Discover the best of Croatia’s coastal towns in this 10-night, multi-centre tour which takes in everything from ancient Roman architecture to modern art installations, tranquil beaches and breathtaking natural scenery.
Rovinj, Opatija and Zadar are three of the most scenic towns on Croatia’s Adriatic coast, and this 10-night tour allows you to experience all three; with accommodation, guided tours and all transfers included.
Rovinj, Opatija and Zadar all have plenty of historic buildings, beaches, harbours and attractions to keep you busy; and with fewer tourists than Dubrovnik, you will be able to take things at your own pace and leisurely discover some of the best-kept secrets on the Adriatic coastline.
You’ll find lots of historic architecture as you wander through the towns.
Some of the highlights include the colourful villas and parklands of Opatija, the hilltop church of St. Euphemia, and the Roman arena you can visit on a day-trip to Pula.
If you want to get out of town for the day and explore the natural landscape, you are within easy travelling distance of some of Croatia’s National Parks with their breathtaking scenery and cultural significance.
Or if you prefer to take things more slowly you can relax on the beach, grab a drink from a cocktail bar, enjoy some delicious freshly-caught seafood, and have a romantic stroll along the promenade.
Rovinj is famed for its Venetian architecture, cobbled streets, and the steeple of the church of St. Euphemia which dominates the skyline.
It has an active fishing port so, unsurprisingly, there are plenty of seafood restaurants to try, as well as trendy bars.
If you like to keep active you will enjoy the hiking and cycling trails around the nearby hillsides, or scuba dive down to the wreck of the Baron Gautsch, which sunk in 1914.
Opatija is the oldest tourist destination in Croatia, where the elite of Europe would spend time in luxury villas which are still visible throughout the town.
There are plenty of beaches to explore, making Opatija the ideal destination for some relaxation.
Take a selfie next to the famous “Girl with a Seagull” statue, then walk along the promenade, stopping off at the “Walk of Fame,” just like the one in Hollywood, which honours notable names like inventor, Nikola Tesla and tennis player, Goran Ivanišević.
Zadar is a very lively and cosmopolitan town where the old meets the new.
As you walk around town you will see ancient Roman ruins, Venetian walls, and a modern “Sea Organ” which plays music using the force of the waves.
There is also a Sun Salutation light display, numerous bars, restaurants and nightclubs, as well as summer arts and music festivals, so you’ll find something there for everyone.
Note: A minimum of 2 people for each booking is required.
