Itinerary

Saturday SPLIT – TROGIR (L)

13.00h is our departure time from Split harbor, late arrivals can join in Trogir. After lunch, we cruise to the old Dalmatian town, of Trogir (Greek relief from 4th century was found here). Trogir is sometimes referred to as “miniature Venice” or a “mini Dubrovnik” because of its ancient walls, or a floating museum town – as it has a masterful architecture including some stunning Venetian palaces. Join our guided tour of Trogir with a local tour guide. The old town is an UNESCO heritage site and there’s a great choice of bars and restaurants. Overnight in Trogir.

Sunday TROGIR – ŠIBENIK (B, L)

Šibenik is almost in the very central part of Croatia’s Adriatic coast and is our todays destination. Enjoy the guided tour of the glorious old town Šibenik, the cultural monuments and possibly the most famous one here, the UNESCO listed Cathedral of St James. Wander and discover the historic core and waterfront. Some good boutique shopping too. Overnight in Šibenik.

Monday ŠIBENIK – KRKA WATERFALLS (Skradin) – ZLARIN or VODICE (B, T, D)

Wine and waterfalls! During breakfast, cruise towards Skradin then board our coach. First stop is the famous Bibich winery for wine tasting and light tapas lunch. In the morning or afternoon, we will walk through the Krka Waterfalls National Park and visit “Skradinski Buk”. Jaw droppingly beautiful, this is the most popular part of the waterfall area. There are 17 waterfalls, with cascades up to 100 m wide, and the Krka river tumbles 45.7 meters. A never-to-forget experience is swimming under the falls so bring your swimming things and enjoy the crystal-clear fresh water. Overnight in Vodice or Zlarin, depending on the state of the port and port authorities. Vodice are a typical Dalmatian town and Zlarin is a tiny island in the Šibenik archipelago.

Tuesday ZLARIN or VODICE – KORNATI/SALI (B, L, D)

Today we visit the Kornati National Park which is actually made up of 100 islands and reefs. This is really something remarkable to see as inlets on some islands descend steeply into the sea, a hundred meters deep in places, and are dramatically razor sharp. The islands are rich in fish and cultural and historic remains. There are ruins of old Ilyrian fortress, Roman villas, the old Christian church of St. Mary and medieval fortresses and settlements among these islands. Overnight is in Sali on Long Island (Dugi Otok in Croatian). Dinner on board.

Wednesday SALI – ZADAR (B, L)

Our morning is reserved for swimming. In the afternoon, we depart for Zadar where we spend the night in the port. Here you can join a guided tour of the city with a local tour guide. Zadar was important for centuries as the metropolis of Dalmatia, and today it is the center of the region. It has been a city rich in monumental heritage of world importance and the most visited sites include the Roman forum dating back to the 1st century AD, the church of St. Donatus from the 9th century AD – the most famous Medieval basilica and the symbol of the city, the mighty city walls with the representative Port and Land gates from the 16th century AD. Also, numerous glorious palaces, and villas. There are many superb restaurants in the center and by the waterfront. From historic places to the contemporary, don`t miss a visit to the famous Zadar Sea Organ and “The Greeting to the Sun” light installation, both are spectacular. Overnight in Zadar.

Thursday ZADAR – ROGOZNICA (B, L, CD)

During breakfast, we continue our journey towards Rogoznica. Lunch is served en route followed by a stop in a quiet bay (known to the Captain!) for an afternoon swim. Overnight in Rogoznica – a small village that offers many restaurants and small cafes. Do try the famous Babic wine that is made locally. Captain`s dinner with live music on board.

Friday ROGOZNICA – SPLIT (B, L)

This is a serious swimming day for those who like that as we travel back to the Split Riviera! We stop in one of the bays on Čiovo island (connected to Trogir by a bridge). In the afternoon, we continue toward the last port of call while enjoying the fabulous views of Split Riviera’s coastline and islands. Join our guided tour of Split with a local tour guide. Split is a monument city under UNESCO protection that is there for everyone to enjoy, both residents and visitors, because it is in the world heritage. Here examples of Roman architecture are plentiful – of special interest is Diocletian’s palace, built by the Roman emperor as his retirement home. Enjoy the evening wandering through parts of the palace and along Split’s famous waterfront. Overnight in Split.

Saturday SPLIT (B)
