Duration
7 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,331

Discover Croatia’s surprising spectacular beautiful coastline where dramatic cliffs rise out of the sea and picturesque islands are scattered everywhere. Visit the interesting and charming resorts of Trogir, Korcula, Split, and the “jewel in the crown”, Dubrovnik each with their own individual attractions.


Join one of our unique small group Back-Roads touring experiences (maximum 18 participants) that includes specially selected accommodations, transportation in purpose built Mercedes Benz Sprinters, sightseeing, special culinary experiences and a knowledgeable Tour Leader. Click here for all the EXCLUSIVE DIFFERENCES.

This 7-day journey along the Croatian coast reveals why this Roman-influenced country is Europe’s most happening seaside destination.

Starting in Trogir, dive headfirst into Croatia’s most of Greek, Roman, and Venetian influences, ever present in the architecture and layout of the older cities. Then go on to Split, one of the Coast’s highlights, and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Explore the palace of Roman emperor Diocletian as part of a walking tour of this historic city. Turning North, lose yourself just long enough in the streets of Sibenik, then enjoy Krka National Park, where Croatia’s natural beauty is laid bare.

BRTA description of Korcula reads like a Mediterranean wishlist. A beautiful island where beaches surround olive groves, vineyards and ancient villages, medieval charm is alive and well here. Spend a spare day in the local cafes or on the beach before going on to Orebic, an old town that has winemaking down to a fine art. Enjoy a winery tour then journey on to the jewel of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik.

Croatia’s walled city is no longer the ‘hidden gem’ it once was. But that’s a tired cliché in any case, and Dubrovnik is anything but tired, with a delightful, labyrinthine old town and a highly appetising restaurant and bar scene. A Croatian folklore performance bids you a fond farewell. But why leave so soon? Your final day is devoted to the Elaphite Islands, where a delicious farewell lunch rounds out your time in the country that’s redefining the Mediterranean getaway.

    Hotel Korcula is the first hotel ever built in Korcula. It dates back from 1912 when tourism and travel was privilege of wealthy European middle classes. It is the oldest and most atmospheric accommodations in the town. The construction of this 22-room hotel in 1906 gave Korcula a new vocation - tourism, that soon became the island's mainstay. Tucked between the medieval town's massive walls and a stunning azure bay, the Hotel Korcula has a grand facade and vine-covered terrace dressed with white wicker and linen table cloths.
