Whether you stroll the Old Town filled with history, beautiful architecture, steep and narrow streets, take a walk along the town walls or ride a cable car up to the Srdj hill above the town, you will be amazed by the beauty of the Pearl of the Adriatic.

Have a morning in an unspoilt oasis of tranquillity that Mljet offers and explore the National park strolling around the spectacular Great and Small Lake and taking a local boat ride to the Islet of St. Mary known for its 12th century Benedictine Monastery. We then set sail for Korcula Island to arrive in Korcula town in the afternoon hours. You will find yourself in front of the town walls and the historic town gate, a reminder of glory and power of this little medieval place. It is just down the street that the famous traveller Marco Polo was born in 1254 coming from a noble family of Korcula town. You can savor all the uniqueness of Korcula by strolling its cobbled, narrow and shady lanes where you will find handcraft stores and shops with jewellery made from local coral germs. Learn about Korcula during our walking tour, enjoy rest of the evening in a laid back atmosphere of this jewel town and find a restaurant at your choice. Overnight stay in Korcula.
Meals on board: Breakfast, lunch

DAY 4 • KORCULA – VIS ISLAND
Enjoy another tranquil and relaxing day as we smoothly glide towards the town of Vis having a swim break and lunch en route. Vis Island is the most mysterious and the furthest of the central Dalmatian islands from the coast. The town of the same name developed from the former settlements Kut and Luka, which became one entity in the 16th century by the building of the church Gospa od Spilica. Serving as a military base for the Yugoslav army Vis was cut off from foreign visitors from the 1950s until 1989. Due to such isolation the island remained intact with its authenticity in nature, architecture, ecological agriculture, peace and quiet, all that you will enjoy during your free evening. Overnight stay in Vis town. Meals on board: Breakfast, lunch

DAY 5 • VIS – BISEVO ISLAND (BLUE CAVE) – HVAR
In the morning hours we sail for the tiny island of Bisevo. Covering 6 sq km, Bisevo would hardly be noticed at all except for its remarkable Blue Cave (Blue Grotto). Out of some ten caves scattered around Bisevo's coast, the Blue Cave is the most outstanding. Between 11am and noon on a sunny calm day, rays of the sun passing through an underwater opening illuminate the cave with a luminous blue light while objects beneath the surface shimmer in silver and pink. Please keep in mind that a visit to Blue Cave is weather permitting. You will have another great opportunity for you to dip yourself in the Adriatic Sea and enjoy lunch on board before calling the port of Hvar. Experience the enchanting town of Hvar situated on the island of the same name. Hvar is claimed to be the most popular Croatian island which you may realize while feeling the vibe of its bustling promenade, well-appointed cafes, wine stores, shops and restaurants. Join an evening walking tour to learn on the history and heritage of Hvar followed by presentation of centuries long lavender farming tradition. Overnight stay in Hvar.
Meals on board: Breakfast, lunch

DAY 6 • HVAR – BOL – PUCISCA (BRAC ISLAND)
We start our day with the morning departure towards Bol situated on Brac Island. Bol is well known for its pebbled beach called Zlatni Rat, claimed to be the most beautiful beach on the Croatian coast. Immerse yourself in a bath of sun and sea water or explore the town of Bol before lunch and continuation of our journey to reach the largest coastal village on Brac Island called - Pucisca. Shiny and white stone facades rising amphitheatrically uphill make this place so unique and famous for its quarries from which stone was excavated to build limestone columns of the White House in Washington DC, The Parliament House in Vienna and many other famous buildings all over the world. Pucisca is also known for Stonemasonry School where students learn to carve local limestone with traditional and unconventional tools that have been used for centuries. We will spend the night in this quiet small town where nightfall unifies the diverse features of Pucisca that have intrigued us by daylight.
Meals on board: Breakfast, lunch

DAY 7 • PUCISCA –OMIS - SPLIT
As you sip your morning coffee we cross the Brac Channel to arrive in Omis, the town located at the mouth of Cetina River. Omis has preserved its medieval town walls, stone churches as well as the most famous landmark – the Mirabela fortress. The old pirates of Omic used Mirabela as a lookout over the Channel of Brac, so that rich merchant ships had no way of sailing along the coast of Omis unnoticed. The fortress itself was built in the 13th century nowadays attracting visitors due to one of a kind view over the entire town offered from the top of the building. Our last cruise stop is Split, the largest Dalmatian city. Join us for a walking tour and explore with our guide some of the numerous archaeological, historic and cultural sites of Split. In 1700 year-old the historic core of Split inscribed under UNESCO World Heritage - and within a short walk distance from our ship- stands the massive Palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, dating back to the 3rd A.D. In the course of time the Old Town of Split developed inside and around the Palace which included three Roman temples and a massive mausoleum. Have an evening in Split on your own and find your favourite restaurant for farewell dinner. Overnight stay in Split.
