Split | The Palace of Diocletian

Venture to Split’s magnificent historical center to stroll with your guide around the lively Green Market and enjoy watching the locals as they sell their wares from open-air stalls. See the fresh seasonal produce and taste a local delicacy called soparnik, a savory, pie-like pastry made with chard and garlic. Navigate the maze of medieval streets leading to the imposing Palace of Diocletian. Built in the third century by a Roman emperor who was native to the region, it is a unique remnant of the glories of the Roman Empire. Admire the richly decorated octagonal St. Domnius Cathedral, originally the emperor’s mausoleum, and gaze at the beauty of surrounding buildings and grounds. Next, follow small winding streets to a Jewish synagogue that dates back to the 1500s. Also, meet a local family for an olive-oil tasting session complemented with traditional homemade snacks. After this extraordinary glimpse into local life, head to Split’s waterfront, lined with cafés, and then drive to the Mestrovic Gallery, to view works by sculptor Ivan Mestrovic, whose art is displayed around the world. Anyone familiar with Chicago’s Grant Park knows Mestrovic’s bronze masterpieces, The Bowman and The Spearman. Enjoy the remainder of your day at leisure.

Next, view the Arsenal, an impressive building once used to refit galleons as well as the Benedictine Nunnery, where resident nuns produce the world-famous agave lace.

Day 5
Dubrovnik | Pearl of the Adriatic

Depart Hvar by public ferry to the mainland, and then head south to Dubrovnik. Nicknamed the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” it is among the best-preserved medieval walled cities in the world. As you travel along the coast, stop in the fishing town of Ston on the Peljesac Peninsula. Historic Ston has beautiful examples of medieval architecture and fortified walls, as well as numerous monuments. The town is also known for its oysters and salt works. You may wish to have lunch here in a typical Dalmatian restaurant and sample the famous mollusks. On arrival in Dubrovnik, check in to your hotel, which overlooks the Old Town. Once a medieval center of maritime trade that rivaled Venice, Dubrovnik was heavily damaged by military conflicts in the 1990s. Today, however, its Old Town — since restored to its former glory — is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The remainder of your day is at leisure to begin your exploration of what is arguably the loveliest city in Croatia.

Afterward, head out from Dubrovnik to the fertile Konavle Valley, travelling through vineyards, orchards and fields of grain. Once there, witness the traditional methods of weaving silk, performed by talented artisans using skills handed down for the past 500 years.
