What a lovely day trip. The TRSTENO Arboretum was a summer residence and garden built in 1494. It is an easy to reach, two buses, traveling along stunning vistas of the Adriatic coast. The fountain, aqueduct and a mill with an olive-press are worth the visit alone. The fact that this is where Sansa meets Olenna Tyrell and has a... More

Trsteno is several miles north of Dubrovnik. The taxi drivers at the cruise terminal said they would take 40 US dollars or about 35 Euros to drive three of us there. It wasn't a metered thing, just a verbal agreement before we left. There is also a public bus that goes back and forth between Trsento and Dubrovnik, but the... More

Not too far from Dubrovnik, this peaceful place is worth a visit. It has a nice historic feel to it and good sea views. It doesn't take too long to mooch around, not more than an hour at best. The harbour below is also worth a visit, very quaint.

Great gardens we had limited time there and was December. Longer would be better and with things in bloom would be marvelous . Probably very cool (temperature) in a hot summers day. The coastal drive also most enjoyable, Parking A nightmare.

Not so far from Dubrovnik, it is a sancuary for peace and quiet. This is a garden with a lot of various trees and plants and it is so lovely to see it outside of the crowded Dubrovnik. Look to the see is beautiful.

We came to Trsteno at Sunday at our return back from Dubrovnik and place was open for visitors. That was our first positive impression. They work even at Sunday, out of holiday season (November). We were able to look around and sneak at every corner of this wonderfull place thanks to very kind people who work at arboretum. They even... More

It offers you a really nice peaceful vibe and view. You can have island and sea vibe on the other side and at the other place nice and quiet foresty vibe. It's really worth to visit

If you want a nice contrast with the extremely busy Old Town of Dubrovnik, the Arboretum is just 20 km away. We spent a couple of hours there walking past the many labeled trees, and also took the road down to the coast. On top of that it was interesting to see that it was the place of some of... More

Make sure you know what you're going to before you set out. It is not a polished, shiny tourist resort. Cost 45kn (£5.50) to get in, kids were free. Villa currently being investigated with a view to refurb. Currently full of photos of what it looked like circa 1900 - 1930. Fountains and fish a gorgeous spot for a picnic.... More
