Southern Dalmatia possesses one of Europe’s most dramatic shorelines, as the stark, gray wall of the coastal mountains sweeps down towards a lush seaboard dotted with palm trees and olive plantations. It is also home to antiquated villages and harsh natural wilderness, which can often be found just a few minutes walk uphill from the coastal strip.

Day 1Arrival to Old City of Dubrovnik

The undeniable charm and beauty, that the city of Dubrovnik offers, resides in its long and rich history. The city achieved a high level of development and wealth, particularly during the 15th and 16th centuries in which many beautiful Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains were built, and preserved until today. From 1979 the Old City of Dubrovnik is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will have a guided tour of the city and the rest of the day will be free of activities.

Day 2Free Day in Dubrovnik

You will have a day free of activities, so you can have time to explore the area on your own or just relax and enjoy.

Day 3Pelješac peninsula

In the early morning hours, you will head to one of the oldest arboretums in the world. The noble family Gučetić-Gozze took the initiative to ask captains to bring back seeds and plants when returning from their journeys. The arboretum was officially found- ed in 1498, and it reserves a very special place among the old Dalmatian and Mediterranean parks due to its five-century continuous development.

After Trsteno you will head to Ston. Built in the 14th century, the Ston city walls are the second longest wall fortification system in the world after the Great Wall of China. With a length of 5.5km, their purpose was linking Ston with Mali Ston and protecting the salt works, which were the source of wealth for the Republic of Dubrovnik. The very same saltpans are active today and still provide first class salt. Lunch will be organized in one of the local restaurants.

After the lunch, you will head to a small bay Blazevo located close to Ston. There, you will find one of the tastiest oysters in the world, first class fish, bottarga (also called “Caviar of the South”) and a seabed sparkling wine cellar. Your host will be awaiting you with seafood specialties and a glass of wine. After a few words about the fish farm, the tour will move on to the boat. You will have the chance to pick your own oysters and learn about seafood and fish species living in the area.

In the afternoon hours, you will be transferred to “Grgurević“ vineyards. Centuries of winemaking on the peninsula resulted in some of the best wines in the world. You will enjoy a wine tasting with local delicacies served by the owner himself. He will give you an insight on his way of life and explain his winemaking philosophy. After the wine-tasting, you will head back to Orebic.

Day 4Orebić and Korčula

Orebić is situated in the western part of the Pelješac peninsula, facing Korčula. This charming sunny town was home to many captains and sailors from the Dubrovnik region. Orebić was home to more than 20 captains who were considered as “top of the class” captains in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It was one of the most important towns in the Dubrovnik Republic and nowadays it represents the central tourist spot on Pelješac. In the morning hours, you will have a guided tour of the city after which you will be transported to the island of Korcula.

According to the legend, Trojan hero Antenor settled on the Korčula Island in the 12th century BC and founded the first settlements. After a guided walking tour of this ancient city, that includes visits to two museums, you will head to the house of the famous medieval merchant Marco Polo. Korčula is also well known for its white wine, traditional sword dance “Moreška” and traditional vocal singing called “klape” protected by the UNESCO heritage list. Lunch will be served in one of the local restaurants.

Day 6Wine tasting on Pelješac peninsula

In the afternoon hours you will visit Potomje, a place renowned for its vineyards, lies on the southeast part of the Pelješac peninsula.
