Day-By-Day Program:

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     Zagreb – Plitvice Lakes – Split, Saturday

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 Split and the port to embark on your boat. Later gather with your fellow “sailors” for a Welcome reception on board (B, WR)

Day 4     Split – Bol – Stari Grad, Sunday
Morning guided walking tour of Split shows us the historic inner city, built around the Roman Emperor Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. See the remnants of Split’s Roman heritage, it’s Renaissance and Gothic structures, Jupiter’s Temple, the Peristyle, and the Cathedral. Set sail towards Bol, a small town on the island of Brač, for a swim at the Golden Horn. Enjoy the 1740-foot-long golden pebble beach, said to be the best in Croatia. It is unique in that it changes shape and position depending on the winds. Afterwards head to Hvar, Croatia's most luxurious island and the sunniest place in the country. It is also a meeting point for the international jetset. The “Croatian Madeira” is also one of the longest islands stretching along the shores of Croatia. Spend evening and night at Stari Grad, one of the oldest towns in Europe, a popular alternative thanks to its quieter, more discerning charms (B, L)

Day 5     Stari Grad – Hvar – Vis, Monday
Quick sail towards town of Hvar for a sightseeing tour featuring the first public theatre in Europe (older than Shakespeare’s theatre in the UK), the Franciscan Monastery and many more historical sights. Cruise towards Island of Vis. The town Vis, the antique Issa, was founded around 397 B.C. Our tour of Vis features the town’s waterfront. Evening at leisure (B, L)

Day 6     Vis – Vela Luka, Tuesday
After breakfast set sail for Korcula Island, thought to be the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. Our port of call for today is the town of Vela Luka, dating back to pre-historic times. Vela Luka is located on the western side of the Korcula island, at the bottom of a wide bay with many indented coves. After lunch onboard, disembark in Vela Luka and depart for an afternoon Korcula island tour, featuring the visit to the olive oil factory, Barilo ethno museum and local winery to taste some local wine and cheese. Return to your ship, for evening at leisure (B, L)

Day 7     Vela Luka – Korcula, Wednesday
There will be some time for swimming before we continue our cruise, heading for Korcula town.
