The Hidden Gem of Croatia
Your Croatian journey begins in the capital, Zagreb, exploring its historic core – on foot, by funicular and cruising its streets in a replica Model T Ford. A short hop to the north will then whisk you to the lush, rolling hills of the Zagorje region to adore its castles, vineyards and traditional villages, one of them now an open-air ethnography museum. Via Istria’s truffle-packed forests, renowned olive groves and a striking, 14th-century Venetian fort, you’ll then head for the coast to the pastel port of Rovinj. Take in the breath-taking falls and turquoise lakes of Plitvice and the Roman ruins of Pula and Split, enjoying top-notch wines and Dalmatian delicacies along the way. Harvest oysters on a memorable island jaunt off the Adriatic en route to your final destination, Dubrovnik, where more wandering awaits along its cinematic ramparts and picturesque cobblestone streets.
