Day 1 – Arrival to Split
Welcome to Split! As a second-biggest city in Croatia, Split is the main harbour in Dalmatia region and a starting point for many holidaymakers.
The Diocletian’s Palace makes the core of the Old Town and a symbol of modern-day Split, incorporating an eclectic combination of Roman temples, Gothic palaces and modern Mediterranean-style stone houses.
We will organise a private tour of Diocletian’s Palace and Old Town so you can learn about Split’s history in great detail.

To start your day, visit Klis fortress, lodged in the mountain above Split. In the past, it served as a line of defence against Mongols and Ottoman empire.
Later, continue towards Trogir. This Medieval island town is another UNESCO-listed site in Croatia. Walk the streets of Trogir admiring preserved Kamerlengo castle and tower and a series of dwellings and palaces from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods.

You will get to see the incredible layout of the town which protects against wind in winter and increases air circulation in summer, a truly ingenious design.

During your tour, you will also get to visit town of Ston, with its 7 km long walls, built in 14th century.
Day 6 – (OPTIONAL) Picnic on Badija island
Badija is a small island in front of Korcula Town, easily reached by a taxi-boat from Korcula harbour. With its crystal-clear waters and tranquil beach, it’s a perfect place to enjoy a relaxing day of sun and sea with an old Franciscan monastery in the backdrop, or have fun snorkelling. The island is also home to some friendly deer, creating an idyllic scene. Bring some food with you and enjoy a picnic in the shadow of the pine forest, perhaps with a glass of local wine.
Day 7 – (OPTIONAL) Explore Korcula agritourism
Korcula island has become known for its family-run farm restaurants, and there are many small inland agritourism places outside of Korcula, where a family will offer you home-made and traditionally-prepared dishes, so enjoy an experience eating al fresco, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves.
