Venice & Coastal Croatia

The Adriatic Sea has an allure all its own. The deep turquoise-blue water, the ports along the shore no less beautiful than those on the Mediterranean, but surely less trendy. The history and architecture molded by thousands of years of Roman, Byzantine, Frankish, Slavic, Communist and finally Democratic rule.

On this 13-night tour, we'll discover Venice's cultural and architectural treasures as well as the best of coastal Croatia! Starting in Venice, we'll spend 3 days getting to know this romantic city: canals, churches and palaces, and pedestrian alleyways so beautiful you'll want to lose yourself in them. We'll continue along the coast into Croatia, and for 10 days we'll visit the jewels of this country that line the sea. Go truffle-hunting in Istria, walk on fortification walls in Dubrovnik, have a wine-tasting at a royal vineyard near Zadar and eat oysters fresh from the sea in Ston!

Join us for a vacation you'll never forget!.
