After getting settled in, we’ll depart for the romantic island of Rab where you’ll join a local guide for a tour of the enchanting Old Town. You’ll see artists, inspired by its beauty, creating and displaying their works, and you’ll enjoy a tasting of the island’s signature cake, invented by local nuns for a visiting pope.
