A walking tour of Old Town will take you to its elegant main street and most of its most important sights: The Franciscan Monastery, Onofrio’s Fountains, Sponza Palace, Orlando’s Column, the City Bell Tower, the Church of St. Blaise, the city’s patron saint, and Rector’s Palace, the seat of the Republic and the Cathedral. This is the perfect orientational tour of the Old town and will give you the best insight into the rich history of Dubrovnik.

Optional: Explore Outside the City Walls
Let’s get the adrenaline pumping today, shall we? A sea kayaking excursion or a buggy adventure are two great activities we highly recommend. The Buggy Safari is an hour-long excursion that lets you drive off-road to see wildlife, fortresses, former minefields and war sites. It all culminates in a dramatic 360° view of the entire region from Srd mountain.
If you’d rather explore sea than land, a 3-hour sea kayaking excursion is your best choice. You’ll paddle along the walls of Dubrovnik, getting a new view of the city, then go for a swim in one of the secluded coves, where you’ll really become one with nature.

A little about Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik offers an unusual blend of modern culture and ancient tradition. Marble-like polished limestone streets, a labyrinth of alleyways and breathtaking architecture compose the unique atmosphere of the Old Town. You’ll experience a true variety of sightseeing, leisure and outdoor adventures here. Dubrovnik’s most stunning feature is the 82-foot tall city wall which extends more than a mile. Game of Thrones fans will be in luck, as we offer a special tour to local set locations. King’s Landing never looked so good! There’s a rich selection of live performances for music lovers here, as concerts are performed daily, and in July and August the Dubrovnik Summer Festival of music, theatre and dance brings incredible performers from around the world. The nightlife is also exciting, with restaurants, cafes and bars that will keep you socializing until dawn. You’ll be staying in beautiful accommodation within short walking distance to all the major sites, so you’ll be able to sample a little of everything. But there are also several exciting day trips and cruises to enjoy. From kayaking through hidden coves to an authentic Croatian cooking class, vineyard tours, and trips as far afield as Montenegro, you’ll have more than enough to fill your itinerary.

You’ll be treated to an off-road tour through typical old villages, combining amazing scenery with authentic local charm. The unspoiled nature, panoramic views, and luscious groves are a sight to behold. You’ll stop at villages including Pitve, which dates back 2,000 years, for a delicious lunch of locally sourced cuisine, and maybe even a glass of the famous local rosé wine.

A little about Hvar

One of the gems of the Adriatic, Hvar is more than a beautiful coastal town. It’s also an ancient epicenter of culture, boasting the oldest communal theater in Europe, the largest square on the Croatian coast and a stunning medieval fortress dating back to the 7th century. There’s a little bit of everything here, from history and architecture to modern culture, outdoor adventures and isolated beaches. Whether you want a vacation that’s action-packed or something more relaxing, Hvar -- named one of the top 10 world summer party spots by MSN -- will offer more than enough variety to please you. The longest of the Adriatic islands, Hvar’s fertile landscape makes it perfect for growing grapes, giving you several local vineyards to visit. Be sure to sample the local cuisine, which emphasizes freshly caught fish, baked bread and vegetables grown on the island. We can offer a tasting tour at the finest local vineyards. Those seeking an active vacation will not be disappointed either, as there are several possibilities for sailing, swimming, exploring the sea caves along the coast. You can also take a hike in the hills overlooking Hvar, and go offroad with a local guide. This is a relaxing destination with warm locals. It’s an ideal summer vacation spot.

You'll arrive to the Split ferry port, and from there it is an easy walk to your accommodation in the city's Old Town. We will arrange for assistance with your luggage.

Included : Luggage Assistance in Split

Today you’ll exploring the inspiring city of Split with a local guide. You’ll be picked up at your accommodation and led through the UNESCO-listed 1,700-year-old Diocletian’s palace, which is just the beginning of the tour. You’ll also see the Cathedral of Saint Duje, one of the most beautiful cultural wonders on the Adriatic coast. And you’ll explore the ancient cellars as well as the square in the center of the palace. The stunning Roman temples will awaken the spirit of another time for you, as will the famous Golden Gate and the big statue of Grgur Ninski. This is the best way to get to know the incredible history of this beloved destination.

Eat where the Locals Eat
If you’re looking for a delicious lunch or dinner in Split, we highly recommend Konoba Fife, right on the harbor. Here you’ll find delicious local seafood and an authentic atmosphere at the right price. It’s a charming spot that’s inviting and unpretentious, authentic and definitely not stuffy. You’ll enjoy the atmosphere almost as much as the food. Be sure to ask about the daily specials.

