For the couple who: Loves beach vacays with a fun night scene in a historic locale
Where to stay: Down the coast from Old Town, the Grand Villa Argentina (from $257) is a plush, luxe resort (definitely get a spa treatment!) and has a pathway to the crystal-clear Adriatic beach.
Eat here: Go local at Tovjerna Sesame, a 200-year-old family home serving coastal Croatian cuisine. Get a seat outside and try the delicious grilled Adriatic squid. At the casual Tavern Lokanda-Peskarija on the Old Harbor, you’ll get a delicious fish dinner followed by drinks at the bar with the locals.
Must-dos: Walk the one-mile city wall and look at Old Town’s labyrinth of car-free roads. Head to the Old Port where sailors run trips to some of Croatia’s thousand-plus islands. Feel daring? Go to the notorious nude beaches on nearby Lokrum Island.
