Enjoy the Adriatic islands and Dubrovnik
DAYS 1 and 2: SPLIT
Arrival at one of the airports in the region. Guided visit of Split, the second largest city in Croatia. When in year 305 the Roman emperor Diocletian, who then had almost the whole world under his rule, had to decide where to build his country villa to spend the rest of his life there, he had no doubts where that should be: in this special place of the Adriatic.
The old town is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. You may want to (optionally) enter the cellars of Diocletian's Palace that originally served as his retirement home. You will see the exterior of the Temple of Jupiter as well as of the Cathedral of Saint Domnius (locally called Duje), which was, by the ironic game of fate, previously the mausoleum of the last great persecutor of Christians. Free time for enjoying this exceptional place on the shore of the Adriatic Sea. Accommodation.
DAYS 3 and 4: HVAR
Early in the morning, after breakfast, we will take the ferry to the sunny island of Hvar, also the longest island in Croatia. Guided tour of the historical city of Hvar which in recent years has become one of the favorite destinations of high society. Free time to swim and enjoy the sun and the sea. Accommodation.

It is also famous for being the likely birthplace of the adventurer Marco Polo, so, if you wish, you can visit the house where he was supposedly born.
Optionally you can rent scooters to make tour around the island. It is worth seeing the "Moreska" chivalrous dance that recalls the battles against the Ottomans. Accommodation.
