After breakfast we will take a guided city tour around Trogir, of one of Dalmatia’s true gem and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Nick-named as the ‘Stone Beauty’ city is a remarkable example of urban continuity.

After a tour you will have some free time to sit for coffee, buy souvenirs or just relax at the beautiful Trogir waterfront promenade (Riva) where some of the world’s most expensive yachts are moored. Next is short transfer to City of Split another UNESCO protected site. Today second largest city of Croatia is still there where in the 3rd century the Roman emperor Diocletian built a magnificent palace. Palace remained inhabited till these days making this city living monument and unique place in the world.

After sightseeing when sitting on a beautiful promenade sipping your coffee or having a lunch you will surely fall in love with this beautiful Mediterranean city.

Day 4
mljet island croatia

Day trip to National Park Mljet Island

After breakfast, we transfer to Mljet island with the private boat. Mljet is Croatia’s greenest island well known for its two salt lakes – Veliko Jezero and Malo Jezero (big lake and small lake).

Visit to the salt lakes in Mljet National Park to enjoy the sun, sea and tranquility of this peaceful island. In the middle of the large lake, inside the National park, we visit the monastery and church on St. Mary isle. Tour includes, entrance to national park Mljet, guided walk around the lakes, and boat transfer to St.

Mary isle where lunch is going to be served. Mljet is a little further away and less visited than the tourist hotspots of Brac and Hvar, so you’ll be able to stray away from the crowds and have this peaceful paradise to yourself. We suggest to take a swim, explore the island further on bikes (they can be easily rent in park) or just sit somewhere in shadow and chill.

Day 5

Peljesac - Ston - Dubrovnik

Breakfast and transfer to the ferry port to take the ferry to the Peljesac peninsula, the second largest peninsula in Croatia and a landmass crammed with history, culture, and plenty of wine and food.

We visit a local winery and taste the famous “Plavac Mali” wine, the primary red wine grape grown along the Dalmatian coast. In this winery the traditional winemaking business has been passed on for generations, offering a unique story everyone wants to hear.

The wine tasting includes a wine presentation on all the specifics of the wine-making process, wine tasting, and snacks.
The next Stop is the bay-side town of Ston, famous for its town walls, the saltworks, and oysters. We will take a one-hour boat cruise, discovering the traditional domestic sea shell farming with oyster and mussel tasting.

Later you can visit Saltworks, established as far back as the 13th century. The production of salt contributed to the wealth of the Republic of Dubrovnik. You can also walk up the magnificent old walls which overlook the town – the view from the top is fantastic! This is perhaps what this little town is best known for – and rightfully so.

The walls are much longer than those of its more famous neighbor, Dubrovnik, at 5km in length. This makes them the longest defensive structure in Europe; they are sometimes referred to as the ‘European Walls of China”. The choices are there.   Arrive in Dubrovnik in the late afternoon. Check-in. Short orientation tour, and evening at leisure. overnight.

Day 6
dubrovnik croatia

Day in Dubrovnik

Breakfast. First things first, today we are going to explore this amazing city with our local guide. Did you know that the oldest document on maritime law in the world as well as and the oldest European law on maritime insurance were created in the Republic of Dubrovnik?

Here you can also find the oldest European pharmacy that is constantly used for pharmaceutical purposes! Dubrovnik still exudes that old-world charm, with its location on the magnificent turquoise Adriatic, the fine stone palaces surrounded by heavily fortified walls, and the multitude of red-tiled roofs.

The bombing of Dubrovnik by Serb troops in the 90s shocked the world. Fortunately, over the last 20 years, great care has been taken to re-build the damaged parts of the city and Dubrovnik has now returned to its former beauty. The stone streets of the Old town, or Stari Grad, feature fountains, churches, palaces, and museums – all built from the same light-colored stone. Motor vehicles are not allowed in the city but at night the streets come alive when locals and tourists take an early evening stroll along the Stradun – or Placa how it’s called by Dubrovnik people, – 300 meters of pure history and as many say most beautiful street in Croatia with it’s shiny almost glass-like reflecting stone.

After the sightseeing tour, the afternoon is at leisure to explore the city on your own. City monumental walls are almost two kilometers long and definitely worth visiting if you want to admire the beautiful view of city rooftops, the old port, and nearby islands. For more spectacular views you can take the cable car up to Srdj Hill behind Dubrovnik for spectacular views of the city and the Dalmatian coastline.

Or to take a Game of Thrones tour. Dubrovnik was the main filming location in Croatia for King’s Landing, a fictional city in Game of Thrones, the famous television series distributed by HBO. Overnight in Dubrovnik.
