Days 1–4: Opatija and Zadar

Your first stop in Croatia is Opatija , a centuries-old town overlooking Kvarner Gulf near the Adriatic Sea. A popular resort destination, the area is dotted with cliff-side mansions that are bathed in sunshine most of the year. Next, you’ll travel about three hours south to Zadar. This coastal city has been around for more than 3,000 years and has a wealth of ancient ruins to show for it. Medieval churches can be found throughout the city, where you can also see the ruins of the Roman Forum, which dates back to the 3rd century.

Days 5–7: Split and Dubrovnik

Just south of Zadar is Croatia's largest city, Split. A sightseeing tour will introduce you to some of its iconic architecture, including Diocletian's Palace—a UNESCO World Heritage site that Lonely Planet calls "one of the most imposing Roman ruins in existence." The marble palace and former fortress dazzles with Egyptian sphinxes and towering columns.

The next destination, Dubrovnik, is nestled in the foothills of Mount Srdj, along the shores of the Adriatic Sea. You’ll explore historic landmarks such as St. Lawrence Fortress. Nicknamed “ Dubrovnik's Gibraltar,” it sits atop an ocean-side cliff just outside the city’s walls. In the heart of Dubrovnik, the Franciscan Monastery houses 14th-century artifacts and one of the world's oldest pharmacies.

Days 8–11: Zagreb, Ljubljana, and Bled Castle

After a jaunt to Zagreb for a walking tour of Croatia's capital city, the final leg of the tour takes place in Slovenia. In Ljubljana, you'll explore a vibrant open-air market before making your way to Bled Castle. Built in medieval times, the castle—among Slovenia's oldest—rises from a nearly 500-foot cliff overlooking the icy waters of Lake Bled. Inside, you’ll find stunning views of the Julian Alps and visit an old wine cellar where you can bottle and label your own wine.
