Day 4
Krka Waterfalls & Sibenik

Today it’s wine and waterfalls! Cruise towards Skradin then board the coach. First stop is the famous Bibich winery for wine tasting and light tapas lunch. Back in Skradin, walk through the Krka Waterfalls National Park and visit “Skradinski Buk.” Jaw droppingly beautiful, this is the most popular part of the waterfall area. There are 17 waterfalls, with cascades up to 300 feet wide, and the Krka river tumbles 150 feet down. A never-to-forget experience is swimming under the falls so bring your swimming things and enjoy the crystal clear fresh water. Šibenik is almost in the very central part of Croatia’s Adriatic coast and this afternoon’s destination. Explore the glorious old town, the cultural monuments and possibly the most famous one here: the UNESCO listed Cathedral of St James. Wander and discover the historic core and waterfront. Some good boutique shopping too. Dinner on board. Overnight in Šibenik.

Day 5
Zadar

After breakfast, leave for Zadar, the oldest university town in Croatia, famous for its rich historical heritage of world importance. At every turn history is here: the Roman Forum from the 1st Century and St Donat church from the 9th century, the most famous medieval basilica and the symbol of the city. The mighty city walls encase the old town and there is a representative city gate from the 16th century. Among many museums, the museum of ancient glass stands out together with over 30 churches and majestic family palaces and villas. On the waterfront, the award-winning Sea Organ and “Greeting to the Sun” light installations show the funky side of Zadar. Overnight in Zadar.

Day 6
Rab

Cruise towards Rab, known as the “island of love,” with an old town of the same name. Enjoy a guided city tour including the medieval walls, the famous four towers (and maybe climb one of them later!) together with palaces, churches and squares. There’s a slight Montmartre feel with many artists painting and exhibiting out on the streets. Legend has it that local nuns created a special Rab cake for a visiting Pope and we will sample this after the tour. The recipe, however, remains forever secret. Overnight in Rab.
