Boasting an impressive 1246 islands, islets, ridges and rocks, the Croatian Adriatic is one of the last remaining oases of astounding natural beauty and pristine turquoise waters. Its people, having lived through events we can barely imagine, have come out the other side with wisdom and a true appreciation for their land. An increasingly coveted destination among discerning travelers, Croatia waits for you with millenia of rich historical heritage, splendid architecture, vibrant cultural life and authentic local cuisine. Join us for an 11-day foray along its renowned Adriatic Coastline, basing in three splendidly diverse cities: Rovinj, Split, and Dubrovnik. We’ll also add on a short stay in Montenegro to top off the adventure!
This trip can also be run on a custom basis for specific groups on alternative dates. Please inquire for more information.
Be among the few Americans to distance yourself from Florence– but only by 40 km. Few Tuscan tours touch upon the quietly beautiful province of Arezzo. This trip to the heart of Italy highlights the food, wine, crafts and “good life” of eastern Tuscany and the neighboring region of Le Marche, on the Adriatic Sea. Good wine and top-quality food, cities filled with art and culture, overnights in historic homes, castles and palaces, and almost none of the crowds found in other regions of Italy.
The allure of Sicily lies in its contrasts. Palermo, cradle of the Mediterranean and “a city of extremes, a mixture of panache and poverty.” Along our west to east route we visit Agrigento’s magical Greek temples; top wineries; meals that are tantalizing cultural mosaics. Majestic Mt. Etna and its surrounding cities, once the center of Magna Graecia, mark the end of our 9-day adventure.
