Slovenia & Croatia

With Derrick OIsen

About this Trip

In a region well worth exploring for its natural beauty alone, visit spellbinding archaeological sites, impressive cathedrals, dramatic palaces, and ancient city centers that illuminate the layered history of the Dalmatian Coast. Begin the program in Slovenia’s capital city, Ljubljana, and discover magical Lake Bled before continuing to Croatia to begin your 7-night Adriatic cruise. Sail along the Croatian coast from the Istrian Peninsula to Dubrovnik, calling at Velika Brijun, Pula, Zadar, Split, Hvar, and Korčula along the way. A leisurely pace allows for free time in town to sample local cuisine and mingle with locals.

From $6,192 per person plus airfare
