Croatia with Montenegro
As Montenegro is one of Croatia’s next-door neighbors, it’s easy to combine a visit to both countries by booking the Croatia Montenegro Deluxe Balcony Cruise. Sailing on the chic MS Markan, known for her luxurious cabins with private balconies, you’ll depart from the ancient city of Split where the fun immediately gets underway with a tour of Split’s famous 4th-century Roman emperor Diocletian’s Palace, home to some of the world’s most well-preserved Roman architecture.
The first stop on your itinerary is the island of Korcula, known for its dense forests, picturesque beaches, and fairytale-like Old Town, surrounded by walls, bastions, towers, and gates. You’ll take a tour with a local guide to discover the historical center with its significant Venetian influence. Cruising back to the mainland, explore Dubrovnik, one of the most famous cities in Croatia, known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic.” Marvel at its magnificent historic buildings lined along the limestone paved streets on a tour with a local guide, including the Renaissance-style Sponza’s Palace and Gothic-style Rector’s Palace.
From here, you’ll head to Montenegro, just an hour’s drive away, for a full-day trip. Marvel at some of the most awe-inspiring mountain and fjord scenery along the way, with a stop to visit the gorgeous Venetian-Gothic buildings in Perast along the Bay of Kotor. After a short guided tour here, you’ll head to the walled Old Town of Kotor for a locally-led tour of its numerous medieval buildings and enjoy a traditional Montenegrin lunch before returning to Dubrovnik. Continuing the cruise to the Peljesac Peninsula, you’ll get to know it through its flavors, including a tasting of freshly harvested mussels and oysters, said to be some of the world’s best.
The remainder of this unforgettable journey includes sailing through the dazzling Pakleni Islands and visiting sunny Hvar with its endless vineyards, lavender fields, idyllic beaches, and historic landmarks in Old Town Hvar. Your final stops bring you to one of Europe’s most famously beautiful beaches, Zlatni Rat, and medieval Trogir, which is like an open-air museum.
