On this journey, we will explore the most important and magniﬁcent historic cities and islands of Croatia, found along its fabled Dalmatian coast. We will start our exploration in vibrant Split, where the formidable seafront palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian dominates the modern city as it did in antiquity. The palace is one of the most important Roman monuments in the world. From Split, we will also visit other signiﬁcant places, including the archaeological site of Salona, the capital of this region in the Roman period; the perfectly-preserved medieval town of Trogir; and the idyllic island of Hvar.
From Split, we will sail to Korcula, which, along with Hvar, comprise Dalmatia’s most beautiful and architecturally important islands. In Korcula, walls enclose its main town whose narrow lanes and alleyways are lined with Venetian-inspired palaces, churches and houses that date from the 13th – 16th centuries. Dubrovnik, which we will reach after a short sail from Korcula, is undoubtedly one of Europe’s best preserved medieval cities and one of the most beautiful. A powerful and prosperous maritime republic called Ragusa, Dubrovnik’s wealth during the medieval period is reﬂected in the elegance and beauty of its places and other buildings.
In addition to exploring the historic towns and sites in an unhurried manner, this journey also provides time to travelers for independent activities.
We invite you to join Historic Cities and Islands of Croatia and discover one of Europe’s most interesting and attractive regions.
