Jewels of Dalmatia: Zagreb to Dubrovnik

Duration
8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,040

FIRST-CLASS | ESCORTED TOUR: Explore the Dalmatia region in 8 days starting in Zagreb and ending in Dubrovnik. Enjoy comfortable transportation, first-class hotels, daily excursions and knowledgeable tour guides. Some highlights of this program include the imposing Cathedral in Zagreb, Plitvice Lakes, Diocletian's Palace and the Franciscan Monastery with its historic Pharmacy.


Follow the sparkling Dalmatian coast on this 8-day trip through Croatia.

Too often overshadowed by the coastal towns, Croatia’s capital Zagreb holds its own with top-notch museums and cultural attractions. A city tour puts things into context before you take the rest of the day to explore. One of the most popular, if unusual attractions is the moving and surprisingly tender Museum of Broken Relationships. Alternatively, explore some of the countryside before going on to the spectacular Plitvice Lakes to see inland Croatia at its most spectacular.

Visit artistic Trogir on your way to Split, home of Diocletian’s Palace. This is just the grandest and best known of many Roman remnants in Split. You’ll have a full day at leisure here for a deeper dive into its history and charm, or to take an optional day trip to Hvar, one of the most beautiful islands on the Dalmatian Coast.

End your Dalmatian travels in the shining jewel of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik. This walled city has become almost too popular in recent years thanks to its starring turn in Game of Thrones. But there are still lots of ways to beat the crowds as you get lost in its streets, go beyond the old town, graze your way through Dubrovnik’s booming culinary scene, and of course, explore the famous walls. It’s a great spot for day trips as well, crossing into neighbouring Montenegro to visit the Bay of Kotor, or Bosnia & Herzegovina to visit Mostar and its famous bridge. You might even want to extend your stay a day or two to fit it all in.
