There, during our sightseeing tour, we see the first public theatre in Europe, the Franciscan Monastery and much more. Our evening is free in Hvar so you can explore even more and dine on your own at one of the many restaurants in town.
Note: Due to the limited capacity of the Hvar harbor (during peak season in July and August) the port of call can be substituted for Stari Grad/Jelsa. In that case, transfers by bus will be organized to and from Hvar.
Day 4 HVAR – BOL – SPLIT, Wednesday (B, L)
We sail to Bol, home of the Golden Horn, one of the most breathtaking beaches in Croatia.

Here, a walking tour shows off the historic inner city, built around the Palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We see the remnants of Split’s Roman heritage, its Renaissance and Gothic structures, Jupiter’s Temple, the Peristyle, and the Cathedral. The evening is free to discover more of Split.

The Šibenik area is home to two National Parks: Krka, with its breathtaking waterfalls, and Kornati, comprised of more than 140 islands with numerous coves and crystal-clear water.
