Let the guided tour of Dubrovnik Old Town weave the story of its history and its present into the splendid fabric of fine architecture and magnificent city walls. Starting from Pile Square on the eastern side of Dubrovnik Old Town, embark on a walking tour through the maze of narrow streets, lively piazzas, and stunning palaces like Sponza and churches like St Blaise. Enjoy the moderate tempo of your walk as you stroll down the main thoroughfare of Stradun, all the way to the Cathedral and the Rector’s Palace, where you will discover a fine synergy between governance and faith which kept Dubrovnik afloat as the independent Republic of Ragusa for 450 years. Dinner and overnight in Dubrovnik or Dubrovnik area. (B, D)

Day 3
Dubrovnik - Kotor - Budva - Dubrovnik

From Dubrovnik, visit off the beaten path Montenegro, a diminutive southeast European country that boasts big things, Bay of Kotor, the walled seaside town of Budva, and the eye-pleasing town of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, situated within Europe’s southernmost fjord.

Morning departure to Mostar, city of bridges, where the traveller from the South gets the first glimpse of the continent beyond. Orientational walk with your Tour Director in Mostar and free time for lunch. Departure to Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia & Herzegovina. Sarajevo is one of the historically most interesting cities in Europe. It is the place where the Western and Eastern Roman Empire split and where the people of the Orthodox East, Ottoman South and the Roman Catholic West met, both an example of the clash of civilisations and of historical turbulence, but also a beacon of hope for peace and tolerance, reached through multi-cultural integration. City tour of Sarajevo upon arrival. Dinner and overnight in Sarajevo or Sarajevo area. (B, D)

Day 5
Sarajevo - Zvornik - Belgrade

Streets, squares, monuments, parks, fountains and archaeological sites. Many of them have been given the status of cultural treasures. Upon arrival, a guided tour of this beautiful city between two rivers, famous for its sunsets. Dinner and overnight in Belgrade. (B, D)

Day 6
Belgrade - Novi Sad - Ilok - Vukovar - Osijek or Vukovar

Morning departure to Novi Sad, Serbia's second largest city, located on Danube River. Novi Sad's position at one of the continent's true crossroads and history as a multinational commercial and transit centre has left it endowed with historical and cultural sights that even much larger cities have difficulty matching. Novi Sad has much to boast about, from the imposing fortress on the opposite bank to the churches, representing numerous denominations throughout the Old Town's exceedingly pleasant pedestrian zone, to several unheralded, but noteworthy museums and art galleries. Our local guide will show us all must see locations. After the guided tour of Novi Sad, we will continue towards Ilok. You will have the opportunity to taste wines in one of the most famous Croatian wine cellars “Iločki Podrumi”, followed by traditional lunch. On our way to Osijek we will stop in Vukovar, which is the biggest Croatian river port, located at the confluence of Vuka River in Danube. Vukovar is also known as a symbol of the Croatian War for Independence, as it arose from the ashes of the 90s into the proud city that it is today. Overnight in Osijek or Vukovar. (B, T, L)

Day 7
Osijek or Vukovar - Osijek - Đakovo - Zagreb

You will start your morning with a city tour of Osijek. Slavonia has unique natural wonders and delicious regional cuisine that will take your breath away, endless plains, the intense yellow of its corn and sunflower fields, the flavours of its cuisine that will make all your senses travel. Osijek is the largest city in eastern Croatia, beautifully settled on the banks of Drava River. Osijek remains a popular tourist destination for its Baroque style, open spaces and lots of recreational opportunities. Located in one of the most fertile and most certainly the biggest agricultural area of Croatia, the town is its semi-official gastronomic capital. City tour passes by the cathedral and the old fort of Tvrđa. As we continue our drive, the first thing you see when approaching Đakovo from either side is the brightness of the bricks of the two towers and cupolas of its cathedral, beauty of which welcomes the visitors. After the visit, departure towards Zagreb, followed by a visit to the Ethno Village of Stara Kapela for lunch of the products of the Slavonian soil (no drinks included).
