The Cable Car is a Fantastic Excursion from a Villa near Dubrovnik

by Saron Lease 3rd April 2024

The new Cable Car has given a villa near Dubrovnik a lift in Croatia!

For villas, Dubrovnik is the most sought after Croatian villa destination. And on any Dubrovnik holiday, a ride on Dubrovnik’s Cable Car is a must! Since it’s reopening, it has brought breath taking views of Dubrovnik Old Town to guests of  nearby villas and hotels. If you’ve ever seen the breath-taking aerial views of the old town, this is where they were taken. The cable car was originally opened in 1969 but after falling out of use it has has been reopened to huge success. But apart from linking the Dubrovnik beaches at sea level with the great viewpoints, it has also opened up the stunning Srd Hill area of Dubrovnik. Now getting from Srd Hill to the old town has become much easier. It’s now a great Dubrovnik excursion in its own right and a rather desirable place for both holidays and events.

Fantastic Views from the Panorama Restaurant

While the Cable Car is one of the best Dubrovnik activities, it’s also a great plan to book a table for lunch too at the top. The aptly named Panorama Restaurant has outside and inside tables and you can dine while being mesmerised by the views. As Dubrovnik restaurants go, it is one with the furthest-reaching views! For a really special treat, book a table for dinner and watch the sun set over the Elafiti Islands.

Dubrovnik Weddings & Events

Something to celebrate? There is an Amphitheatre on Srdj that can accommodate up to 120 guests and is available for rent for special occasions or events. This location will leave your guests breathless, whether you organize a wedding or a business lunch. Weddings in Dubrovnik are already well established and sought after. Indeed, couples and wedding guests make the most of these fantastic locations.

Hiking, ATV Buggies & Zip Wire at Dubrovnik Cable Car!

If you’d rather get active then take the hiking trail to the cable car and see Srd hill in a whole different light! Or get an adrenalin hit on an ATV Buggy ride. But if you’re after the ultimate buzz, the how about doing the Zip Wire!
