Day 2

Discover the beauty of Korčula

Leaving Dubrovnik behind, you’ll sail to the island of Korčula. Also known as Marco Polo Island, Korčula is bursting with olive groves, vineyards, pristine beaches and quaint villages.

Day 4

Discover enigmatic Vis and explore the highlights of Hvar and Fortica Castle with a local guide

A true “off the beaten path destination”, the island of Vis has spent much of its recent history serving as a Yugoslav military base, cut off from foreign visitors from the 1950s right up until 1989. This isolation has meant the island has been under populated for decades, resulting in a unique sort of paradise with beautiful beaches and rich vegetation of pine trees, olive trees and vineyards. In recent years it has become famed as the filming location for Mamma Mia 2. Explore this intriguing island before heading to Hvar in the afternoon, where on arrival you’ll enjoy a city tour including Fortica Castle. Towering high above the town, the medieval Fortica Castle offers wonderful views looking down over Hvar and the nearby Pakleni Islands.
