Morning flight to Dubrovnik and transfer to the
Hotel Excelsior for a 4-night stay. The recently
renovated hotel is one of the city’s most
prestigious, spanning a historic villa and a late
20th-century building, offering views across
the Adriatic to the old town. The views can be
enjoyed from one of the large terraces or from
any of the upgraded room categories (please
enquire for prices). (N)
Day at leisure to explore Dubrovnik, the jewel
in the crown of Croatia’s Dalmatian coast.
A museum in its own right, the old town is
a twisting maze of narrow terraced allies
encircled by colossal fortifications. Spend the
day exploring the city’s highlights including
Sponza Palace and Stradun, the city’s main
street. The old town can get very busy during
the summer months. (B)
A popular excursion from Dubrovnik is to
the Bosnian town of Mostar. Devastated by
the war with Yugoslavia and Croatia in the
1990s, this enchanting town has now risen
from the ashes. The 16th-century bridge is its
centrepiece; watch divers leap 29 metres into
the Neretva river below. Other day trip options include the nearby Elaphite Islands or Cavtat, a
quiet town along the coast. (B)
This morning travel to Kotor in Montenegro,
staying for 4 nights at the Forza Mare, an
intimate boutique hotel on the water’s edge. (B)
Day at leisure in Kotor to explore the historic
town, set on the shores of Europe’s most
southern fjord. Founded in the fifth century,
Kotor played a key role in the history and
development of the region, and was under
Venetian rule from 1420 to 1797. Be sure to
visit Trg od Oružja (Arms Square) and the
Orthodox church. (B)
Two further days to explore the region or relax
at the hotel. The property has a small spa and
private access to a pebble beach. Alternatively,
there is the opportunity to explore nearby
Budva, the largest town on coast, or venture
into the mountainous interior, ideal for hiking
and rafting. (B)
