Day 2 - Split - Trogir

Today’s history-filled agenda begins with a walking tour of Split – where a local guide will take us into the white walls of Diocletian’s Palace, a vast fortress filled with centuries of history. We’ll also pay a visit to the Grgur Ninski Statue and the Cathedral of St Domnius, before moving on to medieval Trogir. Here, we’ll be taken around the maze of marble streets and Romanesque buildings by a local guide – before going our separate ways to explore this tiny island town and indulge in some delicious local cuisine.

Day 3 - Trogir - Krka National Park - Trogir

This morning will see us seeking the crystalline lakes and energetic waterfalls of Krka National Park. We’ll be shown around this mesmerising park by a local guide, before moving on to a family-owned local winery. At this quaint establishment we’ll learn the history of winemaking in the region – while being treated to a tasting of selected wines. After that, we’ll round off the day with some free time to relax back in Trogir.

  • Accommodation: Hotel Tragos (or similar)
  • Meals: Breakfast

Day 4 - Trogir - Korcula

Today we'll say goodbye to Trogir and move on to Split, where we'll catch the ferry to Korcula – an island that's reputed to be the birthplace of Marco Polo. After checking into the hotel, our Tour Leader will take us on a stroll through the Old Town – before we enjoy some free time to delve deeper into the hidden treasures of this medieval island. Then: time to hone those culinary skills! We’ll uncover the distinct and unique flavours of Croatian cuisine with an included cookery class – and indulge in our creations for dinner this evening. 

  • Accommodation: Hotel Korcula De La Ville (or similar)
  • Meals: Breakfast and dinner

Day 5 - Korcula

Day 7 - Kotor

First today: a guided walking tour of Kotor. Old Kotor was built like a maze for protective purposes – and it’s very easy to get lost here without some local expertise! Following that, we’ll take to the water. A boat will carry us to Our Lady of the Rocks – a small church on a manmade island. After hearing the fascinating legend behind the church, we’ll return to Kotor – where you’ll be free to spend the rest of the afternoon as you please.
