Dubrovnik for 10 nights with 2 young children

We're spending 10 nights in Dubrovnik from 23rd May, staying in the Importanne Resort with a 5 yr old and 18month old.

We don't want to rent a car because we spend all our time driving at home!

Any recommendations for day trips, assuming we don't want to travel anymore than 2 hrs each way by public/private transport?

Any recommendations of things to do with young children- eg zoo?

Is bringing a buggy wise assuming there's so many steps in the city? Wud a baby carrier that my husband could wear on his back be better?

How much would a taxi cost from airport to the resort?

Will the weather be warm/clammy?

I think the weather will be ok at the end of May. I've stayed at the Importanne resort and outside is the start of the bus line into the city so you always get a seat. You can get to Gruz where the ferries go from easily and visit islands and also on local buses - look up Jadrolinija for boats and Libertas for buses to go to Cavtat and other places.

It might be worth booking a transfer from the airport at a set rate.

You could also head out to the Elaphite Islands along with what Jude C has given you! Maybe even up to Ston!

You definitely won't want a buggy in Dubrovnik. The stairs are literally everywhere. Baby carrier for SURE!
