Begin in historic Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where you’ll visit the beautiful, renowned Old Bridge, whose rebuilding has come to symbolize the rebirth of the Balkan States. Then see the great Old Towns of Split and Trogir, whose cobblestones, ancient buildings and narrow lanes combine the richness of the past with the vibrancy of the present.
Note that for Sea Cloud voyages that begin in Dubrovnik and end in Athens, this extension begins in Split and travels to Dubrovnik, in the reverse of the sequence shown below.

Disembark this morning and drive to historic Mostar, in Bosnia & Herzegovina. This beautiful town spans the Neretva River and is famed for its Old Bridge. This spectacularly graceful bridge stood between 1556 and
Day 2 - Dalmatian Coast and Trogir & Split
A morning drive takes us along the Dalmatian coastline. We arrive in medieval Trogir, a small island town also designated a UNESCO Site, whose main square, cathedral, streets and alleyways invite exploration. We have a typical Dalmatian lunch at a local restaurant. Continue to Split, check in to the Hotel Park, and enjoy the evening exploring Split on your own. (B,L)
Day 3 - Split
The morning is devoted to the archaeological highlights of Salona, which was capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia and the likely birthplace of the emperor Diocletian. In the afternoon, we explore Split, yet another UNESCO Site, seeing Diocletian’s Palace, which is more a small city than a single palace. It bustles with archaeological wonders from Classical Rome through the Byzantine and Venetian periods, and maintains a lively pulse of shops and street merchants today. This evening’s farewell dinner is at our hotel's excellent restaurant. (B,L,D)
