Day by day Itinerary

Day 1
Dubrovnik

You will be transferred from Dubrovnik Airport or your Dubrovnik hotel to Gruž Port, where embarkation begins from 1200HRS.

Day 2
Dubrovnik - Mljet - Korčula

We start the day with breakfast and a walking tour of Dubrovnik, “The Pearl of the Adriatic” and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We visit the Franciscan Monastery’s Pharmacy before returning to the ship. While we set sail for Mljet Island, lunch is served. Mljet National Park features five types of forests, many species of birds, and two deep lakes - Veliko Jezero (Big Lake) and Malo Jezero (Small Lake). Spectacular scenery accompanies us all the way to Korčula, believed to be the birthplace of the explorer Marco Polo. Your evening is free to discover the town and enjoy dinner on your own at one of the many good restaurants. (B, L)

Day 3
Korčula - Hvar

This morning after breakfast, we take a walking tour through the narrow, cobblestone streets of Korčula Town. Our visit includes a visit to the majestic Gothic-Baroque Cathedral of St Mark. Afterwards, we board our ship again and enjoy lunch. We stop for a swim enroute to Hvar where we arrive in the late afternoon. There, during our sightseeing tour, we see the first public theatre in Europe, the Franciscan Monastery and much more. Our evening is free in Hvar so you can explore even more and dine on your own at one of the many restaurants in town. (B, L)

Note: Due to the limited capacity of the Hvar harbour (during peak season in July and August) the port of call can be substituted for Stari Grad/Jelsa. In that case, transfers by bus will be organised to and from Hvar.

Day 4
Hvar - Bol - Split

We cruise to Bol, home of the Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn), one of the most breathtaking beaches in Croatia. This vast, golden pebble beach is unique in that it changes shape and position depending on the direction of the winds. During lunch onboard, we cruise to Split. Here, a walking tour shows off the historic inner city, built around the Palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We see the remnants of Split’s Roman heritage, its Renaissance and Gothic structures, Jupiter’s Temple, the Peristyle, and the Cathedral. The evening is free to discover more of Split. (B, L)

Day 5
Split - Trogir - Šibenik

In the morning, we cruise to the UNESCO listed town of Trogir. Your time here is free to explore on your own. Back onboard, enjoy lunch as we cruise to Šibenik, with a stop for a swim on the way. In Šibenik, a walking tour shows us the highlights of the city, then our evening is at leisure. (B, L)

Day 6
Šibenik - Krka - Kornati - Sali

The Šibenik area is home to two National Parks - Krka with its breathtaking waterfalls, and Kornati, comprised of more than 140 islands with numerous coves and crystal-clear sea. The day is devoted to tour these scenic destinations before we cruise to Sali. Tonight, aboard our ship, enjoy the Captain’s Dinner with live entertainment. (B, L, D)

Day 7
Sali - Zadar

As we cruise this morning, we will stop for a swim if weather permits. After lunch, we arrive in Zadar. The city’s compact pedestrian zone is perfect to explore on foot. We admire the 16th century walls built by the Venetians as a defence against the Turks. We also see the Port Gate where the Venetian lion still guards the entrance, Square of the Five Wells, Church of St Donatus, Roman Forum, and the largest cathedral in Dalmatia, St Anastasia. After the tour, we stop for a tasting of traditional Maraschino liqueur. The evening is free in Zadar. (B, L, T)

Day 8
Zadar - Plitvice Lakes - Opatija

After breakfast, we disembark and bid farewell to our crew. We journey north by motor coach for a visit to Plitvice Lakes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, we enjoy the breathtaking beauty while we walk around several of the lower lakes. The Park is a natural wonder with 16 terraced lakes surrounded by wooded mountains and lush vegetation. Afterward, we motor on to Opatija where dinner is served at our hotel. (B, D)

Day 9
Opatija - Pula - Rovinj - Opatija

After breakfast, we drive to Pula for an orientation tour of this strategic port city. We visit the preserved Amphitheatre, the sixth largest in the world. Then we continue on to the beautiful resort of Rovinj. There’s free time to explore the Old Town and its narrow streets before we return to Opatija. (B)

Day 10
Opatija - Postojna - Venice

After breakfast, we travel to Slovenia and visit the unique and beautiful Postojna Cave, one of the largest in Europe. We tour this wondrous subterranean world by miniature electric train. Later, we continue to Italy where Venice beckons with its idyllic setting on 119 islands. (B)

Day 11
Venice

We begin our exploration of Venice with a boat ride to Murano Island, famous for its artistic glassware. In a working glass factory, we see master craftsmen demonstrate the art of traditional Venetian glassblowing. We then depart for St Mark’s Square, for a walking tour with visits of St Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace. We take in views of the Bell Tower and the Bridge of Sighs. The balance of the day is at leisure to enjoy Venice at your own pace, shop, or perhaps join an optional gondola ride. In the evening, we gather for a farewell dinner at a local restaurant. (B, D)
