DANCE Head to Dodo for sundowners over Sulic beach (they have swings over the bar), then wander into Old Town for live music. EAT Mlinar bakery has the best cheese and spinach burek. For upmarket Croatian food, treat yourself to Posat just outside Old Town. STAY Fresh Sheets is the sweetest B&B. SHOP Maria has the best boutique buys and runway pieces from Céline, Gucci and Balenciaga that you’ve only seen online. MUST DO Climb the city walls for a view that is breathtakingly surreal. PACK Heeled mules. The city is so beautiful, you’ll want to respect it by dressing up.
