Cruise from Split to Split with Ave Maria
The perfect option for everybody who visits Croatia for the first time. Stop off at the most popular destinations: Hvar, Brać, Korcula, Mljet and last but not least – Dubrovnik, one of Croatia's most visited historical towns located in the very south of the country. This signature cruise offers a great portion of inspiring sight-seeing, fantastic swim stops, nature experience and incredible local cuisine. Both embarkation and disembarkation is in Split, which makes it easier in terms of arranging flights and holiday extension after the cruise.
Transfer from the Split airport or hotel to the Split harbour where the vessel will be docked. Check-in from 14.00 h onwards. After settling, enjoy the guided tour of the city at 17.00h (not possible for late arrivals). Split is a historic town under UNESCO protection and part of the world heritage. One will find an abundance of Roman architecture – of special interest is the magnificent Diocletian palace, once inhabited by the Roman emperor. After the tour of Split, return to the vessel for a welcome reception and cocktail. Enjoy the meet-and-greet party on board.
In the morning, a departure from this magnificent town and cruise towards the Island of Korčula, best known as the birthplace of Marco Polo. Stop for lunch in one of the secluded bays en route. Early afternoon arrival in Korčula followed by a guided walking tour of the enchanting town fortified by walls. Korčula treasures more legends, tales and monuments than any other place, discover some wandering along the herringbone pattern streets. Korčula has an abundant choice of restaurants for a great gourmet experience and there are many bars and clubs for those looking for evening entertainment.
The next morning, head further south to the Island of Mljet. Join the cruise manager for a stroll to the famous salt lakes in the Mljet National Park and enjoy the boat ride to St Mary Isle, where an ancient Benedictine monastery, an old abbey and a Church dating from the 12th century is situated. Return to the vessel for lunch, followed by departure towards Dubrovnik. Late afternoon arrival in Dubrovnik, but before docking at the Gruž harbour, the captain will arrange an evening dinner cruise alongside the old city walls. 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. Afternoon transfer to the village, followed by a visit to a local farm to indulge in a heritage dinner with Croatian delicacies and local dishes made from their own produce. Late transfer back to the vessel.
Morning departure towards Hvar. Lunch on the small Island of Šćedro, followed by a swim stop at the Pakleni Islands. Arrival to Hvar in the afternoon. Hvar is the longest Island in the Adriatic and one of the sunniest; known for lavish lavender fields and breath-taking beauty. One can find many historical landmarks in Hvar such as the Renaissance cathedral with its original tower and the oldest community theatre in Europe which was founded in 1612, to name a few. Hike up to the town fort overlooking the harbour to get some lovely scenic views of the vessel and the Pakleni islands. In the evening Hvar offers an abundance of entertainment - many restaurants, bars and cafes are open long into the night.
Today’s destination is the Island of Brač and the picturesque town of Bol. Walk along the promenade or swim at one of the most famous beaches in Dalmatia – Zlatni Rat (the Golden cape - known for its gravel promontory shifts from side to side as the wind and waves constantly change its shape). Bol is a typical fishermen’s town turned into a popular tourist destination. After lunch on board, time at leisure until wine tasting.
