Day by day Itinerary

Day 1
Split

Check in from 1400HRS onwards. After settling in, enjoy the guided tour of the city (not possible for late arrivals). A dynamic port city with a medieval Old Town grown out of the 1,700-year-old Diocletian Palace, Split bustles with modern life amid its ancient Roman setting. Cafes, restaurants, and galleries cram the cobblestone alleyways, the waterfront and the Marjan Peninsula, make Croatia's second largest city one of the Mediterranean's most compelling. Return to the vessel, meet the crew and enjoy a Welcome Cocktail and dinner onboard, the meet and greet party. Overnight in Split. (D)

Day 2
Split - Hvar - Vis

After breakfast, we set sail for the first island on the route - Hvar, an island covered in vibrant and fragrant lavender fields and olive groves. The historic island town is home to 7th century fortifications, a Venetian loggia, historic piazzas and the oldest municipal theatre in Europe. Learn more about it on a guided tour. Back on the vessel for lunch onboard then cruise toward the Island of Vis, once one of the main Greek colonies in the 4th century BC. As a navy base for a long period, until 1991, Vis was closed and left untouched by the development of tourism for many years. As a result, its culture and architecture are extremely well preserved. Take a walk, enjoy the views and taste some local delicacies at many excellent restaurants and taverns along the promenade. Overnight in Vis. (B, L)

Day 3
Vis - Biševo - Primošten

In the morning visit the famous Blue Cave on Biševo Island, a splendorous and unique geomorphological natural wonder.

The possibility of a cave visit will depend on weather conditions. Breakfast followed by a swim stop on the way to Primošten. Enjoy the lunch onboard as the cruise continues towards Primošten, a small, picturesque town situated between Šibenik and Trogir, in the central part of the Adriatic coast and surrounded by seven other islets, a wonderful sight and a beautiful place to explore.

Afterwards, the cruise continues towards Zadar, for centuries the capital of Dalmatia and the oldest university town in Croatia. Join a guided tour of the city. Zadar is well known for its rich historical heritage of world importance, visible at every step, Roman Forum from the 1st century, St Donatus Church from the 9th century, the most famous medieval basilica and the symbol of the city, mighty city walls with a bow and a representative city gate from the 16th century, the Museum of Ancient Glass, over 30 churches in the Old Town, many palaces and villas, as well as the famous, contemporary ‘Sea Organ’ and ‘Greetings to the Sun’ light installation.
