The Hotel President was a couple of miles from the walled city of Dubrovnik.  It was fantastic setting with the hotel slopping down toward the water.  Elevators went diagonally down (and up) the hill.  It was a lot easier to walk the stairs.  The hotel had really nice rooms overlooking the Adriatic Sea and the best buffet meals of the trip.  We had to compete with a large group that stayed at the hotel for the Special Olympics.

We stayed three nights in Dubrovnik.  Our first morning was a tour of the walled city.  It was raining again and the streets were empty.  You just have to see the pictures.  We had a personal tour of the Fanciscan Monastery and the third oldest pharmacy (1317) in Europe.  It was operated by the monks.  3,000 people live inside the city walls.

Some special places we visited included:  Rector's Palace, the Cathedral, and St. Ignatius Church.

The only drawback with no crowds, we could not walk the city wall because of the wind and rain.  But the streets, churches and other buildings had no crowds.

We had a wonderful pasta meal at Domino Restaurant.  We were treated with extra wine - nice touch in the bad weather.

In the afternoon we went to Cavtat.  Returned to our hotel for dinner, attended a private Folklore dance and music show and returned to the walled city for a classical music concert at St. Saviour's Church that was in front of Little Onofrio's Fountain.

The next day was a full day to visit the country of Montenegro (officially Serbia & Montenegro).
