South Dalmatia - 4 days
Dubrovnik, Lokrum, Ston
Essence of the trip
Fans of fantasy and history alike will enjoy discovering Dubrovnik, the Pearl of the Adriatic, and its relationship to the award-winning HBO series, Game of Thrones. If the UNESCO World Heritage City of Dubrovnik with its majestic ancient rampant walls doesn't capture your imagination, then the thrill of recognising the infamous fictional capital of King's Landing certainly will.
This trip will give you
- Guided tours around the beautifully preserved medieval city of Dubrovnik and the filming locations for George R R Martin's spellbinding fantasy series, Game of Thrones
- An opportunity to sail around the exceptional Elaphiti islands, an archipelago situated northwest of Dubrovnik, with a private skipper guiding you to its hidden coves, secret sandy beaches
- Two days to spend at your own leisure. Perhaps an indulgent pampering session at a spa could round off your Croatian getaway in style?
In just over two hours from the UK and with four nights spare, the divine interiors of Pucic Palace and the cultural delights of Dubrovnik are at your feet. In between private guided tours of the city, you'll take in the awe-inspiring archipelago of the Elafiti Islands with its abundant greenery, secret coves and sandy beaches. There will also be plenty of time to discover the city at your own pace, soak up the sunshine and dip into the always-welcoming Mediterranean Sea.
Split your time between admiring the Rector's Palace and the Franciscan Monastery, with the panoramic views from Mount Srd. The city's charming terracotta rooftops and nearby island gems are simply breathtaking from 450 metres above sea level. Then make time to stroll around the lush gardens of Trsteno Arboretum in true Sansa Stark style, or revisit the Battle of Blackwater Bay by heading to Lovrijenac Fortress. Alternating between Dubrovnik's rich history and that of the fantastical War of the Five Kings couldn't make for a more exciting way to while a long weekend away.
