Dubrovnik offers an unusual blend of modern culture and ancient traditions. Marble-like polished limestone streets, a labyrinth of alleyways, and breathtaking architecture compose the unique atmosphere of the Old Town.

Day 1 - Arrival in Dubrovnik

After your flight arrives in Dubrovnik, we will have someone meet you at the airport and bring you to your centrally located Dubrovnik accommodation.

Romantic Dubrovnik

Suggestion to explore on your own

Dubrovnik is a one-of-a-kind coastal destination that makes a wonderful place to travel with your sweetheart. From real romance to outdoor fun, there’s something for every couple’s mood here, and the incredible natural surroundings will have you feeling like you’ve stepped into a fairytale. We have two favorite places to watch the sunset: Buza Bar, where you’ll have excellent cocktails and snacks and an incredible view as dusk comes on. The restaurant Restaurant 360° perched atop the city walls might be even more impressive, with unbeatable views of the city and the Adriatic. It’s one of the most incredible panoramas in the entire region. And, since the gastronomy here is so fresh and delicious, why not learn how to make it together at a special cooking class with a local chef. It’s a fun way to bond and have fun as you learn to create fresh seafood and grilled dishes then sit down to feast. Fans of TV’s Game of Thrones will already know Dubrovnik is King’s Landing in the series, so why not go on a Game of Thrones selfie tour, taking a kiss at each of the filming locations. Talk about unique postcards! A boat ride to nearby Lokrum is also very romantic, as you can really get back to nature on this pristine island, and sample some of the local food and wine.

It’s an ideal way to get oriented in the city and set yourself up for further exploration. Continue your day in Dubrovnik after the tour with a ride on the cable car up Mount Srd' to take in the views or get another view of the town by walking the ancient walls that surround the city.

Hvar is one of the most romantic destinations in Croatia, where you and that special someone can take advantage of the beautiful natural setting to enjoy a magical time together. Hvar town is offers numerous spots to enjoy an unencumbered view over the skyline and out to the water. We’d especially recommend the Adriana Rooftop Bar, where you can enjoy excellent local wines, classic cocktails and delicious cuisine. Atop Hvar fortress you’ll have an even better vantage point of the entire town below and beyond to the Pakleni archipelago. And, since Hvar is surrounded by lovely countryside, you can also rent bikes and pedal out of the city to explore the fragrant lavender fields and picturesque vineyards, where of course you can sample some of the local vintages. It’s also easy to arrange a wine tour to really get a taste of all the regional varietals.

2 Nights in Split

The Roman Emperor Diocletian made Split his home in the 4th Century AD, building 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 its ancient walls. These days there is an embankment in front of Diocletian's palace but the water used to go right up to the main 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 is 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's port. If you base yourself in Split for a few days, you will find it is also perfect located for visits to some of Croatia's most stunning national parks.

Be Together in Split

Suggestion to explore on your own

Split may not have the most romantic name in the world, but it is a lovely city for a romantic holiday, with a perfect mix of vibrant nightlife and fun outdoor activities. The landscape here is incredible, poised just on the edge of the Adriatic. If you plan ahead to come here during the Split Summer Festival, you’ll get to enjoy the absolutely unique atmosphere as you watch theater and opera on Peristil Square. But you can enjoy the city at any time of year. Renting bikes is a great way to explore the area together, and Marjan Hill is especially inviting, with views over the city and the sea. Speaking of the sea, kayaking at sunset is one of the most romantic outdoor activities imaginable. This is a wonderful place to stay active together, but you can also just relax and lounge on the beach.
