The Dalmatian Coast is defined by the sapphire waters of the Adriatic Sea, and Croatia is where over the centuries the richest Mediterranean cultures have intersected and influenced each other.
During the Dubrovnik and the Dalmatian Coast tour, we will discover the Old World city of Zagreb, explore Roman remains in the white marble cities of Split and Trogir, see Greek temples strewn among the hills, the Byzantine mosaics in shadowy, candle-lit churches and ornately carved Venetian palaces in Dubrovnik. We'll discover the quintessential Mediterranean landscapes of spellbinding red-roofed towns spilling to the sea, idyllic beaches and secret coves surrounded by the Earth's bluest sea and timeless islands rising out of the horizon. We'll get a chance to appreciate the Dalmatian spirit which fills the air with the scent of lavender and cedar, with warmth and an unhurried pace. We'll sample great seafood and amazing wines, sail on an antique galleon boat, try freshly caught oysters and local champagne, and enjoy the spectacular show of nature among the impossible waterscape of blue-green lakes and waterfalls in Plitvice Lakes National Park.
