Day one

Flight to Dubrovnik or Split. A coach will take you to one of our selected four star hotels for three nights half-board: either the Hotel Park in Makarska, a small hotel nestled around two coves, the boutique Hotel Plaza situated opposite the beach in delightful Omis or the Hotel Olympia in the traditional coastal village of Vodice. All hotels provide a great base for our programme of visits over the next few days.

Day two

After breakfast take the drive inland to the Krka valley where the river Krka flows through a series of gorges, lakes and rapids before meeting the sea. The whole valley has been awarded national park status and today you will visit part of the area. See one of the most dramatic stretches of the river where several tiers of waterfall tumble into a broad, shallow pool. Spend some time taking in the surroundings before returning to your hotel during the afternoon.

Day three

You drive along the coastline to visit Split, famous for one of the greatest structures of the Roman Empire – the huge palace of the emperor Diocletian. Marble came from Italy and columns and sphinxes from Egypt, whilst during medieval times it was totally integrated into the fabric of the town. The temple of Jupiter became a baptistery and 3,000 people still live within its walls. This afternoon you visit the medieval citadel of Trogir, one of the most charming ports in Dalmatia.

Day four

This morning you head south, following the coastline en route to Mostar. With its 16th century mosques, Turkish houses and the fine 19th century town hall. You can still see and hear skilled artisans making all sorts of metal goods in their tiny workshops much as they must have done for hundreds of years. Mostar’s principal claim to fame is its stone bridge linking the two halves of the old town. Continuing to Dubrovnik, we stay four nights on a half-board basis at the excellent three star superior rated Hotel Argosy, or its neighbouring sister hotel Tirena, situated on a rocky promontory into the Adriatic, with sea views.

Day five

Today you have a guided tour of Dubrovnik, a Baroque city nestling behind huge imposing ramparts in a situation of outstanding natural beauty. The main avenue, lined by unspoilt intimate cafes, is paved with marble, which reflects the midday sun giving credence to its description – ‘pearl of the Adriatic’. You will find an array of monasteries, decorated churches and civic buildings dating from the 14th century, reflecting Dubrovnik’s artistic heritage.

Day six

Following the coastline to nearby Montenegro. You visit the medieval town of Kotor, nestling below a mountainside, in Montenegro’s most dramatic setting. Its market is from yesteryear, with individual stalls selling local homemade cheese, cured hams, honey and Mediterranean vegetables. You continue your journey visiting the medieval town of Budva and then cross the inland sea by boat, returning to Dubrovnik.

Day seven

Today you have a free day to explore Dubrovnik as you wish, or perhaps take a cruise around the harbour.

Day eight

A coach will return you to the airport for your flight home.
Hotel Plaza in Omis four star

A village, dominated by two medieval fortresses with remnants of the old city walls still intact. The hotel is shaded by pine forests and is set in a cove on a stretch of coastline. The sea is crystal-clear and there is a welcome lack of development. The hotel is approximately a ten minute stroll from the centre of Omis, is comfortable and has direct access to the beach. It has a wellness centre, restaurant and bar with a terrace overlooking the beach. The modern rooms are well appointed all with private facilities, air conditioning, minibar, safe and hairdryer.

North of Split, on the Sibenik Riviera in the resort of Vodice is the four star Hotel Olympia.

This traditional coastal village is surrounded by the sea, islands and rivers. The Olympia is situated a short walk from the Harbour, and has indoor and outdoor bars, restaurant, wellness centre and outdoor pool. It offers access to a pebble beach. All rooms are air conditioned with balcony, minibar, safe, private facilities and hairdryer. All hotels provide a perfect base for our programme of visits over the next few days.

Three-star superior Hotel Argosy or its sister Hotel Tirena

A contemporary hotel and exceptionally well managed. It is situated on a rocky promontory into the Adriatic and therefore has sea-views on three sides. All rooms have private facilities, air-conditioning, minibar, safe and hairdryer. The hotel provides us with an excellent relaxing base for continuing our tour.

Please note: Where hotels feature an outdoor swimming pool, this will be open summer months, weather permitting.

My wife and I very much enjoyed the holiday stay in Vodice and Dubrovnik. I thought the visits were good and the guided tours of Split and Dubrovnik were interesting. The highlight of the trip was the visit to the Krka National Park to see all the clear water cascading over the falls.
