TOUR & CRUISE ITINERARY

Day 1, Thursday: Zagreb

You will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel. The balance of the day is at leisure. (D)

Day 2, Friday: Zagreb

A morning sightseeing tour will take you through the historic Upper Town. See St. Mark’s Church, St. Catherine’s Church, the Cathedral, Parliament, and the Government Palace. The rest of the day is yours to explore the winding streets of the old town at your own pace or perhaps take an optional excursion into the countryside. (B)

Day 3, Saturday: Zagreb – Plitvice Lakes NP – Zadar

Head south for a visit to magnificent Plitvice Lakes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery of this natural wonder with its 16 terraced lakes surrounded by forested mountains and lush vegetation. A walking tour takes you around several of the lower lakes. On to Zadar and the port to embark on your boat. Later, gather with your fellow “sailors” for a Welcome Reception on board followed by dinner. (B, WR, D)

Day 4, Sunday: Zadar – Sali

Zadar historical center is a pedestrian zone, perfect to explore on foot. Set out on a walking tour and admire the 16th-century walls built in by Venetians as a defence from The Turks. On to see the 16th century Port Gate where the Venetian lion still stands guard over the entrance, the Square of the Five Wells, Church of St. Donat, the Roman Forum (1st century BC) and the largest cathedral in Dalmatia, St. Anastasia. Returning to the boat, enjoy lunch as you cruise to Sali. Explore the town tonight, and have dinner on your own in one of the restaurants. (B, L)

Day 5, Monday: Sali – Kornati NP – Krka NP – Šibenik

Take in the scenic natural beauty of two National Parks today. Start in Kornati, home to more than 140 islands with numerous coves and crystal clear waters. Stop for a swim during your lunchtime cruise. Next is Krka, with its breathtaking waterfalls. After your visit here, coach to Šibenik where your boat is anchored. Your evening is at leisure in town. (B, L)

Day 6, Tuesday: Šibenik – Trogir – Split

Take a break for a swim during your morning cruise. Lunch and then arrive in the UNESCO-listed city of Trogir this afternoon. There’s time on your own before heading to Split. Here, a walking tour of the historic inner city shows off the Roman Emperor Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. See the remnants of Split’s Roman heritage, its Renaissance and Gothic structures, Jupiter’s Temple, the Peristyle, and the Cathedral. (B, L)

Day 7, Wednesday: Split – Bol – Hvar

Stop in Bol, home to one of the best beaches in Croatia, the Golden Horn. This long, golden pebble beach is unique in that it changes shape and position depending on the winds. Go for a swim in the clear blue waters before cruising to Hvar. Here, a sightseeing tour includes views of the first public theatre in Europe (older than Shakespeare’s theatre in the UK), the Franciscan Monastery, and many more historic sights. The evening is free to explore Hvar and to dine on your own at one of the excellent restaurants. (B, L)
Note: Due to the limited capacity of the Hvar harbour (during peak season in July and August) port of call can be substituted for Stari Grad/Jelsa. In that case transfer by bus will be organized to and from Hvar.

Day 8, Thursday: Hvar – Korčula – Mljet

After breakfast cruise to Korčula, with an early afternoon arrival. Korčula is thought to be the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. Take a walking tour through its narrow, cobbled streets and visit the majestic Gothic-Baroque Cathedral of St. Mark. Continue cruising to the island of Mljet, where you will enjoy the afternoon tour of Mljet National Park, as you walk around the Great and Small Lakes. This lovely island was supposedly a favourite holiday spot for the Greek hero Ulysses! Tonight, enjoy captain’s dinner on board your ship. (B, L, D)

Day 9, Friday: Mljet – Dubrovnik

In the morning cruise to Dubrovnik, so called “Pearl of Adriatic,” a UNESCO World Heritage site. While in Dubrovnik, take a walking tour of the old town and visit the Rector’s Palace and Franciscan Monastery with its Pharmacy.
