Days 1 Dubrovnik
Arrive Dubrovnik. Depart Dubrovnik at 4.00pm for Slano, 37km north of Dubrovnik.
Day 2 Slano–Mljet Island
Cruise to the idyllic island of Mljet (pronounced 'mil-yet'). Covered in olive groves, vineyards and dense forest, Mljet is known as the greenest island of Croatia. Thirty-seven kilometres long, there are several villages, two salt water lakes and a Benedictine Monastery on St Mary Island.
Day 3 Mljet Island–Makarska Riviera
An idyllic and picresque spot with vast pine forests stretching along the slopes of the Biokovo Mountains to reach the fine pebble beaches with crystal clear waters. After lunch cruise to Makarska town or one equally delightful.
Day 4 Makarska Riviera - Split
Cruise to Split. After a guided city tour you have the evening to discover the fascinating Old Town.
Day 5 Split - Hvar
Leave Split this morning and pass between the islands of Brac and Solta on course for Hvar. Hvar’s gently rolling hills are painted brilliant purple by fields of lavender while lush vineyards nestle at the foot of the island’s ragged mountains. Explore the city of Hvar: the fortress perched on the hill above the old town, the Cathedral, Arsenal and the Franciscan Monastery.
Day 6 Hvar - Korčula
Supposedly the birthplace of Marco Polo, the medieval walled town of Korčula sits on a small headland. Wander the town’s narrow walkways lined with Venetian architecture and many monuments. Climb to the top of St Mark’s Cathedral for spectacular views of the town, the Peljesac peninsular and the sparkling Adriatic Sea.
Day 7 Korčula – Dubrovnik
Continue your cruise to the Elaphiti Archipelago, a group of 14 idyllic islands and islets, stopping for lunch and swimming on long sandy beaches. In the afternoon return to Dubrovnik. Sail below the mighty city walls of Dubrovnik’s Old Town and beside magical Lokrum Island to the Port of Gruz.
