The Ancients celebrated Croatia’s beauty - now its fashionable rivieras are the 2014 must-see jewels of the Adriatic

Dalmatian Explorer

Sail from island to island – moor at quiet harbours and next to architectural wonders.
Sipan’s fishing village, historic Korcula – the home of Marco Polo’s family, UNESCO heritage-designated Split, sophisticated Hvar, the green forests of Mijet and ancient Dubrovnik are all on the itinerary. A free bar for 11 hours a day, free wifi and all meals are included on this relaxing cruise that gets to the heart of Croatia.

Jewels of Croatia
This all-inclusive, three-centre holiday includes four nights in historic Solin. Explore nearby towns including Salona, once the fourth largest city in the Roman Empire, and tour Split’s magnificent
17 centuries-old Diocletian’s Palace. Take a ferry to beautiful Brac, home to the world-famous stonemason’s school, to spend a week exploring the island before returning to Tucepi, on the  Makarska Riviera. Squeeze in a visit to the ancient city of Dubrovnik before you fly home.
