Cruise Itinerary

 

Day 1, Saturday:  Split - Trogir

Transfer from Split Airport to Split Port for embarkation. 1300HRS is our departure time from Split Port, late arrivals can join in Trogir. After lunch, we cruise to the old Dalmatian town of Trogir (Greek relief from the 4th century was found here). Trogir is sometimes referred to as “miniature Venice” or “miniature 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 a UNESCO World Heritage Site and there’s a great choice of bars and restaurants. Overnight in Trogir. (L)

 

Day 2, Sunday:  Trogir - Šibenik

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. (B, L)

 

Day 3, Monday:  Šibenik - Skradin - Krka - Zlarin or Vodice

Wine and waterfalls! Cruise towards Skradin then board the coach. First stop is the famous Bibich Winery for wine tasting and light tapas lunch. Back in Skradin we 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 100m wide, and the Krka River tumbles 45.7m. A never to forget experience is swimming under the falls so bring your swimming gear 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. (B, T, D)

 

Day 4, Tuesday:  Zlarin or Vodice - Kornati - Sali

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

 

Day 5, Wednesday:  Sali - Zadar

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 centre 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 centre and by the waterfront. From historic places to the contemporary, don`t miss a visit to the famous Zadar Sea Organs and “The Greetings to the Sun” light installation, both are spectacular. Overnight in Zadar. (B, L)

Day 7, Friday:  Rogoznica - Split

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.
