Driving to Dubrovnik & Villa Antipodes - From the South
Driving from the south (eg Montenegro) you will find yourself on a coastal road eventually offering you some great views of Dubrovnik. This coastal road will become Jadranska cesta.
Continue on this road until you come to a sign - one for Dubrovnik and one for Split. Take the road that veers to the right - Dubrovnik.
As you are nearing the intersection, get into your left hand lane and make a left turn at the T intersection into Zagrebacka street.
Keep following this one way street, past the large Minceta Tower on the City Walls on your right and keep going down to the Fire Station - this is on your right on the corner.
If you haven't been lucky enough to locate a park on the way down (parking is hard to find), park temporarily in the triangle (in the centre of the intersection) outside the Fire Station so you can unpack your car.
If you miss the Fire Station - all is not lost - just go in a circle - further up the road at the fork, take the right fork, then after that, take a hard right turn back towards the Old Town. After the Ploce Gate entrance to the Old Town you will pass a car parking area on your right - take the next turn to the right and you are back at the same intersection - with the Fire Station on your left - our street is just in front of you!
Hopefully you will find a park in the triangle (if no-one else has got there before you!) Really, it is much easier NOT to bring your car into this central area - believe us, we KNOW!
It is better if you don't leave your car unattended while you unpack as it could get towed.
Now just take your time to walk up the 78 steps to our villa.
You will find number 22 on the right and you will see the sign 'Villa Antipodes' to the left of the double glass doors. You have arrived!! Well done. Now make yourselves at home and thoroughly enjoy your stay.
To park your car, continue to drive down Zagrebacka Street and turn left - there is usually a line of cars waiting to park. You might need to wait a while until one is vacated. Pay for a couple of hours parking at the meter - 5 kuna per hour then see the instructions for paying by mobile that are available on the villa computer or in the compendium.
This is the Fire Station and triangle where you can temporarily park to unpack your car.
