Empires & the Adriatic

from $8,590* pp twin | $11,490* solo

Just think – it’s Wednesday night in northern Istria, near the Slovenian border and the tavern is busy with diners. Platters of local charcuterie arrive from the kitchen, along with big bowls of truffle-topped fuži pasta with ingredients like just-picked wild basil, seasonal asparagus, black truffles, and fresh goat cheese. Glasses are filled with wines from Croatia’s renowned Kozlović winery and outside, the moon hangs over the Mediterranean countryside, illuminating the ruins of a 13th-century castle. The place rings with the kind of raucous laughter and conversation, that accompanies the best kinds of meals.

Doesn’t it sound amazing? It’s one small part of this stunning itinerary that begins in Vienna. Discover the Baroque streetscapes and imperial palaces set alongside coffee-house culture and vibrant epicurean scenes that are so much a part of this wondrous city. Visit Bled in Slovenia with its bluish-green lake and picture postcard church on an islet and some of the highest peaks of the Julian Alps as backdrops. Beautiful cities are often described as ‘jewel boxes’, and in Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital, the name really fits. Clouds of butterflies compete with visitors as you wander the pathways of Plitviče Lakes National Park where 16 crystalline lakes tumble into each other via a series of waterfalls and cascades. It’s fascinating and sublime.

The journey then sets sail aboard your private yacht as it sails the incredible Adriatic coast. Coastlines dotted with insanely picturesque villages on small islands are your destination where each evening you go ashore for one gastronomic adventure after the other.

Back ashore – watch the play of light and shadows on the old stone buildings, tour museums stuffed full with centuries of art and artifacts, delight in climbing up and down narrow lanes then plunge into the azure sea. Welcome to Dubrovnik! For romance, ambience and living history, the Old Town of Kotor outflanks many of its neighbours for achingly atmospheric sheer beauty. The town is a medieval maze of museums, churches, cafe-strewn squares and Venetian palaces. It’s a dramatic, delightful and the perfect ending to this incredible adventure.
