Another of Croatia’s UNESCO sites, Trogir is a very picturesque town, not far from Split, offering a rich history, plenty of culture and excellent food. This historic town evolved within its medieval city walls, on a small island connected by bridges to both the mainland and the island of Ciovo. Trogir is very easy to get to from Split. There are regular coach services from the main bus station throughout the day and in summer there’s also a passenger ferry that takes around one hour. Covering 142 square metres, this is an area of outstanding natural beauty. It’s famous for its magnificent waterfalls, including the famous Skradinski Buk, a collection of 17 waterfalls that range in height of 45 metres. Easily accessible by coach or an organised excursion, it's a perfect day trip from Split

The atmospheric town is steeped in history and sites of interest include the ancient fortress, a Franciscan monastery and St. Stephen’s square, the largest and most beautiful Venetian piazza in Croatia. The bell of St. Stephen’s cathedral rises to four levels, each one more intricate than the last. North-west of the square, lies a labyrinth of charming streets with small palaces, churches and old Dalmatian houses. For superb views of the Adriatic and the Pakleni Islands, climb up to Hvar Fortress.
Renowned for being the reputed birthplace of Marco Polo, Korcula offers a rich history and excellent beaches. Its fascinating Old Town is of course a little smaller than Dubrovnik’s but is still a wonderful place to explore. You can easily get to Korcula from Hvar Town by fast catamaran. Every day between May and September it departs early morning and returns in the evening making a full day trip perfectly feasible. The islands opposite Hvar are the Pakleni islands, a stunning archipelago of tiny emerald isles, set in the glistening Adriatic. They’re a popular destination for beach goers with some of the best beaches in the area. There's numerous ferries to and from each day, most of which go to Palmizana Bay, where pine forests and heather fields provide the perfect backdrop to pristine waves licking the sandy cove.
After checking out of your hotel in Hvar, take the catamaran to Dubrovnik, duration approximately 3 hours. After arriving at your chosen hotel in Dubrovnik, relax poolside or the beach for a slice of R&R in the Croatian sun.
Head into the old town, a UNESCO world heritage site, celebrated for its outstanding cultural and historical heritage boasts entire streets and buildings perfectly preserved to create an awe-inspiring Roman environment. Walk the city walls and head up the cable car for unbelievable views!
A highly recommended day trip from Dubrovnik is Mljet National Park. This large area includes two azure salt lakes, surrounded by pine forest. It’s a great place to explore by foot, bicycle and kayak. The waters are also very warm and clear, so having a dip is also highly recommended.
