At a glance

Thoroughly indulge yourselves in the very best of the Adriatic on this luxurious ten-night honeymoon from Croatia’s prettiest towns and famous islands to the legendary Aman Sveti Stefan in Montenegro.

Begin in palatial Split, a remarkable mix of Roman, Gothic and Renaissance architecture, and a prime jumping off point for exploration. Be introduced to Croatia’s famous cuisine with a dinner at one of the city’s best restaurants followed by an exclusive hands-on cooking class with a wonderful local chef the next day. Head inland to discover the rushing waterfalls of Krka National Park and enjoy an unforgettable seven-course lunch at one of our favourite restaurants.

On the fourth day, hop aboard your very own private yacht for a scenic day cruising to Hvar, via Vis and the Pakleni Islands, stopping to swim and snorkel in crystal clear waters and amazing caves en route. Spend two nights in Hvar, one of the sunniest and most glamorous spots in Europe, learning about the area’s fine viniculture with a Master of Wine, and dine in an abandoned village.

Sail on to Korcula for one night, the wine continuing to flow the following day as you join a renowned Croatian winemaker for a private tour of the Pelješac Peninsula’s vineyards, before arriving in Dubrovnik. During your two night stay in this UNESCO World Heritage Site, you’ll be shown around its historic walls and Old Town and spend an evening out on a private boat trip to the Elaphititi islands and Mljet.

For the grandest of finales, venture south to Montenegro’s Budva Riviera for two nights at the iconic Aman Sveti Stefan, a rustic and luxurious hamlet that sits on its own island linked to the mainland by a narrow causeway. Relax on the beaches, treat yourselves at the spa, explore the area or simply sit back and drink in the views.

Accommodation in Split

Three nights in Split Three nights in Split

Although Croatia's second largest city, Split is often viewed as a jumping off point for adventures to the islands beyond. The peninsula on which it rests might jut out invitingly into the Adriatic, but visit vibrant Split today and it won't take you long to realise that it's very much a destination in its own right.

Split walking tour Split walking tour

Originally the palatial walled summer residence of the Emperor Diocletian, Split became a city in itself after the Roman Capital of Dalmatia, Salona, was sacked in the 7th century. Fleeing refugees were given asylum inside the two-meter thick walls of the palace and over the next 1000 years, the “city” of Split gained a reputation as a safe haven. Because of this, the city never grew beyond the same walls that exist today. As a result, the remarkable ensemble of Roman, Gothic, Romanesque, Renaissance and other architectural remains are all still visible. Today there are more than 3,000 people still living inside these ancient walls.

The actual cooking class depends on both the inspiration of the chef and the season, for the freshness of ingredients - key to the Dalmatian menu - is dependent on seasonal availability. Choose from meat, fish or vegetarian options for the preparation of 2-3 dishes, as well as a demonstration of 1-2 others, which nicely forms a fulfilling and hearty lunch for all at the end of the class, all washed down with the finest family wine. Chef Tatjana will regale you with tales of the region over your delicious lunch.

Two days in Dubrovnik Two days in Dubrovnik

Glimmering on the Adriatic coast, enchanting Dubrovnik is Croatia’s most up-market destination. Lauded by George Bernard Shaw as “Paradise on Earth", the city delights with its Mediterranean-style culture and the marbled streets of its UNESCO World Heritage old town.

Private walking tour of Dubrovnik Old Town Private walking tour of Dubrovnik Old Town

Meet your guide for a pleasant walk through Dubrovnik's Old Town. George Bernard Shaw was so enchanted by this beautiful city that he exclaimed "those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik", as well as famously describing it as "the pearl of the Adriatic". Dubrovnik's Old Town became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979, and a magnificent curtain of walls surrounds marble streets and baroque buildings that exude a pearly light in the Adriatic sun. The main pedestrian thoroughfare, Placa, is a mélange of cafés and shops with outstanding monuments at either end. Churches, monasteries, and museums ornamented with finely carved stone recall an eventful history and a vibrant artistic tradition.
