This exclusive private Croatia tour combines the freedom of sailing by private yacht among the most interesting cities and most beautiful islands on the Dalmatian Coast with the comfort of spending nights at the top hotels in each destination.

Begin in the ancient city of Split with private touring of Diocletian's Palace, one of the most impressive Roman ruins in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With your private guide, walk through this living archaeological site, and see highlights such as the Peristyle, the Cathedral of Saint Domnius and the bell tower. Also take an excursion to nearby Trogir, a UNESCO-listed island town that preserves atmospheric Romanesque and Renaissance architecture, including the beautiful Cathedral of Saint Lawrence. Meet a local chef, and enjoy a lunch with paired wines at a beautiful countryside venue.

Next, board your private yacht and cruise the Adriatic Sea. Stop on the island of Bisevo for priority access to the magical Blue Grotto. Then, explore the secluded coves around the island of Vis, and perhaps enjoy a seafood lunch at a local restaurant. Continue to Hvar, one of the most beautiful and sunniest islands in the Adriatic Sea, and stay at the island's most luxurious hotel. During private touring, explore Hvar Town, a picturesque collection of stone buildings around a natural harbor with crystal clear water, including highlights such as the Arsenal and St. Stephen's Cathedral. Perhaps also learn about local lace-making traditions or climb to a hilltop fortress for panoramic views over the town and waterfront. Also drive into the mountains, passing through olive groves, fruit orchards, lavender fields and abandoned villages, and enjoy lunch at a charming taverna. One day, enjoy a cruise on your private yacht among the Pakleni Islands, an attractive archipelago of rocky shores and pine forests. Also enjoy ample time to relax at your resort on Hvar and browse local shops. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange additional activities such as touring the historic town of Stari Grad and tasting local wines or olive oils.

Continue by private yacht to the island of Korcula, and stay at one of the island's top hotels. Explore the narrow streets and small squares of medieval Korcula Town, which has Greek and Venetian roots. See architectural and cultural highlights such as the Marco Polo House and Cathedral of St. Mark. Also sample Grk and other Croatian wines at a local winery, and taste homemade jams, olive oils and other local products at a farmhouse.

Travel by private yacht to the island of Mljet to visit the forested hills of Mljet National Park and enjoy private kayaking in blue-water coves. Then, cruise through the rural Elaphiti Islands, stopping at small coves and beaches to swim in the Adriatic or walk through fragrant forests of pine and cypress. Continue to Dubrovnik, a beautiful historic city overlooking the Adriatic Sea. In Dubrovnik, enjoy private touring with your expert guide. One day, explore the highlights of the Old City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with medieval city walls, white limestone streets, and well-preserved Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Walk atop the ramparts, visit historic palaces and monasteries, and explore the most interesting neighborhoods and backstreets. Also browse for unique crafts, olive oil and other Croatian specialties at local shops. Another day, take an excursion to the mountainous peninsula of Peljesac to enjoy private tastings of Croatian varietals at top local wineries, and meet a local oyster farmer and sample fresh seafood. Also see the ancient salt pans and impressive city walls in the seaside village of Ston.

This tour can be further customized to include additional time in Croatia or to continue by private yacht to Montenegro.
