Enjoy morning guided tour of Dubrovnik to find out more about its rich history. The special charm of this old city are the buildings that have remained from the time of the old Dubrovnik Republic.

Bicycles can also be hired to cycle around the paths that surround the lakes. We continue to Korčula where we arrive in late afternoon.

City of Hvar offers plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes that are open long into the night. Hvar is often referred to as the sunshine and jet-set island

 

TUESDAY HVAR - VIS (B, L)

Our next destination is the island of Vis, which was, because of its unique geographical position, a strategic harbour for the navy and closed to the public until recently. Because of this isolation, Vis has a special charm of ‘the Mediterranean as it once was’ which makes it really interesting to see. Overnight in the town of Vis, situated on the northern side of the island, developed near the remains of the ancient Issa, first urban centre in Croatia. If interested, visit the remains of the Roman thermal place, City museum or simply take a walk enjoying the views of the beautiful villae rusticae situated along the waterfront.
