Our English speaking guide will do a morning Split City tour, walking us through the world famous Diocletian’s Palace. Split is the second largest urban centre in Croatia and the seat of the Split-Dalmatia County. Over 1700 years old, Split abounds with cultural and historical sights, lots of them situated within the Split’s historical nucleus which has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list ever since 1979. At 12 am we’ll sail out for Trogir, another city inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Lunch will be served on board and we’ll have a swim stop en route, arriving to Trogir in the afternoon.

Once we stop in Bol, you can enjoy indulge in simple pleasures such as taking a walk around this nice little Dalmatian town, perhaps having a cup of coffee or a swim, until lunch is served on board. After lunch we shall continue cruising to Vis. Being an important strategic military stronghold for a long time, Vis was spared the excessive tourist development and thus retained its unspoilt beaches, ecological agriculture and traditional architecture.
