Discover sun-soaked Croatia, from the winding streets of Zagreb to the sparkling Dalmatian Coast and magnificent Dubrovnik, the epic walled city featured in countless films. Croatia’s complex history comes to life as you explore landmark sites, including Zagreb’s beautiful St. Mark’s church and Mirogoj Cemetery, designed by architect Hermann Bollé.

Delight in the misty waterfalls of Plitvice National Park; then linger in the passageways and courtyards of Diocletian’s Palace before enjoying lunch at a local fish market. Meet master craftsmen and get a taste of authentic island life on Brač and explore charming Trogir, one of the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic towns in Central Europe.

In glamorous Dubrovnik, tour a Franciscan Monastery and visit Sponza Palace, which houses ancient manuscripts. Along the way, expert lectures shed light on Croatia’s nautical history, Yugoslav Wars, modern life and much more. This 10-night journey includes first-class accommodations and an extensive meal plan, featuring wine with dinner.
