Don't miss the museum, it does have an admission charge, there is no bathroom and no public toilet. It is air conditioned; you are not allowed to take photos in the museum. The signs are minimal, but you can buy a guide that explains.

Dear Visitors of Dubrovnik! We have been to the Monastery garden and Pharmacy Museum in 2017. Entrance ticket price was normal, compare to Dubrovnik prices. The garden of the Monastry is amazing, something that is finally not crowded, silent and cozy. Really nice location for...More

Lots of parking just outside the city walls but there are also lots of tourists. It may be more difficult to park than you might imagine so turn up early. Parking is also expensive. We took the road south which passes the... More
