The towns along the coast are full of whitewashed buildings with terracotta roofs and there are lots of pretty little fishing villages just waiting to be explored. If you’re interested in historical and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, you’ll be thrilled. Fascinating history and the bustle of modern life mix effortlessly all along the coast- you’ll find pavement cafes and fashionable shops just a stone’s throw from ancient monuments here.

We stay in Tucepi, which is set in one of the most beautiful locations on the Dalmatian Riviera, with mountains behind and the Adriatic Sea and off-shore islands in front. The name Tucepi means “village by the water spring” and it’s these springs which keep Tucepi’s gardens and vineyards looking so green. The village has a long history, having been inhabited by the Romans and later Tucepi came under Turkish rule. You can visit the remains of three Turkish castles in Upper Tucepi. Other historical landmarks are the Church of the Little Lady and the Church of St Anthony, with its marble altars and stained glass windows.

Today the resort is well known for its 3km long pebble beach - the longest beach on the Riviera - its relaxed seaside atmosphere and its spectacular coastal scenery. There are several bars, restaurants and beachside cafes in the resort, together with a handful of shops.

Excursions & Itinerary

Day 1 - Fly to Croatia

Fly into Split and transfer to our hotel on the Makarska Riviera, where we stay for seven nights with dinner and breakfast included every day. You'll have time to settle in before dinner (depending on flight times) and perhaps make your first discoveries in our resort.

Days 2 to 7

During our stay we have arranged a programme of three fabulous full day excursions, all taken at a leisurely pace. There are also three days at leisure when you can relax in the comfortable surroundings of our hotel, explore our resort and its nearby attractions, or simply lie on the beach and soak up the sunshine.

Mostar and Medjugorje - Included

Our included excursion takes us firstly to historic Mostar in Bosnia & Herzegovina, which was once a frontier town of the Ottoman Empire. Mostar was named after the bridge keepers or “mostari” who guarded the Old Bridge in the Middle Ages and is situated in the Neretva river valley, surrounded by the Hum Hill and the Vele_ Mountain. The UNESCO protected Mostar Old Town with the Old Bridge is unique for its architectural diversity. Here you can admire exemplary Ottoman architecture alongside Mediterranean and Western European architecture. Stroll the Old Town’s cobbled streets, cross the historic bridge, visit the Mosque or relax in one of Mostar’s pavement cafés. Soon enough, you’ll feel transported to some other time, lulled in the tranquillity of this slow-paced, relaxed historic city. Following our visit we continue on to Medjugorje. The literal meaning of the name is “The Town Between Mountains” and today Medjugorje is a site of Catholic pilgrimage due to apparitions of the Virgin Mary to local children in 1981. According to reports, six children saw an apparition of a white form with child in her arms on the hill. The next day they returned at the same time and the vision was there again. The apparition is today known as Our Lady of Medjugorje, often called “Gospa” which is Croatian for “Lady”. Medjugorje is a favourite destination among Catholics and non-Catholics alike. Here you can visit the site of the apparitions and the Church of St James.

Split and Trogir - Included

Split, Croatia’s second largest city is famous for a single building; the UNESCO listed Emperor Diocletian’s Palace which was built in the early third century as a retirement home for the Roman emperor. Without doubt the palace is one of the greatest structures of the Roman Empire and no expense was spared in its construction, using the finest Italian marble and with columns and sphinxes from Egypt. But what makes this palace so astonishing is that in the seventh century, 400 years after it was built, the palace was crumbling and city residents began incorporating it into the city.Which is why today, the palace is made up of homes, shops and cafes within its ancient walls. This gigantic structure feels more like a fortress than a palace, and encompasses almost half of the old town and city centre of Split with some 220 buildings within the palace boundaries. We have a guided walking tour of the Palace, the Mausoleum, the Cathedral of St. Domnius and the incredible Temple of Jupiter. We then visit Trogir, which is actually on a tiny island linked to the mainland with a bridge. It’s a wonderful little town to wander around, with its many ancient buildings lining the narrow streets which lead down to the vibrant seafront with its bars and restaurants.

Krka National Park, its Waterfalls and Sibenik - Included

There’s natural beauty everywhere you look along the Dalmatian Coast but our included excursion to the Krka National Park really is awe-inspiring. This stunning natural site is one of Croatia’s most popular attractions, and is named after the Krka River which runs through the park. Our excursion takes us along the Krka Valley to the spectacular Krka Falls, an amazing spectacle of roaring cataracts and tumbling cascades. After our visit we return to the coast and visit Sibenik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Set at the mouth of the River Krka, the town experienced its heyday in the 15th century and you can see vestiges of this golden era in the Old Town. One of the most important Renaissance buildings in Croatia, St Jacob’s Cathedral, dominates the promenade here. After some free time we will return to our hotel along the beautiful coastal road, passing by picturesque villages such as Primosten and Marina and beautiful offshore islands.

Day 8 - Fly back to the UK

Today, at the appropriate time, we transfer to Split airport to take the return flight to the UK. The transfer time from Split airport to your hotel is approximately 100 minutes
