DUBROVNIK / CRUISE AND DINNER 

Sv.Jakov /St.James/ beach in Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful beaches in this area. Most attractive pictures of the Old City were taken from there. To get there it will be a special treat. You will board a motorboat that will take you around the Old City walls to St. Jakov Beach, where you will enjoy a dinner with excellent Dalmatian wine.

When the dinner is over the boat will bring you to the Old City Port. Between there and Pile Gate where the bus will be waiting for you, you will be able to enjoy Dubrovnik by night.

BLED / TOUR OF RADOVLJICA WITH DINNER 

This evening visit the little medieval town of Radovljica and take a short walk through its old section. Then, stop at a popular and warm country inn “Kunstelj” known for its family hospitality and excellent Slovenian cuisine since 1873. Upon arrival visit their wine cellar and taste some of the  Premium Slovenian wines. Your dinner will include a selection of traditional dishes prepared according to old Slovenian recipes, while folklore performers will show you some of the local Slovenian dances.

 

VENICE / GONDOLA SERENADE  

An ideal way to enjoy this unique and magical city. A private gondola ride along the colorful Venetian canals, with serenade music in the background, during which you’ll have a chance to enjoy the Grand Canal with its magnificent and elegant palaces that witness the past splendors of the ‘Serenissima’. 

 

VENICE / PUB CRAWL “VENETIAN STYLE”

What would Venice be without a bar hop, this amazing city is already outstanding with her magnificent palaces, churches, and architectural monuments and yet we noticed that there was something missing! A great alternative to the generally slow night life of Venice, and one of the best ways to meet fellow travelers from around the world. Meandering through the labyrinth of small alleyways and campi, we visit a local bars known as bacari in the Venetian dialect. In each bar, you will be offered an “ombra”, a glass of local wine, and a small snack called cichetti.
