DAY 1 – ARRIVAL into DUBROVNIK

Land into Dubrovnik int’l airport (DBV). Our team will collect you and transfer you to one of our locally flavored 4* partner hotels. The first evening is free to help you get over the jetlag and intake some of this magnificent limestone city at your own pace.

The next morning, ,meet your local guide for a 3-hour walking tour of the imposing 12th century city. You will learn a lot about its history and geopolitical significance and see not only what you can see in the pictures, but also hidden gems of baroque architecture.
Also, fans of The Game of Thrones will have a reason to relish – Dubrovnik is the set of “King’s Landing”, and you will easily recognize most of the famous scenes from the show.
After the tour, there will be plenty of time to walk the famed city walls, climb Srdj mountain for the best views of the city, or just relax on Banje beach.
We can also organize: sea-kayaking, boat excursion to Elaphiti islands, jet-ski, philharmonic orchestra concert (depending on date and availability), four-course dinner at the best local restaurants.


DAY 2 – DUBROVNIK – SPLIT

Drive up the coast to Split, second largest city in Croatia and a major tourist hub. After freshening up at the hotel, enjoy a two-hour guided tour of the Old City. An important port from the ancient times, Split boasts one of the best-preserved Roman palaces in the world, erected by emperor Diocletian in 4th century AD.
You can spend the rest of the day on the famous Bacvice beach, or do some shopping and have a well-deserved cocktail afterwards.

We didn’t even imagine it would turn out this great: good hotels, amazing food, excellent wine. What can we say, we’ve definitely fallen in love with Croatia.Hillary and Ethen, USA

DAY 3 – SPLIT – ŠIBENIK – ZADAR – PLITVICE

Having checked out, we will head northwest along the Dalmatian coast. You will pass the lovely towns of Primosten and Marina, and make your first stop at Sibenik, where you will be given a quick tour of the UNESCO protected St. James´s Cathedral and the city center. Our main stop of the day will be Zadar, a city boasting with Roman ruins, imposing medieval churches, and unique modern wonders: the Sea organ, that plays music as the tides shift, and the Sun Salutation, a round solar panel that creates a wonderful atmosphere at night with its bright colours. After the two-hour guided tour, you will have time to explore the city on your own and have a bite to eat before hitting the road again and driving inland toward Croatia’s most amazing natural site: Plitvice Lakes National Park. We will check in at the hotel nearby the Lakes and get a good night’s rest.
We can also organize: a pre-ordered three-course lunch at one of Zadar’s top restaurants.


DAY 4 – PLITVICE – OPATIJA

The entrance is situated right at the hotel! We suggest you go for the tour option C, which starts at the hotel and takes you on a circular journey of 4 to 6 hours.
Heading back towards the sea in the afternoon, we will stop at a typical inland restaurant for traditional local delicacies, like trout in almond sauce or veal under the peka.

DAY 5 – ISTRIA out of OPATIJA

Opatija, a charming town that used to serve as a summer residence for the Habsburgs, is filled with baroque villas and meticulously kept parks, retaining most of its traditional charm. It also serves as an excellent starting point to explore the Istrian peninsula, a region typically compared to Tuscany and Provance.
There we will embark on a rare activity: truffle-hunting! Led by a team of trained dogs, we will explore a chestnut forest and later also get to taste various dishes and products based on this precious mushroom.
From there, we will proceed to Rovinj, a peninsula-city built under Venetian rule and resembling its famed cousin in many ways.
Return to Opatija for overnight.
We can also organize: wine-tasting of the authentic Istrian varietals at one of the top wineries.


DAY 6 – OPATIJA – LJUBLJANA

After a late check-out, which you can use for a walk down Opatija’s beautiful lungo mare coastal promenade, we will continue into the Slovenian capital – Ljubljana.
Having checked in at one of the centrally located hotels, you will join a local guide for a 2 hour walking tour of the city. This will give you a good idea why Ljubljana is considered one of the “must visit” cities in Europe.
The rest of the day is free for you to enjoy at your own pace – the Slovenian capital is filled with museums, bars, restaurants, churches, and shopping alleys. A boat ride on river Ljubljanica is also a great option.
We can also organize: a five-course gourmet “Tastes of Slovenia” dinner at the castle overlooking the city; a food tour of the city focusing on the most important Slovenian dishes

DAY 7 – LJUBLJANA – ZAGREB

After breakfast, we will be leaving Ljubljana and heading to Zagreb. With almost one million citizens, the Croatian capital is the political and business center of the country, but also one of the richest cities in the region in terms of culture and a fast growing tourist destination. During a walking tour of Ilica and Gornji grad you will see most of the historical buildings.
Later, you may want to check for yourself why foodies are raving about Zagreb as a gourmet destination as well.
We can also organize: museums visits (Museum of Broken Relationships, Museum of illusions, Museum of Torture), Room Escape, funicular ride to old Upper Town, cooking class with a renowned local chef, four-course dinner at the best local restaurants.


DAY 8 – DEPARTURE out of ZAGREB

After breakfast, we will transfer you to the airport for your flight home.

A great time was always had, and new places discovered that I would not have otherwise come across.Karim Nassar
