Your Destinations

Dubrovnik

The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Dubrovnik Old Town is surrounded by city walls built between the 13th and 16th centuries. Stroll round these fortified walls, enjoy panoramic views of the city and the Adriatic Sea then step back in time when you take a guided tour of the narrow stone streets of the Old Town itself. 

 

The city is a treasure trove of cultural and historical attractions, and the stunning beaches, cuisine, and offshore islands are all outstanding too, making this a fantastic all-round destination.

 

Explore modern parts of Dubrovnik, such as Lapad Bay with interesting cafes, restaurants, and shops along the promenade. Take one of the many excursions on offer including horseback riding at Konavle Valley, Peljesac food and wine tastings, Elafiti islands fish picnics, or daily visits to Montenegro, Mostar or Medugorje. Round off your stay by boarding the Dubrovnik Cable Car which will whisk you to the top of Mount Srd in less than five minutes. From the mountaintop you will be treated to unsurpassed views of the entire city.

Split

This charming Dalmatian seaside city is brimming with history and attractions, alongside a wonderful, laid-back Mediterranean atmosphere, making it the perfect place for a sun-drenched holiday. Take a wander through the cobbled streets of Split's old town, feasting on the freshest seafood and browsing the upmarket shops and cafes along the seafront promenade - there’s so much to explore here.

 

No stay in Split would be complete with exploring the fantastical Diocletian’s Palace, a 4th century palace which dominates the city’s old town. Wander through these Roman ruins, some of the most impressive in the world, and feel yourself transported back hundreds of years. Afterwards, immerse yourself in Croatia’s cuisine at the daily Pazar Market, where you can barter for some local cheese or a bottle of Travarica, a herb brandy from Dalmatia.

 

Aside from the charms of the city itself, Split is rightly known as the starting point for trips to nearby islands, including Hvar and Vis; what could be better than spending the day aboard a boat, sailing on the beautiful Mediterranean?
