    Zadar historical center is a pedestrian zone, perfect to explore on foot. Set out on a walking tour and admire the 16th-century walls built in by Venetians as a defense from The Turks. On to see the 16th century Port Gate where the Venetian lion still stands guard over the entrance, the Square of the Five Wells, Church of St. Donat, the Roman Forum (1st century BC) and the largest cathedral in Dalmatia, St. Anastasia.

    Day 7, Split – Bol – Hvar, Wednesday

    Stop in Bol, home to one of the best beaches in Croatia, the Golden Horn. This long, golden pebble beach is unique in that it changes shape and position depending on the winds. Go for a swim in the clear blue waters before sailing to Hvar. Here, a sightseeing tour includes views of the first public theatre in Europe (older than Shakespeare’s theatre in the UK), the Franciscan Monastery, and many more historic sights. The evening is free to explore Hvar and to dine on your own at one of the excellent restaurants. (B,L)

    Day 9, Mljet – Dubrovnik, Friday

    In the morning sail to Dubrovnik, so called “Pearl of Adriatic,” a UNESCO World Heritage site.
