I am a senior meeting up with relatives in Korcula. Don't want to arrive in Dubrovnik and whip off to the island - want to see the city by myself if necessary first. So. If I arrive in Dubrovnik in the afternoon, I can see hostels to stay in online, not far from buses and ferries. Question 1: What's the best way to see Dubrovnik alone? Do they have tour buses you can get? Question 2: I have soft luggage on a wheel cart (going on a boat, so can't take hard luggage). Is it easier to go by bus or ferry (where I could leave my luggage, presumably, like in Greece, and have a seat and walk around, etc,) If I took the bus, I can't afford to miss it because of overcrowding. Would it make sense to go to the airport to get this bus, to be sure? Or can you get tickets the day before etc. Sorry for being so long in this post, but while I am looking forward to travelling, I have family back home freaking out at me being 'alone' in the wide world! Hope you understand. Any recommendations of accomodation, etc, would also be very much appreciated.
