Discover Korcula island & Peljesac

Discover Korcula island & Peljesac

€ 899,00 / per person

Narrow roads lead through centuries-old olive trees, vineyards and through fragrant forests. Here and there we see Dalmatian villages with terracotta-colored roofs, romantic bays with herlder blue water and beautiful beaches. The island of Korcula was once part of the Venetian Republic and was called Curzola. The atmosphere that hangs on the island is still Italian. Also the ice cream and cappuccino are not inferior to the Italian variants. It is the ingredients that ensure that Korcula radiates the carefree holiday feeling and we will experience it!

Day 1 - Arrival

From Rotterdam you fly with Transavia from Rotterdam to Dubrovnik. After arrival the transfer to our hotel in Orebic follows. After arriving at the hotel there is time to get to know each other a little better.

Day 2 - Loviste

The morning is at your leisure, then we take a half-day excursion to Orebic and Loviste. Orebic used to be the center of shipping and a beloved residence of many sea captains and ship owners. They had the most beautiful villas built that give the town a charming appearance. Just outside Orebic, on a hilltop lies the 15th-century Franciscan monastery 'Gospa od Angela', which we are honoring with a visit. The view alone, on the coast and the island of Korcula, is more than worth a visit. The chapel church of the monastery was established to protect the sailors from shipping disasters. Our voyage of discovery on the Peljesac peninsula continues further, stopping along the way. We end the day with a look in the fishing village of Loviste.

Day 3 - Ston

At the start of the Peljesac peninsula is the historic town of Ston. Although few have ever heard of this city, the city has the longest wall in Europe, built in 1333 with a length of no less than 5.5 km. And we are going to 'climb' this wall today. After this walk there is some free time in the town of Ston. The town is full of terraces and restaurants where you can order the tastiest oyster and mussel dishes. At the end of the afternoon we drive back to our hotel in Orebic, on the way we stop at a wine cellar where you can taste various wines produced in this region.

Day 4 - Korcula

After breakfast we board the ferry for the crossing from Orebic to the island of Korcula. Arriving on the island, a city tour through the walled-in Korcula city is on the program, with an English-speaking guide telling us all the 'ins & outs'. We follow the ancient traces of Marco Polo, who was supposed to be born here. A jumble of streets and squares brings us to his birth house, among other things. Of course we also do not skip the imposing St. Mark's Cathedral. After we have explored the city, there is still some free time left. Within the city walls there are numerous terraces where you can enjoy local specialties in a relaxing Mediterranean atmosphere.

Day 5 - Day off or optional excursion to Dubrovnik

In consultation with the group, an optional excursion to Dubrovnik is being organized today. Under the guidance of a Dutch-speaking guide, we view the highlights of the city. Dubrovnik, also known as the 'pearl of the Adriatic', was in its heyday one of the most powerful cities in this part of Europe, with a fleet that could compete with that of Genoa and Venice. The city is unique with its huge fortress walls with bastions, its stairways and the old center with countless monuments. The entire historic center is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Minimum participants: 5. Costs € 45,00 per person.
6

Day 6 - Cooking class

After breakfast we get ready for a fun cooking class. We learn how to make macaroni with the help of 'sticks'. The recipe is more than 400 years old, which is still used by the locals. At the end of the workshop we will eat our homemade 'Zrnovski Makaruni' and think about what we will do the rest of the day, laze by the beach or actively go out?
7

Day 7 - Vela Luka → Split

We say goodbye to our hotel and drive to the other side of the island to make the crossing from Vela Luka to Split. Given the arrival time in Split, we drive straight to our hotel in Seget Donji. After arrival at our hotel we enjoy our last evening at the hotel. The hotel is located directly on the sea and is surrounded by majestic pine trees.
8

Day 8 - Trogir & departure

Our last day has unfortunately arrived, but before we go to the airport of Split, visit the ancient harbor town of Trogir. This picturesque town has a very rich history and is more than 2000 years old, so you will not get bored. Trogir has had so many cultures: the Romans, Greeks, Venetians and even French have all conquered this town. This has created an interesting mix of cultures that have all left their mark here.
Itinerary subject to change. It is possible that we have to adjust the program due to weather conditions or local events.
