Walking around the Dubrovnik Old Town Walls
The weather had now cleared and with the prospect of blue skies we decided to go up to the cable car to have a better view of Dubrovnik. Once out of the gate we walked up the one-way street that runs around the walls. It was full of cars and coaches making their way down to the main gates below.
The Dubrovnik Cable Car
We passed a couple of shops selling tickets for the cable car as we walked through a tunnel following the signs to the cable car. At the top of the steps we were next to the fire station where all the traffic made the turn to the Old Town.
It was only a short walk up to the terminus of the cable car and there we joined a short queue for tickets. After passing through the turnstile we waited for the cable car. When one arrived, passengers were carefully counted onto it. We were the first in the queue for the next car and so I was able to stand at the front and have an unobstructed view of the Old Town as the cable car climbed up and away.
At the top of the ride we went out onto the viewing platform is to get a better look at the Old Town below us.
Further up the dirt road we came to a fort where men from Dubrovnik had fought to protect the town during the Civil War.
The surrounding countryside was almost empty as far as the eye could see on all sides. Behind the terminus building was a hut that was hiring out rides on ATVs that went into the surrounding countryside.
There was a stepped area that provided great views and we sat and watched the world. This is the view up towards the cable car terminus and the restaurant.
Then we decided to catch the cable car back down.
