Dubrovnik - Set on a rocky peninsula jutting into the Adriatic Sea, Dubrovnik is one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval cities and a designated UNESCO World Heritage site. Its ancient walls enclose narrow cobblestoned streets and alleyways, palaces, and mansions. The city contains within its ramparts the Rector’s Palace; the Franciscan Monastery, which houses a 13th-century pharmacy (the oldest in Europe); and the baroque Cathedral, with works by Renaissance painters Titian and Andrea del Sarto. Overnight aboard ship docked in Dubrovnik.
Kotor - Sail the deep, fjord-like Bay of Kotor to reach the port town of the same name, located at the head of the bay beneath towering mountains. One of the most striking and best-preserved towns along the Adriatic coast, Kotor is a designated UNESCO World Heritage site. A tour of this delightful and compact car-free town reveals its magnificent walls, palaces, and churches, including the Drago Palace, with its elegant Renaissance windows, the 12th-century St. Tryphon Cathedral, and the baroque Lipovac Palace.
Island Korcula – Cruise to Korcula Island and dock at the town of the same name. Steps away from our ship stands the medieval city with its walls and guard towers still intact. Note the medieval town’s unique layout: western streets run straight to funnel refreshing maestral breezes; eastern streets slightly curve to minimize bura winds. Visit St. Mark’s Cathedral and its Treasury, the Bishop’s Palace, the Church of All Saints, the Icon Museum and Marco Polo’s home. Continue by bus and drive to the eastern end of the island,abundant in quaint old villages, vineyards, wineries, and out-of-the-way beaches. In the village of Blato, visit the Ethnographical Museum and enjoy wine sampling at a local tavern.
Ploce (Mostar) – Sail to Ploce for an excursion to Mostar, which in the 15th century under the Ottoman Turks became a thriving center on the banks of the emerald Neretva River. Damaged by the military conflict in the 1990s, the town has been carefully restored by UNESCO and declared a World Heritage site. Admire the ethereally graceful Stari Most (“The Old Bridge”), originally built in 1566, the nearby Tabacica Mosque, and an old Turkish house, among other sites. After lunch at a local restaurant there will be free time to explore the old bazaar, a haven for the city’s artists and craftsmen.
Island Hvar - Hvar is a fertile island of pale stone houses surrounded by rosemary, lavender, and laurel. The architecture is unmistakably Venetian, and there are fine fortifications. Our tour of the island’s principal town includes a visit to the 17th-century Municipal Theater, the Franciscan Monastery and its small gallery, the city’s Loggia, and St. Stephen’s Square. Continue by bus to the 16th-century fortress, at the top of the hill, for spectacular views of Hvar Town’s rooftops and harbor.
Island Vis – Closed to outsiders until 1989 for military reasons, Vis is one of Croatia’s most beautiful and unspoiled islands. Visit the town of Komiza, which has retained its medieval character and architecture. Stately homes and other buildings face the harbor, while the terraced hillside provides a lovely background to this idyllic setting. Exploring Komiza on foot is a most enjoyable experience.
Split - Originally a Greco-Illyrian settlement, Split is an ancient city centered around the formidable Palace of Diocletian, built in A.D. 295-305. Today it is a designated UNESCO World Heritage site. An extensive structure, much of which is well preserved, the palace contains within its walls Split’s medieval town, making it the only palace that has been continuously inhabited since Roman times. Your tour of this extensive structure includes a visit to its underground cellars, the Mausoleum, Jupiter’s Temple, the Peristyle, and the Northern Gate. Conclude the city tour with a visit to the gallery of famous Croatian sculptor, Ivan Mestrovic.
Kornati Archipelago – Consisting of about 100 islands and islets, the Kornati Archipelago is a national park formed in 1980 to protect island’s unique environment. Uninhabited other than by a few fisherman’s who return every summer, the Kornati Archipelago has become a favored ground of international yachtsmen.
Island Rab - Perched on a sloping peninsula overlooking a spacious bay, Rab, the only town on the small island of the same name, is one of the most beautiful towns along Croatia’s coast. Four graceful belfries pointing to the sky dominate the unspoiled medieval town, with its narrow streets that are lined with stately mansions and other buildings. The Cathedral of Sveta Marija (St. Mary the Great) consecrated in 1177, is an excellent example of a Romanesque basilica, while the magnificent Bell Tower is a masterpiece of 12th-century architecture. Our walking tour of this lovely town will include all its landmark sites.
Venice - Build on an archipelago of small islands in a lagoon, Venice rose to power and flourished, shaping and dominating for many years the affairs of the Adriatic Sea and the Eastern Mediterranean.
