BACK TO CONTENTS

Highlights: Each cruise has been carefully designed to give you the freedom to explore at your own pace. ■

Hvar: Popular not only for glorious beaches and its 13th-century walls, the port town of Hvar has much to explore, including the hilltop fortress, which is lit up with a stunning golden glow at night, and the main square with its Renaissance-era Hvar Cathedral. Split: Modern life coexists within an ancient Roman setting and seafood is passionately served in its many restaurants. Visit Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO recognised monument, central to the origin of the city. Kotor: Wonderfully located in a bay near the cliffs of Mt. Lovćen, the fairytale-like Montenegrin town of Kotor still exemplifies long Venetian rule, while being a great destination for adventurers. Korcula: Famous for its dense pine forests, Korcula is one of the larger islands at around 20 miles long and almost 5 miles wide. The stunning Korcula Town is known locally as ‘little Dubrovnik’, due to its familiar looking medieval squares and churches, whilst the plentiful sandy beaches and quiet coves that line the southern coast are simply delightful. Sarandë: The perfect place from which to explore the UNESCO World Heritage-listed site of Butrint, an ancient city once inhabited by Greek and Roman Colonies. The walls and ruins are located within a wonderful natural setting and are part of a large national park, dating back an estimated 2,500 years. Krk: With its abundance of natural beauty, the ‘Golden Island’ of Krk is one of Croatia’s hidden gems. Wander the seafront promenade of Krk Town, marvelling at the glistening waters, or get lost among the cobblestoned streets and the ancient Roman remains. 21