Included : Split Private Walking Tour

Day 3

A rental car will be delivered for your use for the remainder of your trip in Croatia. It will be a manual transmission, so let us know if you'd prefer an automatic. We can also arrange for a GPS to be provided at an additional fee. After you have your car, you are off to discover Plitvice National Park. If you're planning to explore the park the following morning and want to fill the day there are plenty of potential stops, only a little off the route. Nature lovers will want to stop at the Krka National Park to see the stunning lakes and waterfalls, followed by lunch at Skradin on a picturesque inland bay. If you like wine, we can arrange for a special tasting at the renowned Bibich winery in the hills above Skradin, which is suddenly famous since Anthony Bourdain paid the place a visit. In Sibenik, you can visit the interesting UNESCO-listed Cathedral of St. James and then enjoy lunch at the excellent Pelegrini wine tavern next door.
Included : 4 day rental of a VW Up manual or comparable to be delivered in Split and returned in Rovinj

A little about Split

The Roman Emperor Diocletian made Split his home in the 4th Century AD and built a vast palace complex on the waterfront that stands to this day. In fact several of the accommodation options we offer in Split are nestled inside the walls. These days there is an embankment in front of the palace but the water used to go right up to the wall. It's on this man-made strip of land that you'll find the Riva, a pedestrian promenade bustling with life. Split's UNESCO listed Old Town is contained within these old walls and it's a pedestrian-only maze that it is quite easy, but fun, to get lost in. Who know what romantic hidden cafés you might find in one of the narrow streets and alleyways. To get the best out of your time in Split however, we recommend taking a tour with a local guide. Split is very well connected for flights, with an international airport a half hour drive away and is a popular stopping point for our guests on their way between Dubrovnik and the islands of Hvar, Vis or Korcula, all easily reached by a ferry from Split port. If you base yourself in Split for a few daysyou will find it is also well located for visits to some of Croatia's stunning national parks.

1 Night in Plitvice

Day 1

We'll advise you on the best way to reach your accommodation in Plitvice.

Day 2

Depending on whether you've seen enough of Pltivice, you can either depart for Rovinj in the morning or spend some time exploring the park and head out mid-afternoon. Along the way, be sure to stop in the picturesque seaside resort of Opatija, once the retreat of Habsburg-era nobility. You'll want to stroll along the famous boardwalk and perhaps enjoy a nice lunch followed by a drive along the breathtaking Kvarner Bay.

A little about Plitvice

The Plitvice Lakes are one of the most beautiful natural settings in Croatia. A visit here is always a joy. The national park has been UNESCO-listed as a World Heritage Site since 1979 and it’s easy to see why. You’ll find 16 lakes here in a stunning array of colors. Surrounding the lakes for 200 miles, the park has numerous hiking trails and plenty of places to appreciate the scenery. The lakes themselves stretch across five miles. This is nature at its most untouched!

3 Nights in Rovinj

Day 1

After your sightseeing stops, you'll probably arrive in Rovinj in the late afternoon, a good time to check in to your accommodation. Relax after your drive with an evening stroll around Old Town and the lively harbor area.

Day 2

Istria Self-drive Tour
If you have traveled to Rovinj in a rental car, a self-driving tour of the surrounding region of Istria is an excellent way to spend a day. This is a place of romance and myth that is often compared with Tuscany. From the hills to the coasts you can see the best of the region on a pleasant drive, and also taste some of the local cuisine. The stops we recommend most are Pula, with its ancient Roman amphitheater, and the hill towns of Motovun and Groznjan. All three spots have a charm of their own and really show off the best of the region's architecture, landscape and cuisine.

Day 3

Biking Zlatni Rt Park
Today’s a good day for a bike ride, don’t you think? We suggest exploring “Zlatni Rt,” also known as the Golden Cape Forest Park, which is closed off to motor vehicles. About 1.5 kilometers from the center of Rovinj, the park is easy to get to, and you can rent your bikes in town and ride there. You’ll be in for a scenic ride through gorgeous scenery. The main road goes directly through the park, and there’s also a beach to visit, on the other side of the thick woods. Keep your eye out to appreciate the local flora and fauna. In the summer there are numerous restaurants in the park where you can stop for a drink or something to eat.

Day 4

A driver will pick you up from your accommodation and take you to the port in time to catch the 3.5-hour ferry to Venice we will have booked for you.
Included : Rovinj-Venice Ferry , Rovinj Port Transfer

A little about Rovinj

Rovinj used to go by Rovigno, and to Italian-speakers it still does. This city was once part of the Republic of Venice and this is evident from the street names in Italian to the Venetian touches to the architecture. This laid-back spot also has a full cultural calendar, with numerous festivals taking place in the warmer months. We’ll help you get to know the local culture, with possible activities like a local wine tasting, a fish cooking masterclass with a local chef, or a truffle hunting adventure in nearby Croatia. Then, to work up an appetite for your next delicious meal, you could rent bikes and cruise through the breathtaking Zlatni Rt Park. You’ll definitely want to visit the local market too. History buffs will love visiting the local cultural heritage museum, which gives great insight into the region. When you’re ready to get in the car, a day trip to Pula is always fun. This busy port town hosts a large market packed with delectable local specialities, and also boasts a Roman amphitheater. You could even arrange a full-day private tour through the gorgeous region of Istria, where more delights await you inland.

