Discover why it became one of the most desired enclaves of the monarchy of the Old Continent! This route will also lead you to captivating cities such as Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik. Famous for their legacy and history, this trio of movie cities envelop the traveller in one of the most fascinating atmospheres of the Mediterranean. Croatia is also a land of World Heritage Sites.

Important remarks

- Driving through Croatia: Motorways in Croatia have tolls, which you have to pay for each individual stretch of road. For more information, you can contact the Croatian Embassy based in your country.

- Triple rooms in Europe are generally rooms with twin beds or a double, in which a folding bed is installed to accommodate the third person. Due to the inconvenience this causes, we advise against using this option as far the possible.

- The proposed excursions and tours for each day are purely suggestions, as you can tailor the trip to suit your times, tastes and needs.

- A credit card is considered a guarantee, so sometimes you will need one for check-in at hotels.

- Hotels usually have cots available. Otherwise, babies will have to share a bed with an adult.

- To pick up your rental car, you'll need a credit (not debit) card in the name of the person who made the booking, who must also be the named driver of the vehicle.
