Price:From £2,895 per person (single room supplement £1,450)
The hauntingly beautiful Dalmatian coast has been occupied by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Ottomans, and for almost 700 years by the Venetians. During the trip, this incredible architectural, artistic and cultural legacy is explored in comfort aboard the beautiful, privately chartered motor-sailer, MS Barbara, which has just 18 en-suite cabins. You will cruise from Dubrovnik, whose power as a city state once rivalled Venice, to Split, enjoying numerous stunning islands en route, including Mljet, Korčula (the alleged birthplace of Marco Polo), Hvar and Trogir, a gem of a Renaissance town.
