Visit the old walled city of trendy SPLIT, where the narrow cobbled streets of the old town are just wide enough for a donkey with 2 baskets.  You won’t want to miss the large farmers market (where local farmers have been bringing their produce for 1500 years) and the emerging restaurant scene in the old town and along the Split promenade.

Walk the walls of the ancient trading city of ICONIC DUBROVNIK & visit historic, KORCULA where Marko Polo is said to have been born and where some of the oldest and best Croatian wines are produced.

Or discover the mediaeval hill towns of BUCOLIC ISTRIA and see for yourself why the italians, Venetians, and the Austro-Hungarians have come for centuries.   Construction on the ancient Roman forum and amphitheater in HISTORIC PULA (coastal Istria) was begun in 27AD.   Today the arena is the only remaining Roman amphitheatre to have four side towers and all three Roman architectural orders entirely preserved.  You can still see where the gladiators entered the arena and the 2 cisterns, once filled with perfumed water to sprinkle on the spectators.

Our guides are local experts, who know the anecdotes, the history, the culture and the local narratives. Our academic tours pair up local guides with scholars and experts in the cultural heritage, art, architecture, and history of the region.
