Sightseeing

Day 1 - Arrive Zagreb
Embark on an off-the-beaten track discovery of Croatia. The capital city of Zagreb is your springboard to an enchanting journey through what was once a troubled region and is today a land of diverse cultures and traditions. Meet your Travel Director and fellow travellers this evening for a Welcome Reception and evening orientation drive.


Day 2 - Zagreb Sightseeing - Bled
Spend the morning exploring Zagreb with a Local Specialist before travelling through romantic landscapes to the lakeside resort town of Bled, where we'll stay the next two nights.


Day 3 - Bled Sightseeing
Enjoy some free time today to connect with this enchanting setting, but not before you sail on Lake Bled's crystal-clear waters to Bled Island to view its Church of the Assumption. Spend the rest of the day exploring on your terms, or consider joining an Optional Experience to Slovenia's largest glacier lake, ascending Mt. Vogel by cable car for inspiring views. 


Day 4 - Bled - Ljubljana - Opatija
We leave the beauty of Bled behind for one of Europe's smallest capitals. Embark on an orientation tour of Ljubljana this morning, admiring its Old Town, bridges and Castle. We continue to the seaside resort of Opatija.


Day 5 - Rovinj Excursion and Opatija Free Time
The Croatian fishing port of Rovinj is our destination this morning. 'Dive Into Culture' as we stop to taste the world-famous and delicious Istrian white truffles. We'll join a Local Specialist to wander through the old town and witness its Mediterranean influences. We return to Opatija for some time on our own. See the statuesque nymph, her hand outstretched to cradle a seagull as a symbol of this region, and admire the belle-époque architecture. Savour the beautiful seaside setting and local Mediterranean flavours as you 'Connect With Locals' at a traditional Be My Guest dinner with a family in Opatija.


Day 6 - Opatija - Plitvice
The extraordinary natural beauty of Plitvice takes centre stage today as we embark on a guided walking tour. Admire the cascade of spectacular waterfalls and crystal-clear waters reflecting green, grey and blue against the lush landscapes. Enjoy dinner at your hotel against this picture-perfect backdrop.


Day 7 - Plitvice - Trogir - Split
Today, we visit the walled island of Trogir. The stone town is connected to the mainland and the island of Čiovo by bridges and will delight lovers of art, and Renaissance, Baroque Romanesque architecture. We leave the coast and journey to Split, where we'll join a Local Specialist for a sightseeing tour, which includes entry into Diocletian's Palace, built for the emperor's retirement.


Day 8 - Split Free Day
Delve into centuries of heritage on this free day in Split. Consider a full-day Optional Experience to the beautiful island of Hvar. Ascend the bell tower for magnificent views of the sprawling terracotta roofs and white marble façades that edge onto the Adriatic. Or savour the city's delicious gastronomy at cafés tucked away in hidden lanes.


Day 9 - Split - Ston - Dubrovnik
The terracotta rooftops of Dubrovnik beckon, but not before we stop to admire the extraordinary walled city of Ston, with its dramatic views and laidback fishing village atmosphere. Visit Europe's oldest salt pans and hear how salt has been harvested here since ancient times. We continue to Dubrovnik where you can wander through the colourful lanes or maybe climb the medieval city walls.


Day 10 - Dubrovnik Sightseeing
Tread in the footsteps of Lord Byron and George Bernard Shaw, who were intoxicated by the allure of Dubrovnik. With your Local Specialist, you'll embark on a sightseeing tour past the Rector's Palace, Onofrio's Fountain and the Franciscan and Dominican monasteries, before spending time on your own. As our journey comes to an end, join your travel companions for a Farewell Dinner.


Day 11 - Depart Dubrovnik
Our time together comes to an end this morning after breakfast. Transfers are available to Dubrovnik Airport. Conditions apply.