3 Nights in Venice

Day 1

You'll arrive in Venice at the city's ferry port. Since Venice is a very unique city, transport options vary greatly based on the location of your hotel. Because the transport could vary, we won't include it in this package.

Day 2

Venetian Tapas and Wine Tour
Later today you'll be taking your taste buds on a delicious adventure with a small group tour of Venice's Bacari wine bars and their famous cicchetti dishes. These small tapas-style dishes are ideal for teaming with Italian wine, so tour the city's famous bars and try everything from fried olives to wedges of cheesy polenta.

Day 3

Murano and Burano
Today we suggest going off the beaten path and onto a boat to cross the water and explore two islands which are not islands at all. Murano and Burano are tiny archipelagos, collections of islands linked by numerous bridges. On Murano, the stately architecture is stunning but the main attraction here is the collection of incredible glassblowers, whose works in progress you can see at Murano’s many ateliers
. Burano is also an archipelago in northern Venice, consisting of four islands linked by many bridges. What you’ll notice first are the brightly painted houses, which make the island glow with an energy all its own. Largely inhabited by artists, it’s a great place to poke around and explore, including the Church of San Martino, which houses a classic Tiepolo painting from the 18th century. We can arrange tickets for a group boat trip but you might prefer exploring on your own.

Venice: A City for Lovers
Venice is a city of dreams and romance. A vacation here with your sweetheart will be a memory you’ll cherish forever. It’s hard to go wrong when you’re strolling along the canals in one of the most beautiful and unique cities in the world. You can enjoy a variety of excellent tours on land and water that will help you explore all of Venice’s secrets. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants and bars to visit, and the lights and live music on St. Mark’s square at night are just lovely. The atmosphere throughout the city is incomparable. Every little alley leads to some new discovery, and the ever-present sound of the sea is enchanting. But of course, no romantic visit to Venice is complete without a gondola ride. As you get close in your own private gondola, floating along on the gentle current as waves lap up against stairs leading to ancient palaces, you’ll know why Venice has always been a city for lovers.

Day 4

It's time to bid arrivederci to Venice but you'll get a good last look at the city as your private water taxi captain takes you to the airport for your departing flight.
Included : Venice Marco Polo Airport Transfer

A little about Venice

Venice is a legendary city with a charm and atmosphere all its own. The city was constructed on more than 100 islands connected by a series of canals, most of which are lined with gorgeous palaces, beautiful churches, and all sorts of impressive architecture. While the city isn’t huge, it is packed with pedestrian-only streets and quaint, winding alleys that will keep you exploring for days. The city is very popular with tourists year-round, so you certainly won’t be the only travelers walking through the streets with camera in hand. This being Italy, the cuisine in Venice is delicious, and we can especially recommend the Cicchetti of Venice tour. Cicchetti are Venetian tapas, and this tour will introduce you to some of the city’s most iconic eateries and its most delicious recipes. If it’s your first time in Venice, we can organize a tour to show you all the most important sites. And since no trip to the city of canals is complete without a boat ride, we offer a number of ways for you to get a new point of view of the city and its magnificent architecture. It’s easy to while away your time in Venice, discovering new secrets around every corner.

Reviews from guests who have traveled with us to at least half the destinations in this itinerary


The staff person who helped us plan the itinerary, was enormously helpful, knowledgeable about how to plan the trip; how long to stay in certain places, etc. He was also very patient when we made changes to our itinerary and/or our accommodations. We literally couldn't have planned the trip without him. An enormously helpful, informative, travel service that is essential for anyone traveling to countries they are not familiar with.

"The trip planning went very smoothly. None of the travelers were familiar with Croatia and we appreciated Carmine's input on the itinerary, hotels and potential tours. We did not choose to arrange many tours in advance, however the wine tasting arranged by JayWay was superb and we enjoyed the walking tours of Split and Dubrovnik. The JayWay staff that met us in Split and Dubrovnik were friendly and extremely helpful in orienting us and providing helpful recommendations. Ana was our contact in Europe prior to the trip. She answered all our questions in a courteous and timely manner and provided excellent restaurant recommendations for each of our destinations."

"We have just returned from our Croatia trip and I wanted to thank you, personally, for arranging a first class vacation for us. Everything went off without a hitch and the tours, drivers and hotels were outstanding. I am so glad that I took your advice and did Ljubliana as it was one of our favorite stops. I hope to go back some day and do more of the country, so will be in touch when that happens. Thanks again, Sherry"

"We had a great holiday in Slovenia and Croatia thanks to JayWay Travel. Right from the planning stage then working out the local arrangements, to on the ground support. Once there, Antonia was like a personal tour manager, always monitoring our progress and ever ready to help with anything we needed assistance with."

"We loved our accommodations. Each place had something special whether it was the location or the actual ambiance of the place itself. The owners love working with Jay and spoke highly of him personally. Met some other nice JayWay travelers and enjoyed their company as well. I have traveled extensively and this trip was one of the easiest and least stressful that I have experienced. We had the best time. Thank you."
