With many children back to school in September, there are far less families and travelers in Dubrovnik in September. In our opinion, it is one of the best months to visit Dubrovnik because the weather is still very warm and the atmosphere of the city is still great. The cliff bars and restaurants are still full with travelers touring around Croatia, or coming off a Croatia cruise. The hotel prices are considerably lower because September and October are not deemed as peak season.
Heading into October, although the weather and sea temperature is cooling down, Dubrovnik still offers sunshine and a great atmosphere in October. For those who don’t enjoy walking around the city in really hot temperatures, this is a great time for you to explore Dubrovnik. The cruising season is May until mid October so, towards the end of the month, the city starts to noticeably quieten down.
