Day 3: Split, Croatia

The captivating port of Split, located on the Dalmatian coast, is one of Croatia’s star-attraction cities. Immerse yourself in the ancient atmosphere of its old centre, admire Diocletian buildings, or wander the city’s spectacular waterfront and shade yourself under the palm trees.

Split is a vibrant city with an atmospheric old town centre. An excursion guides you into its most ancient district, home to fashionable boutiques, galleries, and cafés. At the core of Split’s old quarter is Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Chosen by the Roman Emperor Diocletian as his retirement residence, this vast 4th-century A.D. mansion sets the tone for the aesthetic of the neighbourhood. Afterwards, visit the St. Duje, a 4th-century cathedral featuring an Imperial Roman mausoleum and bell tower. Then, wander the narrow streets and passageways to soak up the city’s culture.

If you love magnificent landscapes, take an adventurous excursion to Krka National Park in beautiful Šibenik-Knin County. There, you’ll have the opportunity to walk among the wildlife and visit the scenic Skradinski Buk waterfall. Fed from the glorious waters of the River Krka, the waterfall cascades into a green-blue natural pool. Conclude your tour at a captivating ethnographic exhibition housed in a picturesque old mill.

Day 4: Trieste, Italy

Peculiarly, the Italian city of Trieste is entirely surrounded by Slovenia. This physical isolation is underlined by cultural departures from the motherland too. With historic connections to Austria's Hapsburgs, the city also has German, Jewish, Slavic and Greek influences. Well worth a visit is Castello Miramare, overlooking the blue waters of the Adriatic. Dominating the city is the fortress, Castello di San Giusto, where you can enjoy picturesque views from the adjacent memorial garden. Below the castle walls is the 14th century Cattedrale di San Giusto where the remains of San Giusto (St Justus or Just) are held. If you're seeking a more laid back for coffee and food at Piazza dell'Unita d'Italia. The architecture will keep you occupied as you watch the world go by, or why not toss a coin into the quaint fountain nearby? The unique atmosphere of Trieste has a special kind of appeal. With the Slovenian border just a few miles away, it's no surprise that the Slovenian language is often heard.

Day 5: Zadar, Croatia

What sets Zadar cruise port apart is its gentle mix of old and new. The historic old town is a mixture of Roman ruins alongside cosmopolitan cafes, and medieval churches nestling against modern museums of culture. Happily, Zadar is not spoiled by tourism. And yet it offers a number of lovely attractions, ideal to explore during your time in port. Its two most popular attractions are the the Sea Organ and the Sun Salutation. Zadar may not be a picture postcard destination, but it has its own beguiling charm. It's a warm, inviting, vibrant city where you can while away the hours sipping vino at street cafe, or take to the water and enjoy some adrenalin-fuelled watersports. Its restaurants are well known for serving an eclectic menu of local and regional cuisine. And if you fancy venturing inland a little, its nearby countryside is truly breathtaking.

Day 6: Dubrovnik, Croatia

Despite the magnificent 13th century walls that surround the city, Dubrovnik is one of the most welcoming cruise destinations in all of Europe. Dubbed “the pearl of the Adriatic” by the poet, Lord Byron, this Croatian city exudes romantic charm and beautiful scenery with its shimmering marble streets, centuries-old buildings capped by bright orange roofs, and lovely beaches ensconced between awesome rocky ledges. 

Dubrovnik is famous for the spectacular medieval city walls which enclose Dubrovnik's Old Town are its most famous monuments, with their towers and four forts which have protected the city from Venetian and other incursions for hundreds of years.  

Fun Fact #1 Dubrovnik, being an independent state at that time, was the first nation to formally recognise the United States as a nation when it declared independence from Great Britain.  

Fun Fact #2 The necktie was invented in Croatia and is called a “cravat,” which is derived from the word “Croat.”
