Meet your Travel Director and fellow travellers this evening for a Welcome Reception and evening orientation drive.

Spend the morning exploring Zagreb with a Local Specialist before travelling through romantic landscapes to the lakeside resort town of Bled, where we'll stay the next two nights. (Buffet Breakfast)

Day 3 Bled Sightseeing
Enjoy some free time today to connect with this enchanting setting, but not before you sail on Lake Bled's crystal-clear waters to Bled Island to view its Church of the Assumption. Spend the rest of the day exploring on your terms, or consider joining an Optional Experience to Slovenia's largest glacier lake. This evening, savour local Slovenian flavours as you 'Connect with Locals' at a traditional Be My Guest dinner with a local family. (Buffet Breakfast, Dinner with Wine)

Day 4 Bled – Ljubljana – Opatija (2 Nights)
We leave the beauty of Bled behind for one of Europe's smallest capitals. Embark on an orientation tour of Ljubljana this morning, admiring its Old Town, bridges and Castle. We continue to the seaside resort of Opatija. (Buffet Breakfast)

Day 5 Rovinj Excursion and Opatija Free Time
The Croatian fishing port of Rovinj is our destination this morning. 'Dive Into Culture' as we stop to taste the world-famous and delicious Istrian white truffles. We'll join a Local Specialist to wander through the old town and witness its Mediterranean influences. We return to Opatija for some time on our own. See the statuesque nymph, her hand outstretched to cradle a seagull as a symbol of this region, and admire the belle-époque architecture. (Buffet Breakfast)

Day 6 Opatija – Plitvice
The extraordinary natural beauty of Plitvice takes centre stage today as we embark on a guided walking tour. Admire the cascade of spectacular waterfalls and crystal-clear waters reflecting green, grey and blue against the lush landscapes. Enjoy dinner at your hotel against this picture-perfect backdrop. (Buffet Breakfast)

Day 7 Plitvice – Trogir – Split (2 Nights)
Today, we visit the walled island of Trogir with a Local Specialist. The stone town is connected to the mainland and the island of Ciovo by bridges and will delight lovers of art, and Renaissance, Baroque Romanesque architecture. We continue our journey to Split, where we'll join a Local Specialist for a sightseeing tour, which includes entry into Diocletian's Palace, built for the emperor's retirement. Spend the evening on your own, or join an Optional Experience to enjoy traditional Dalmatian flavours. (Buffet Breakfast)

Day 8 Split Free Day or Optional Excursion to a Dalmatian Island
Delve into centuries of heritage on this free day in Split. Consider a full-day Optional Experience to one of the Dalmatian Islands. Ascend the bell tower for magnificent views of the sprawling terracotta roofs and white marble façades that edge onto the Adriatic. Or savour the city's delicious gastronomy at cafés tucked away in hidden lanes. (Buffet Breakfast)

Day 9 Split – Ston – Dubrovnik (2 Nights)
The terracotta rooftops of Dubrovnik beckon, but not before we stop to admire the extraordinary walled city of Ston, with its dramatic views and laidback fishing village atmosphere. Visit Europe's oldest salt pans and hear how salt has been harvested here since ancient times. We continue to Dubrovnik where you can wander through the colourful lanes or maybe climb the medieval city walls. (Buffet Breakfast)

Day 10 Dubrovnik Sightseeing
Tread in the footsteps of Lord Byron and George Bernard Shaw, who were intoxicated by the allure of Dubrovnik. With your Local Specialist, you'll embark on a sightseeing tour past the Rector's Palace, Onofrio's Fountain and the Franciscan and Dominican monasteries, before spending time on your own.
