Take a scenic drive along the stunning coast to Zadar, where you’ll enjoy the magical sounds and lights of the Sea Organ and the Greeting to the Sun installations. You’ll visit the dramatic setting of Dubrovnik, an ancient maritime republic poised above the Adriatic Sea. Explore the impressive ramparts of the walled city, see its Franciscan and Dominican monasteries, and visit the 15th-century Rector’s Palace. You’ll travel through the ruggedly beautiful Neretva Valley to 16th-century Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina on your way to Split, Croatia—ancient Spalato—to tour the Emperor Diocletian’s Palace, the Mausoleum, the Cathedral of St. Domnius, and the incredible Temple of Jupiter. Another highlight is a special dinner at a local restaurant in Split.
Your guided holiday in Croatia and the Balkans concludes in the capital city of Zagreb. With a guided tour of this extraordinary city, and a farewell dinner to celebrate your Croatian Escape, you’ll enjoy it all without the crowds and the high prices of high-season travel!
