    Day 2 Dubrovnik and Slano/Ston

    Ston, Croatia

    Today we will sail to the charming village of Slano, situated on the mainland. You can relax and enjoy the stunning scenery, as we cruise around Dubrovnik’s city walls before heading in the direction of the Elaphiti islands for a swim stop. Afternoon arrival in charming Slano, this traditional fisherman’s village was once fortified and is famous for its oysters. From Slano we head towards Ston, a sought-after seaside town which is known for its oyster production. You will take a small boat out into the middle of the estuary and enjoy sampling fresh oysters directly from the sea with a dash of lime and some locally produced wine. This very unique experience is one of our client’s favorites! Return to Slano after the oyster tasting for dinner on board the boat.

    Day 3 Mljet and Korcula

    Korcula, Croatia

    We’ll venture further north to Mljet Island and its stunning national park this morning. Walk the shores of the two salt lakes at its center and then visit tiny St. Mary Isle which sits in Great Lake and houses a 12th-century Benedictine monastery and historic church. After lunch, we journey to Korcula Island, perhaps best known as the birthplace of one of the world’s most famous explorers, Marco Polo. Your inspirational guide will take you on a tour through fortified Korcula Town. You’ll have the evening to explore on your own, sampling tasty cuisine in the local eateries.

    Day 4 Vis

    An early morning departure for the tranquil island of Vis. Enjoy a refreshing dip in the Adriatic before we arrive to this unspoiled island in the afternoon. For four decades it was closed off to visitors and abandoned by many locals while used as a Yugoslav military based. It’s managed to remain largely undeveloped, offering a step back in time with traditional architecture and pristine beaches. Look forward to exploring Vis Town at your leisure, enjoying the atmospheric vibe as you walk the lovely stone streets lined with fabulous taverns.

We’ll continue cruising to the UNESCO-listed Trogir, an open-air museum filled with impressive medieval towers, churches, palaces and monasteries. Its Cathedral of St. Lawrence is considered one of the country’s finest examples of sacral architecture. Learn more about it on a guided walking tour, followed by time on your own.

Join our guide for a tour of its historical center, nearly half of which is made up of the 1,700-year-old Diocletian’s Palace, a maze-like complex with a wealth of magnificent Roman architecture.
