Enjoy a swim in lakes or cycling around them. After lunch, we continue towards Korcula, the birthplace of famous explorer and adventurer Marco Polo.

Stunning Vis and optional Blue Cave visit

Our next destination is the island of Vis, which was because of its unique geographical position, a strategic harbor for the Navy and was closed to the public until recently. Because of this isolation, Vis has a special charm, ‘the Mediterranean as it once was’ which makes it a really interesting place to see. We overnight in the town of Vis, situated on the northern side of the island, developed near the remains of the ancient Issa, the first urban center in Croatia. If interested, visit the remains of the Roman Thermal Place, City Museum or simply take a walk and enjoy the views of the beautiful Roman styled villas along the waterfront.
