Day 4
Zadar - Sali

We start the day with breakfast followed by a walking tour of Zadar’s historical centre. 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. We stop for a tasting of traditional Maraschino liqueur. While we set sail for Sali, lunch is served onboard. Later in the day, we explore Sali. Dinner is on your own at one of the local restaurants. (B, L, T)

Day 5
Sali - Kornati - Krka - Šibenik

After breakfast, we take in the scenic wonderlands of two National Parks in the Šibenik area - 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. After our visit here, the evening is at leisure in Šibenik. (B, L)

Day 6

Day 7
Split - Bol - Hvar

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. Before lunch, there is time for a swim in the clear blue sea. Later, we cruise to the Island of Hvar where we enjoy a sightseeing tour that includes the first public theatre in Europe, the Franciscan Monastery, and many more historic sights. The evening is free to explore Hvar and to dine on your own in one of the excellent restaurants. (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 organized to and from Hvar.

Day 8
Hvar - Korčula - Mljet

After breakfast we depart for Korčula, where we arrive in the early afternoon. Korčula Town is thought to be the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. Our walking tour through its narrow, cobblestone streets includes a visit of the majestic Gothic-Baroque Cathedral of St Mark. We continue our cruise to the Island of Mljet, where we enjoy an afternoon tour of Mljet National Park, which features five types of forest, many species of birds, and two deep lakes: Veliko Jezero (Big Lake) and Malo Jezero (Small Lake). This spectacular island was supposedly a favourite holiday spot for the Greek hero Ulysses. Tonight, onboard our ship, we enjoy the Captain’s Dinner with live entertainment. (B, L, D)
