Travel Inspiration: The Dalmatian Coast & Beyond. Uncovering the Best of Croatia.
We know how often you’ve consulted your map of Europe, looking for a destination far off the beaten path. Someplace that’s wonderfully quirky and full of personality (and ancient ruins, whenever possible).
Does the exercise leave you scratching your head? If you’ve never looked beyond Italy’s boot, we strongly suggest that you start now. It’s where you’ll find a delectable assortment of untrampled towns and cities, many on the crystal blue Adriatic. Welcome to Croatia and the Dalmatian Coast.
We suggest you land in Zagreb, Croatia, then head directly to Bale, a medieval hilltop village in the Istrian peninsula. Istria, whose rich history stretches back at least to the ancient Greeks, is shared by three countries— Croatia, Slovenia, and Italy…
During our 11-day travel itinerary across Croatia, we explore Zagreb, Bale, Pula, Rovinj, Buzet, Groznjan, Plitvice Lakes National Park, Split, Pakleni Islands, Hvar Korcula or Peljesac, Mali Ston, and Dubrovnik.
