The Republic of Dubrovnik has been a vital commercial center for centuries, shuttling goods between Byzantium and the east and Venice and the west. Reaching its peak in the 15th and 16th centuries, foreign merchants travelled freely in and out of Dubrovnik and the city had a large fleet of merchant ships that travelled the world over, as far as India and America. And so the merchants brought stories, ideas and goods home to Dubrovnik – further influencing the amalgam of culture, which spread across Dalmatia.
What not to miss in Dubrovnik:
- City walls, Pile & Ploce gates
- Church of St. Blaise
- Franciscan Monastery
- Dominican Monastery
- Stradun Placa
- Rector’s Palace
- St. Luke & St. John Fortress

Konavle Walking Tour
Peljesac Day Trip

Korcula Town is one of our favorites – beautiful and unspoiled it is truly like taking a step back in time. It is small enough to wander in a few hours, but you will want to linger.
What not to miss on Korcula island:
- Stone obelisks in the old town, built as a tribute to the powerful princes that once ruled the city
- Walk along the fortress walls and defence towers, reminiscent of those in Dubrovnik.
- St. Mark’s Cathedral, an architectural masterpiece situated in the heart of the Old town
- The impressive artefacts that date back to the Greek and Roman period
- The Museum of Icons, which is home to a unique collection of Byzantine artifacts
- Wander the picturesque narrow marble cobblestone streets
- Visit the Marco Polo museum (Korculans claim he was born here) – quaint and fun
- Traditional Moreška sword dance, a long-held tradition on the island that dates from the time of medieval battles with the Turks
Our favorite restaurants in KORCULA TOWN

“They came for a moment and stayed for a lifetime ” . . . so the saying goes.
Once you arrive, you will understand why. Dotted with age-old villages, Brac is the gateway to Dalmatia – timeless and unspoiled. Brac is where yachts come and go all year around . . . where sailing traditions are a lifestyle . . . where olives are still pressed in the villages . . . where grapes are still harvested with family and friends . . . where stone is still crafted by hand . . . where life still continues in harmony with nature . . . where sun and sea still order daily life.
Hvar town is the glamour spot of the Dalmatian coast. Hvar Town harbor is packed from May through September with luxury yachts, private sailing yachts, local motor boats and taxi boats – a charming mix of traditional local lifestyle, glitterati and international trend setters. The town is now famous with bars and restaurants lining the piazza and stretching the length of the quay. Names like Carpe Diem, Hula Hula and Central Park Club have become famous.
But the back story of Hvar island is behind the glitter – charming, old-world and unspoiled. In villages across the island and along the coast, life continues apace with local wine making, lavender harvest, fishing and every day village concerns. Quaint stone villages are scattered across Hvar among beautiful vineyards, hidden bays and the rocky lavender fields of the interior. We really love the coastal villages such as Jelsa, Vrboska, Sveta Nedilja, Ivan Dolac and Zavala. You will see some of these on your tour.
Some of our favorite restaurants:
- Gariful in Hvar town on the harbor quay – touristy but good fish
- Palace Paladini in the Hvar old town – pretty open air restaurant
- Passarola Restaurant – one of the best in the old town Hvar
- Paradies Restaurant – nice mix of traditional restaurant with new cuisine in Hvar old town
- Pizzeria Jelsa – has more than just pizza – in Jelsa
- Me and Mrs. Jones: despite the name a good restaurant in great location on the harbor in Jelsa
- Bistro Kod Damira – on the harbor in Stari Grad – very good organic menu with fabulous desserts
- Restaurant Bilo Idro, in Sveta Nedjlja, on the small marina, is a owned by the Plenkovic winery family – a nice way to do some good wine tasting and enjoy traditional Dalmatian cuisine in a pretty setting on the sea
