Day 6: SPLIT & TROGIR Sightseeing (B, L)
Today’s Split is the handiwork of seventeen centuries of men and women building and remodeling, adding, tearing down, and touching up, so that 18th-century houses intersect with ancient Roman walls and 4th-century chambers house 20th-century apartments. At the core of this sprawling cityscape is the palace Emperor Diocletian built for his golden years at the turn of the fourth century. Today's lunch will be the traditional Dalmatian dish – Pašticada which we will taste at the Tragos restaurant in Trogir. The town of Trogir, a UNESCO site, has a fascinating 2300 years of continuous urban tradition. Its rich culture was created under the influence of old Greeks, Romans, and Venetians. Trogir has a high concentration of palaces, churches, and towers, as well as fortresses on a small island. Sometimes referred to as the floating museum town.

Day 7: SPLIT – STON – DUBROVNIK (B, T, D)
On our way to Dubrovnik, we will stop near the town of Ston, where we visit a local winery and taste the famous “Plavac Mali” wine, a very close relative to the Zinfandel. In this winery the traditional winemaking business has been passed on for generations, offering a unique story everyone wants to hear. The wine tasting includes a wine presentation on all the specifics of the wine-making process, wine tasting, and snack. Arrival in Dubrovnik and overnight. (driving time 5 hours).

Day 8: DUBROVNIK (B)
Completed in the thirteen century, the old city Dubrovnik has remained unchanged since. Its medieval ramparts encircle the city which pedestrians can enter through one of two gates - either way, they cross a stone bridge under the watchful gaze of the city’s patron Saint Blaise (Vlaho), to find themselves joining the evening promenade down the broad, stone-paved avenue known as Stradun. After the sightseeing free time to explore the city on your own. Overnight in Dubrovnik.
