Enjoy the spectacular views of this magnificent ancient town.
After breakfast, transfer to the old town for a guided walking tour to enjoy this magical town. There will be plenty of opportunities to take great pictures as the cable car takes us from the Old Town to the Srđ mountain to enjoy scenic views of the Walls and the Elaphiti Islands. Afternoon at leisure to find idyllic spots for lunch and dinner. Meander through the narrow car-free limestone streets – worn smooth under the soles of centuries of pedestrians, seek out a drink in one of the trendy piazzas or walk the famous 1,940 m long walls and take a stroll along the famous STRADUN – both a street and a square, a promenade inside the city walls.
Early morning departure towards the Pelješac peninsula, home to Croatia's best-known red wines: Dingač and Postup. Before lunch, a short stop at one of the Elaphiti Islands and afternoon arrival to Pelješac peninsula. Today, move away from the shore inland to explore the rural areas.
