Croatia & Italy's Coastal Treasures

8 Days / 7 Nights

Dubrovnik, Naples, Sorrento

Travel and LeisureFodorsUSA TodayNew York TimesNational GeographicWashington PostVogue

From a well-preserved medieval town and the pleasure of savoring top-quality oysters and wine to exploring the charms of one of the world's most famous coastlines, this one-week itinerary across the seaside treasures of Croatia and Italy has it all. Start your trip in picture-perfect Dubrovnik and take a boat cruise to admire the turquoise waters and spectacular beaches that adorn the Dalmatian Coast. Continue your trip to Italy with an adventure across the Amalfi Coast that includes a day trip to cosmopolitan Capri and a hike along The Path of The Gods, one of the most scenic trails in Europe.

If time isn't an issue, why not extend this itinerary by seeing more of Croatia or Italy - or both - on the same trip? In Croatia, continue your quest to unlock the secrets of the country's dramatic coastline by visiting historic Split and spending lazy moments on the islands of Hvar or Korcula. In Italy, don't settle for just a day trip to Capri, but add a few days on the island instead, for a taste of heaven in a setting that combines natural beauty with style. You can also spend some time in rugged but oh-so-enchanting Naples, eating pizza to your heart's content and wandering around the ruins of the once mighty city of Pompeii, before ending your trip with your version of a Roman holiday in the Eternal City.

Our team members in Croatia and Italy will be available to you leading up to and during your trip to answer any questions and arrange local services. You will receive access to your Guest Page, with information on the best these destinations have to offer, including things to see and do, and other inside tips from restaurant recommendations to tipping advice. Upon arrival, we will provide you with a local SIM card or e-SIM with data that you can use to reach your local JayWay contact (who you will meet in person) throughout your trip. In all of our destinations, we offer a variety of memorable 3- to 5-star accommodation options, including boutique hotels and charming B&Bs. With our firsthand experience, we can ensure they are all clean, comfortable, and centrally located, with local ambiance.

To call Naples rough around the edges would be quite the understatement. Yet amidst the chaos and beneath the grime is one of Italy's true gems. It's the third-largest city in the country, home to over three million people. An important port city for all the civilizations that have existed there, Naples is the original melting pot. Founded as Neapolis (literally "new city") by the Greeks in the 7th century B.C., Naples has many layers of history for you to discover.

Suggested activities for an additional cost, depending on your choice

There are several ferries a day to and from the island of Capri, making this an easy self-guided day trip. Once you arrive at Marina Grande you could hop in an open-top taxi or take the funicular to visit the town of Capri for some shopping. The quieter town of Anacapri is more suitable if you're looking for a laid-back kind of place. From both spots you'll be able to admire the views over the island and over the Bay of Naples. Another popular option is to take a boat to the island's most famous sight, the Blue Grotto.

One great way to enjoy both the island and the water is a boat trip. This is available as a group tour on the ferry or as a private tour.
