Day 3:  HVAR
Hvar will enchant you with its easy-going atmosphere, grand palaces, churches, monasteries, cathedrals, charming narrow streets and beautiful seaside promenades.

Amazing works of art, purple lavender fields and top class wines made from the indigenous grape varieties are some of the defining characteristics of this island.

Day 4:  HVAR – KORCULA            
Today will largely be taken up by the ferry from Hvar to Korcula. On arrival in Korcula you will be transferred to your hotel and have what remains of the day at your leisure.

Explore Dubrovnik on your own or as part of the supplemental walking tours. Dubrovnik is known as the “Jewel of Croatia”. This medieval city is surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and sits atop a rocky peninsula which juts into the sparkling Adriatic. Secluded bays and coves offer the perfect getaway.

On the second day we also suggest a visit to nearby Elaphite Islands or the Island of Lokrum.
