Afternoon arrival in charming Slano, this traditional fisherman’s village was once fortified and is famous for its oysters. From Slano we head towards Ston, a sought-after seaside town that is known for its oyster production.

After returning to the ship we sail to picturesque Korcula. Famous as the birthplace of explorer Marco Polo, you’ll meet our local guide just outside of the walled Old Town for a walking tour through the historic interior, viewing Venetian-Gothic buildings like St. Mark’s Cathedral, Arneri Palace, and the Bishop’s treasury while learning more about the landmarks as well as the history of Korcula itself.

One of the most remote islands along the Dalmatian coast, it was only opened to the public in recent years after being closed off for four decades while used as a military base, leaving it wonderfully unspoiled of much commercial development. You may choose to enjoy its traditional architecture, lovely beaches, and atmospheric vibe along the stone streets with a walk through Vis Town, stopping to take advantage of one of the outstanding tavernas.

When conditions are right, you can enter on a small boat tour to experience its otherworldly-like blue glow that occurs when the sun enters through a crack in the rock, reflecting off the white limestone sea bottom. Afterward, we’ll continue to Hvar, known for attracting international jet setters with world-class restaurants, lively bars, and clubs. Upon our arrival, join a wine-tasting tour, visiting one of the most popular wineries on the island in Jelsa.

You can enjoy a swim off its shores, nearly all of which are surrounded by dreamy clear turquoise waters. Or, head into Bol to enjoy people-watching while sipping coffee. After lunch, we continue to Trogir, where you’ll be able to take in the sights of this living open-air museum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with its stone homes, palaces, monasteries, churches, and defensive walls. It also holds the finest example of sacral architecture in Croatia, the Cathedral of St. Lawrence.

Afterward, wander through the maze-like complex on your own, browsing the ships and enjoying dinner in one of the many enticing restaurants or cafes.
