Through the carved facades of buildings and Baroque churches, we see many green spaces and terraces of cafes where the locals like to gather. Early afternoon departure to Bled, a small town in the Julian Alps which could be a setting for a classic fairy tale. Immense natural beauty with mountains and forest surrounding an emerald glacial lake, an island in the middle of the lake with a church steeple and its wishing bell, a cliff top castle with picturesque views and a well-known sweet treat. Bled, together with its surroundings, ranks amongst the most beautiful alpine resorts and is renowned for its mild, healing climate and thermal lake water.

Departure to Split. This afternoon our guide will uncover for you the secrets of the UNESCO protected Diocletian Palace and its cellars. This Roman Emperor spared no expense for the construction of a sumptuous residence, importing best quality marble, sphinx and columns. The original palace was modified by its new inhabitants during the Middle Ages, making it even more beautiful and what it is today, the city's living heart. Its narrow streets hide passageways and courtyards, some deserted and eerie, others lively and animated by the music from bars and cafes, or by the everyday life of its residents. Embarkation on Adriatic Paradise Cruise. Dinner onboard and overnight in Split Port. (B, D)

Late in the morning we will set sail towards Hvar, known as the sunniest island in Croatia, famous for its endless fields of lavender and rosemary, its beautiful coast and lovely historical towns. Your destination is the town of Hvar, a town of immense beauty that buzzes with vibrant energy in the summer sun. Upon arrival, expert local guide will take you for a walk around the ancient streets of Hvar. After the guided walking tour we cruise to Korčula Island.

Monday morning after leaving the stunning beauty of Vela Luka, your Captain will hand-pick a bay for you where he will drop the anchor. You can hop into your swimsuit and have a swim in the crystal-blue Adriatic, surrounded by pine trees and the sounds of crickets. After the swim break we continue cruising to Pomena on the Island of Mljet, which on its western side houses the National Park, known for its immense beauty and its two turquoise saltwater lakes surrounded by thick forest. Upon arrival you will have plenty of free time to explore the park individually, for example, by renting bikes and cycling or jogging on the numerous paths around the lakes or in the forest. If you feel like just relaxing you can hop onto the small boat that will take you to a tiny island on one of the lakes, where you can discover a monastery and a church of St Mary, built in the 12th century and enjoy a cup of coffee with the view and the quiet. In the late afternoon we depart towards Slano. Overnight in Slano. (B, L)

Day 7
Slano - Lopud - Dubrovnik

Later, we set sail to the Lopud Island for a short swim break and continue to Dubrovnik, cruising beneath the City Walls. In the late afternoon, you will be transferred to the Old Town gate where you will be joining a guided tour of Dubrovnik. Our local expert will show you around this fascinating world-known landmark, an ancient town protected by 13th century fortifications.

Day 8
Dubrovnik - Risan - Kotor - Dubrovnik

Located less than an hour drive from Dubrovnik, Montenegro offers an unforgettable experience, exceptional natural beauty in combination with rich history and culture. Beautiful beaches, clear waters and gorgeous mountains that plunge into the sea will greet you upon your arrival to the Bay of Kotor. Encircled by the mountains, the innermost towns of Risan and Kotor are the earliest inhabited areas with evidence of civilization dating from Illyrian, Roman and early Christian periods. This is a land where the mountains descend almost directly into the sea creating a surreal atmosphere. Overnight in Dubrovnik. (B, D)

Day 10
Korčula - Pučišća - Split

Breakfast is served over the stunning views of the playfully dispersed archipelago of Korčula and followed by a scenic cruise around the tips of Pelješac Peninsula and Hvar Island, perhaps even a refreshing dip along the way. Stop to visit the home of the Croatian marble, the Island of Brač. You’ve probably seen this ultra-quality limestone already, perhaps on the front of the White House in Washington DC or Bundestag in Berlin, but a tour to the still operating stonemasonry school in Pučišća brings a chance to learn more about shaping this stone for eternity.
