Pretty seaside villages along the Dalmatian coast are your reward for some serious At Leisure sightseeing in the European capitals of Vienna, Ljubljana and Zagreb.
Day 1
Arrive Vienna (2 Nights)
Waltz your way through Vienna, the 'City of Music' - a fitting introduction to an unforgettable At Leisure journey through some of Europe's most enchanting landscapes. This evening, meet your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception and evening orientation drive past some of the city's dazzling sights.
Day 2
Vienna Sightseeing and At Leisure
Soak up the elegance and style of this imperial capital. Your 'Local Specialist' will share such iconic sights as the Opera House, Parliament, St. Stephen's Cathedral and the 13th-century Hofburg Palace, at the heart of Vienna. Explore the narrow lanes of 'Am Hof' before spending time at leisure immersing yourself in the Kaffee culture of the city, or perhaps join an Optional Experience to nearby Bratislava. This evening, you could choose to indulge in Vienna's intoxicating musical scene, attending a classical music concert hosted in one of the city's halls, churches or palaces.
Day 3
Vienna – Graz – Lake Bled (2 Nights)
We journey south towards the Semmering Pass, stopping in Graz to view its Old Town and symbolic clock tower on top of the Schloßberg. We continue via the Austrian Riviera, across the Slovenian border, to the rustic natural retreat of Lake Bled, set against the backdrop of forests and mountains.
Day 4
Lake Bled At Leisure
Spend the day at leisure, admiring Lake Bled's crystal clear waters. Gaze in wonder at the castle clinging dramatically to a cliff, then consider joining an Optional Experience to visit the mystical Bled Island.
Day 5
Lake Bled – Ljubljana – Plitvice Lakes
A short journey brings us to Ljubljana, where a 'Local Specialist' will share some of the Slovenian capital's most iconic sights, including the Cathedral, Three Bridges Square and Castle. Travel south across the Croatian border to the exquisite National Park of Plitvice, where you will join a 'Local Specialist' for a guided walking tour along the wooden pathways suspended over pristine natural landscapes. Admire the cascade of spectacular waterfalls and crystal clear waters reflecting green, grey and blue against the lush landscapes.
Day 6
Plitvice Lakes – Split – Hvar Island (3 Nights)
Today, we travel to Croatia's sun-kissed Dalmatian coast to the city of Split. Here, we'll meet our 'Local Specialist' and 'Dive Into Culture' on a tour of the UNESCO-listed Diocletian's Palace, a veritable fortress built as the would-be retreat for the 4th-century Roman Emperor after which it is named. View the Cathedral and Baptistery of Split, once the Temple of Jupiter, before travelling to the glamorous island of Hvar for a relaxing three-night stay.
Day 7
Hvar Sightseeing
Set your watch to island time and enjoy a leisurely guided walking tour with a 'Local Specialist' to Hvar's Old Town. See the 16th-century Cathedral and loggia built by famed Venetian architect, Sanmicheli. Explore the peace of a village where time has stood still and 'Connect With Locals', savouring a delicious 'Be My Guest' lunch cooked in a traditional style under an iron bell. Savour the heavenly flavours of locally produced ingredients against the backdrop of the vivid-blue Adriatic before returning to Hvar for an evening at leisure.
Day 8
Hvar At Leisure
Restore your spirit, relaxing in beautiful surrounds on this full free day to do as you wish. Explore the gorgeous rocky coastline on foot or join an Optional Experience taking in the island's sights and tastes, with a stop at one of Europe's oldest settlements, Stari Grad.
Day 9
Hvar Island – Dubrovnik (3 Nights)
Journey south along the picture-perfect Dalmatian coast, past seaside villages to the medieval city of Dubrovnik - its terracotta rooftops, fortified walls and white limestone façades almost tumble into the waters of the Adriatic.
Day 10
Dubrovnik Sightseeing and At Leisure
Wander within the solid city walls, unveiling the labyrinthine lanes of this stunning medieval city, joining your Local Specialist for a Small Group Sightseeing walking tour of the main sights. Admire the Rector's Palace, Onofrio's Fountain and the Franciscan and Dominican monasteries, before spending time on your own, perhaps soaking up intoxicating seafood flavours at a seaside restaurant or enjoying the lively atmosphere of a local market. This evening, we enjoy a Regional Dinner at a local restaurant.
Day 11
Dubrovnik At Leisure or Montenegro Optional Experience
Spend the day on your terms exploring the Pearl of the Adriatic. Tread in the footsteps of Lord Byron and George Bernard Shaw, who were intoxicated by the allure of Dubrovnik. Climb the medieval ramparts, imagining a time when Dubrovnik fought for its freedom against Ottoman attacks, or consider joining an Optional Experience to Montenegro to see the incredible Bay of Kotor.
Day 12
Dubrovnik – Zagreb (2 Nights)
We leave the splendour of Dubrovnik behind as we head north to the Croatian capital of Zagreb, our home for the next two nights. This evening we dine at our hotel.

Zagreb Sightseeing and At Leisure
Join a 'Local Specialist' this morning for an exploration of the Upper and Lower Towns of this traditional medieval city. See the majestic Cathedral, the Opera House and St. Mark's Church, with its colourfully tiled roof.
