Dine this evening in a local restaurant and spend another night in Sarajevo.

Enjoy the scenic coastal drive to Dubrovnik and check into the Hilton Imperial Hotel (or similar).

Day 4 Dubrovnik, Croatia / Embark

Set on a rocky peninsula jutting in to the Adriatic Sea, Dubrovnik is one of Europe's best-preserved medieval cities and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city contains within its ramparts the Rector's Palace, the Franciscan Monastery, which houses a 13th-century pharmacy (the oldest in Europe), and the baroque Cathedral, with works by Renaissance painters Titian and Andrea del Sarto. Enjoy a morning walking tour of Dubrovnik and leisure time in the afternoon to explore on your own. Embark the Corinthian this evening.

Day 5 Dubrovnik, Croatia / Kotor, Montenegro

Drive to thei historic and elegant Cavtat. After exploring the town, sail the deep, fjord-like Bay of Kotor to reach the port town of the same name. A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kotor's fortifications and most of its monuments date from the time of Venetian rule. A tour of this delightful town reveals its magnificent walls, palaces, and churches, including the 12th-century St. Tryphon Cathedral, which contains a rich collection of artifacts.

Day 6 Korcula Island, Croatia

Visit St. Mark's Cathedral and its Treasury, the Bishop's Palace, the Church of All Saints, the Icon Museum, and Marco Polo's home.

Vis is one of Croatia's most beautiful and unspoiled islands. Dock at Vis Town and drive across the small island to quaint Komiza, which has retained its medieval character and architecture. Later discover Hvar, a fertile island of rosemary, lavender, and laurel. Hvar's architecture is unmistakably Venetian. Our tour includes a visit to the 17th-century Municipal Theater, the Franciscan Monastery, and its small gallery, the city's Loggia, and St. Stephen's Square. Continue by bus to the 16th-century fortress for spectacular views of the Hvar Town's rooftops and harbor.

Split is an ancient city centered around the formidable Palace of Diocletian, built in A.D. 295-305. An extensive structure, much of which is well-preserved, the palace contains within its walls Split's medieval town, making it the only palace that had been continuously inhabited since Roman times. Our tour of this expansive structure includes a visit to its underground cellars, the Mausoleum, Jupiter's Temple, the Peristyle, and the Norther Gate.
