My itinerary mistake was made apparent to me by Kristina who have us our keys to our Hvar apartment. The journey from Hvar to Dubrovnik takes most of the day and sets off early so our plan to explore Hvar had to be scrapped, something we were both very disappointed by as the island looks beautiful.
This mistake was mainly because the ferry searches I did online prior to the trip were very confusing. The Jadrolinija website is about the best for ferry information it turns out.
We got the 10.30 catamaran from Hvar to Korcula, another island that looks like a much smaller and quieter Hvar Town. We had just enough time for lunch before getting our 4 hour ferry to Dubrovnik at 14.00 hours. The sea view from our lunch stop was really picturesque, exactly what you would imagine when thinking of a Croatian island.
The ferry journey dragged. There was some very attractive scenery along the way of the mainland and many islands and thankfully it was a calm day but we were both very glad to arrive in the port.
Dubrovnik ferry port is a little way from the Old Town but buses connect it to Pile Square. From there we just had to go into the Old Town and along the Stradun (Main Street) to our apartment which was 20 seconds from the main square- talk about prime location.
After a very brief wander around town we headed out and just up the hill to the cable car entrance where Yummmi cafe was located. It is basically a fast food restaurant that was very well recommended on Trip Advisor. The food is really good quality and it has a nice atmosphere; it also had the 3rd place play off of the football World Cup to keep Fraser happy. We ate this and then headed back to the room for bed.
