DAY 1 – VENICE
This exquisite city, that seems miraculously built on water, never loses its capacity to enchant. With 118 small Islands all linked with quaint bridges the majority of Venice is classed as a World Heritage Site.
DAY 2 – TRIESTE
Tumbling down to the Adriatic from a karstic plateau and almost entirely surrounded by Slovenia, this glorious port city is physically isolated from the rest of the Italian peninsula.
DAY 3 – ROVINJ & PULA
The town of Rovinj was originally built on an island and fortified with a double ring of walls, the remains of which can still be seen.
Pula is an archaeological goldmine. There is evidence of early man from 1 million years ago found in a nearby cave, Neolithic settlements thousands of years old and many Roman remains.
DAY 4 – LOSING & KORNATI ISLANDS
Losinj Island, a gently undulating forested island. It can be considered Croatia’s ‘Jewel in the crown’, and was the preferred holiday resort of the Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Josef.
The Kornati Islands; these Islands have a unique beauty: the landscape is lunar, the sea is crystal clear, and despite boats and people around, there is an air of desolation.
DAY 5 – ŠIBENIK
The oldest native Croatian town Šibenik stands on a site which has been inhabited for thousands of years. The city’s magnificent medieval heart, gleams white against the placid waters of the bay and the stone labyrinth of steep back streets and alleys are a joy to explore.
DAY 6 – HVAR
This picturesque small bay town holds a wealth of history including a cathedral and associated monastery. There is opportunity to wander along the main square, explore the sights on the winding stone streets or swim at the numerous beaches.
DAY 7 – LASTOVO
The remote island of Lastovo is known for its pristine untouched natural beauty and in 2006 was named by the government a protected “Nature Park”. The only activity on the island is agriculture, specifically viticulture, and the ‘Lastovo Maraština’ is a full-flavoured dry white wine that is famous throughout Croatia.
The main town is actually a lovely tumbledown village of stone houses and sleepy cats with a
castle on the hill overlooking the natural amphitheatre form of the village
DAY 8 – MLJET
The island is of volcanic origin and has numerous chasms and gorges, the longest of which is Babino Polje, which connects the north and south. Much of the island is covered by forests and the rest is dotted with fields, vineyards and small villages. The island is also known for its wine, olives and goats cheese.
DAY 9 – DUBROVNIK
With its sublime location, overlooking the calm blue waters of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik is one of the world’s most magnificent walled cities, and deservedly known as the Pearl of the Adriatic.
DAY 10 – KORČULA
According to legend Korčula was founded by the Trojan hero Antenor. What is more certain is that the island has been settled since Neolithic times, with the Greeks, and later the Romans. The present town of Korčula dates from medieval times and parts of the defensive walls and the Triumphal Arch still exist.
DAY 11 – TROGIR & SPLIT
Trogir is a historic town complete with many architectural treasures, in particular its Romanesque churches and fine Venetian villas. The old town has retained many intact and beautiful buildings from its age of glory between the 13th and 15th centuries.
