Mrs Maximus and I are trying to find a pleasant place to go on holiday somewhere we've not been before for a few days in November, and a friend of mine recommended Dubrovnik.
So, a couple of basic questions:
1. Is November a good time to visit?
2. Is Dubrovnik a good destination if we're visiting Croatia. or are there better places to visit? (as this is a Croatia forum, I''ll be quite content if replies are limited to other places in Croatia, but actually we're pretty much considering the whole of Europe at the moment!)
3. How easy is it to get out of the city and visit scenic bits of surrounding countryside?
To give you an idea of what sort of things we like, without which I realise it's very hard to answer those questions, we're a middle aged British couple, and we like the sort of things you'd stereotypically expect us to like: nice restaurants, wandering around by scenic bits of harbours, sitting in a bar overlooking the sea sipping whatever the popular local aperitif is (unless it's anything like ouzo; I detest ouzo) interesting bits of old architecture, museums, walks in the country, that sort of thing. Discos and nightlife definitely not required.
Many thanks for any thoughts!
