly behind the windshield.

Sixt Sightseeing Tips

Like all really great tourist destinations, the city can sometimes be expensive. However, if you rent a car in Dubrovnik you will be able to shop like the locals who make the 3 mile drive to the village of Cibaca and the inexpensive Lidl supermarket. A great way to stock up for road trips and visits to the beach and countryside.

Dubrovnik has always been a history enthusiast's dream. However, in recent years, its historic sites have experienced a massive surge in popularity thanks to the acclaimed television series, "Game of Thrones". Exploring is essential for GOT fans and you will discover many notable locations by accident as you drive through the city in your comfortable rental vehicle. Dubrovnik has stood in for exotic places like Qarth and King's Landing among others.

Dubrovnik is also known for its warren like Old Town, its city walls, the old port, and the medieval gates. Must see landmarks include the Pile Gate, Lovrijenac Fort and the Minceta Tower. It is also a haven for art and culture fans and a fixture on the summer festival circuit. Of course, when you rent a car, all of the dramatic Croatian coastline is at your disposal and a short drive will take you to some terrific places.

What to Do in Dubrovnik in Winter 2020

Dubrovnik is a beautiful coastal city in Croatia that has become insanely popular due to its use as a main set on the hit television show, Game of Thrones. This means that winter can be a more favorable time to visit. Temperatures can be in the mid-40s to low-50s from December until April. Dubrovnik celebrates the coldest season with its annual Winter Festival, dressing the fortresses in decoration and setting up long lines of Advent stalls selling specialized food and drinks. You can also find the Festival of St Blaise on February 2, celebrated since the year 972. Visitors can expect church concerts, exhibitions and theater performances. Although temperatures can get cold and it may even snow, that is no reason not to wrap up and walk the city walls or marvel at the ancient architecture. Any fan of Game of Thrones can also take an official tour of key set locations at any time of the year. Dubrovnik also has some of the best traditional winter foods of the region, so cozy up in a nice tavern or restaurant for a Croatian feast. When driving in Dubrovnik it is advised to go for a more compact city car due to the narrower roads. If you wish to go further out into Croatia, an SUV may be the way to go.
