1 Arrive Vienna (2 Nights)
Waltz your way through Vienna, the City of Music - a fitting introduction to an unforgettable At Leisure journey through some of Europe's most enchanting landscapes. This evening, meet your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception and evening orientation drive past some of the city's dazzling sights. (WR) Stay: Hilton Danube Waterfront
2 Vienna Sightseeing And At Leisure
Soak up the elegance and style of this imperial capital. Your Local Specialist will share such iconic sights as the Opera House, Parliament, St. Stephen's Cathedral and the 13th-century Hofburg Palace, at the heart of Vienna. Explore the narrow lanes of 'Am Hof' before spending time at leisure immersing yourself in the Kaffee culture of the city, or perhaps join an Optional Experience to nearby Bratislava. This evening, you could choose to indulge in Vienna's intoxicating musical scene, attending a classical music concert hosted in one of the city's halls, churches or palaces. (BB)
3 Vienna - Graz - Lake Bled (2 Nights)
We journey south towards the Semmering Pass, stopping in Graz to view its Old Town and symbolic clock tower on top of the Schloßberg. We continue via the Austrian Riviera, across the Slovenian border, to the rustic natural retreat of Lake Bled, set against the backdrop of forests and mountains. (BB/D) Stay: Kompas
4 Lake Bled At Leisure
Spend the day at leisure, admiring Lake Bled's crystal clear waters. Gaze in wonder at the castle clinging dramatically to a cliff, then consider joining an Optional Experience to Slovenia's largest glacier lake, ascending Mt. Vogel by cable car for inspiring views. (BB)
5 Lake Bled - Ljubljana - Plitvice Lakes
A short journey brings us to Ljubljana, where a Local Specialist will share some of the Slovenian capital's most iconic sights, including the Opera House, Cathedral, National Museum, Three Bridges Square and Castle. Travel south across the Croatian border to the exquisite National Park of Plitvice, where you will join a Local Specialist for a guided walking tour along the wooden pathways suspended over pristine natural landscapes. Admire the cascade of spectacular waterfalls and crystal clear waters reflecting green, grey and blue against the lush landscapes. (BB/D) Stay: Jezero
6 Plitvice Lakes - Split - Hvar Island (3 Nights)
Today, we travel to Croatia's sun-kissed Dalmatian coast to the city of Split. Here, we'll meet our Local Specialist for a tour of the UNESCO-listed Diocletian's Palace, a veritable fortress built as the would-be retreat for the 4th-century Roman Emperor after which it is named. View the Cathedral and Baptistery of Split, once the Temple of Jupiter, before travelling to the glamorous island of Hvar for a relaxing three-night stay. (BB/D) Stay: Amfora
7 Hvar Sightseeing
Set your watch to island time and enjoy a leisurely guided walking tour with a Local Specialist to Hvar's Old Town. See the 16th-century Cathedral and loggia built by famed Venetian architect Sanmicheli. Explore the peace of a village where time has stood still and 'Connect With Locals', savouring a delicious Be My Guest lunch cooked in a traditional style under a clay bell. Savour the heavenly flavours of locally produced ingredients against the backdrop of the vivid-blue Adriatic before returning to Hvar for an evening at leisure. (BB/L)
8 Hvar At Leisure
Restore your spirit, relaxing in beautiful surrounds on this full free day to do as you wish. Explore the gorgeous rocky coastline on foot or join an Optional Experience to enjoy the sights and tastes of Hvar. (BB)
9 Hvar Island - Dubrovnik (3 Nights)
Journey south along the picture-perfect Dalmatian coast, past seaside villages to the ancient city of Dubrovnik - its terracotta rooftops, fortified walls and white marble façades almost tumble into the waters of the Adriatic. (BB) Stay: Ariston
10 Dubrovnik Sightseeing And At Leisure
Wander along the solid city walls, marble streets and labyrinthine lanes of this stunning medieval city, joining your Local Specialist for a Small Group Sightseeing walking tour of the main sights. Admire the Rector's Palace, Onofrio's Fountain and the Franciscan and Dominican monasteries, before spending time on your own, perhaps soaking up intoxicating seafood flavours at a seaside restaurant or enjoying the lively atmosphere of a local market. This evening, we enjoy a Regional Meal at a local restaurant. (BB/RM)
11 Dubrovnik At Leisure Or Montenegro Optional Experience
Spend the day on your terms exploring the Pearl of the Adriatic. Tread in the footsteps of Lord Byron and George Bernard Shaw, who were intoxicated by the allure of Dubrovnik. Climb the medieval ramparts, imagining a time when Dubrovnik fought for its freedom against Ottoman attacks, or consider joining an Optional Experience to Montenegro to see the incredible Bay of Kotor. (BB)
12 Dubrovnik - Zagreb (2 Nights)
We leave the splendour of Dubrovnik behind as we head north to the Croatian capital of Zagreb, our home for the next two nights. This evening we dine at our hotel. (BB/D) Stay: Westin
13 Zagreb Sightseeing And At Leisure
Join a Local Specialist this morning for an exploration of the upper and lower towns of this traditional medieval city. See the majestic Cathedral, the Opera House and St. Mark's Church, with its colourfully tiled roof. The afternoon is yours to stroll through the Old Town, twirling your Šestine umbrella as you ramble along its hidden lanes, or consider an Optional Experience to Kumrovec into the surrounding countryside. This evening, we enjoy a Farewell Dinner celebration with our newfound friends and Travel Director. (BB/FD)

“Would not change a thing!”
- WA, Australia Aug 2015 3 Helpful Votes

Loved this tour. Would not change a thing! The accommodation was very comfortable as was the coach. Tour guide was excellent and interacted well with everyone. I particularly liked the pace of this tour and option to do the many optional extras to simply chill out before the next experience.
