Dubrovnik to Venice in Luxury

Explore unusual and less visited towns and harbours as well as the great cities of the Adriatic; charming fishermen’s villages, unique National Parks, picturesque coves for swimming, and bustling port towns while sampling local Mediterranean cuisine. Our vessel carries a maximum of just 40 people but at 48 metres long she is is one of the largest vessels allowed into many of the small ports and harbours along this coastline. We will stop for a swim somewhere en route every day and on most evenings we are free to explore the restaurants of the towns we spend our evenings in.

Dubrovnik's old town is an extraordinary maze of medieval streets surrounded by a 3 kilometre long city wall. From Dubrovnik we head to the beautiful Mljet National Park with its monastery on an island on a lake on an island.

We head to some historic islands such as Korcula, birth place of Marco Polo, and Hvar. Split is dominated by the extraordinary Diocletian's Palace, one of the largest building of antiquity and now woven into the fabric of Central Split, and Zadar is a beautiful walled port town.

After Zadar we transfer to a coach to explore northern Croatia, staying in Opatija, on Croatia's 'Riviera' and visiting the walled sea port of Rovinj. We stay in the Grand Hotel Adriatic I in Opatija.

We then cross Slovenia taking time to visit the unique and beautiful Postojna Cave, before arriving at our hotel in Dubrovnik, the Carlton on the Grand Canal. We spend a day exploring Venice and the nearby Murano.
