Introduction

The seven-day “Walls of Dalmatia” tour is a testimony to the continuity of life through the archaeological heritage of the area which has always been a meeting place of worlds and civilizations, migration and belief... This programme is full of cultural and natural resources of the Croatian coast, hinterland and the islands. Impressive architecture, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the local gastronomy and unspoiled nature will be your home during this tour, which begins in our sunniest place, the island of Hvar. From Stari Grad Plain or Hora and a series of forts, over the ruins of the ancient Salona and the historic centres of Split and Trogir, through the mixture of cultures in Počitelj (BiH), and to Narona and Ston in the far south and the pearl of the Adriatic - Dubrovnik. This trip is a unique blend of history, culture, landscapes, gastronomy and local people that will leave no one indifferent.
