Day 1
Arrive Dubrovnik, Croatia

Arrive in Dubrovnik, a walled city on the shores of the sunny Adriatic Sea, where you are met and transferred by private car to your hotel. The balance of your day is at leisure. Arguably the loveliest city in Croatia, and once a medieval center of maritime trade that rivaled Venice, Dubrovnik was heavily damaged by military conflicts in the 1990s. Today, however, its old city — since restored to its former glory — is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Today, venture to the heart of the city’s walled Old Town for an engaging visit to a local silversmith’s workshop. Your guide will take you behind closed doors, where you witness traditional methods used by talented local artisans to create incredible works of art in silver and gold, plying a trade practiced here since the 13th century. Witness the entire process that starts with a simple silver wire through an intricate technique of shaping and forming that renders a finished piece. During this A&K-exclusive experience, learn the history of the recini (earrings) and the Konavle button (or Puca), traditional pieces of Croatian jewelry famed for their timeless beauty and craftsmanship. Afterward, journey to the quaint seaside town of Cavtat, making a stop for coffee before driving back toward your hotel, and stopping at Mount Srd for stunning views of Dubrovnik City, the Elaphiti Islands and Montenegro.
