The island is rich in fascinating historical influences including the Greeks, Venetians and Turks. Korcula is the sixth largest Croatian Island being 20 miles long and approximately 5 miles wide. Spend free time exploring the island and perhaps purchase some of its famous exports such as olive oil and red wine.

Kotor was built between the 12th and 14th century and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on account of its medieval architecture and numerous monuments. It is a place where youthful exuberance and art meet tradition and antique architecture. Upon arrival in Kotor we join our local guide who will then introduce you to the sights and history of this beautiful Old Town. Afterwards, there will be ample free time for you to explore at your leisure. Amble through the narrow streets and squares and try the delicacy of ‘frustula’ a type of crunchy sweet cookie.

Zadar's 'Sea Organ' was assembled in 2005 by architect Nikola Basic and a team of expert stone masons. The organ is a musical instrument which looks like a set of steps disppearing into the sea, and has pipes placed so that the air and water create musical notes for passers by to enjoy. A guided city tour is included. Overnight in the Zadar/Petrcane region.
