Tentative Itinerary

Mar 7, Overnight FlightDepart from the USA.
Mar 8, DubrovnikArrive in Dubrovnik, meet your ACIS Tour Manager and transfer to your hotel. Acquaint yourself with the Pearl of the Adriatic during an orientation tour later today.
Mar 9, DubrovnikGeorge Bernard Shaw once said that “those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik.” This morning’s guided sightseeing tour shows you highlights of the old town—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—such as the ancient city walls, the cathedral and the Rector’s Palace as well as the harbor. The afternoon is free for you to explore more of Dubrovnik at your own pace. If you have time, perhaps ascend to the summit of Mount Srd by cable car for views you won’t soon forget!
Mar 10, DubrovnikToday enjoy a full day excursion to Montenegro. Nestled between the Adriatic’s Gulf of Kotor and surrounding mountains, the medieval-walled old city of Kotor is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the narrow streets, cathedrals and historic squares that served as important commercial and artistic centers in the Middle Ages. Then return to Dubrovnik.
Mar 11, SplitDepart Dubrovnik and enjoy marvelous views of the Adriatic as you drive up the Dalmatian coast to Split. This city’s engaging blend of ancient and modern feels simultaneously preserved and alive, with something to see around every corner.
Mar 12, SplitDiscover the city of Split on a guided sightseeing tour. You’ll see the highlights of the old town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, including the relics of Diocletian’s Palace, a palace and fort built by the retired Roman emperor in the 4th century around which the city itself has grown. The afternoon is yours to explore more at your own pace.
Mar 13, ZagrebDepart Split this morning and journey inland to the spectacular Plitvice Lakes National Park, one of the most beautiful natural sights in Europe. The park’s 16 terraced lakes cascade into each other through a series of waterfalls formed as travertine deposits have created natural dams over time. Wooden footbridges and pathways let you discover the crystal-clear turquoise waters of this natural wonder without disturbing the unique geology. Continue to Croatia’s capital and largest city, Zagreb, for the evening.
Mar 14, LjubljanaToday’s sightseeing tour of Zagreb with a local guide shows you highlights of both Gornji grad, (Upper Town) and Donji grad (Lower Town). Marvel at coat of arms tiled onto the colorful roof of St. Mark’s Church, gaze sky-high at the twin neo-Gothic spires of Zagreb Cathedral, feel the lively buzz of Dolac Market and see the statue of Ban Jelacic in his namesake square. Then depart for Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia and a multicultural city noted for its many fine museums and medieval architecture.
Mar 15, LjubljanaBegin the day with guided sightseeing of Ljubljana’s most famous sights. Discover the Old Square before crossing the Dragon Bridge on the way to Market Square. See the town’s most recognizable sights, the Triple Bridge, City Hall Square and the Bishop’s Palace, before ending your tour with a stroll along the river. Then you’ll travel to the jaw-dropping Postojna Cave, for an informative, exploratory experience where a mini-train transports you through a complex system of passages and dramatically lit chambers, formed over the eons by the Pivka River. Return to Ljubljana for the evening.
Mar 16, DepartureDepart for the USA.
