CRUISE ITINERARY

Day 1 | Split – Milna (Brač Island)
Embark on a cruise from 14:00 hrs onwards. Leave your luggage in the cabin and register at Workshop. Welcome meeting by the Cruise Director to be held afterward - safety drill, cruising schedule and all-you-need-to-know will be fully explained. Set sail to Milna, a small settlement and port on the Island of Brač. This is the largest and the most elevated Adriatic island, very inviting to the tourists for its rocky shores, scenic landscape, and perfect community of the natural beauties and Mediterranean atmosphere of the island. Brač island is world-famous for its white limestone which was used for the construction of the White House in Washington DC and of the Diocletian Palace in Split among others. The center of the stone masonry is a village of Pučišća. Stonemasonry school is still active, with a growing number of students enrolling every year. Milna is located in a safe bay, not far from Split Gate, a popular sailing route between the islands of Brač and Šolta. This is one of the biggest, and by far, the prettiest towns on the island. Dinner onboard. Overnight in Milna.

Located under the most elevated top of the Adriatic Islands, the so-called Vidova Gora, Bol is a world famous place, mostly renowned by one of the most attractive beaches on The Mediterranean – Zlatni Rat Beach (The Golden Horn). This beach changes in shape and colour depending on the wind. The sea currents affect the beach length, and so every year this beach gets even a few meters longer. The Zlatni Rat Beach is only 2 kilometers away from the town center reachable by a pleasant walk,  by sea, or even by a tourist train. Upon arrival in Bol, there will be time at leisure for a swim on or strolling the town on your own. Dinner at your own choice. Overnight in Bol.

Hvar Island is one of Croatia's top islands. The respectable Forbes magazine, in one of its editions, has listed this island as one of the most beautiful islands in the world, right along with the Caribbean islands, the Maldives, Hawaii and the Bahamas. Throughout the centuries, the island has become a favorite and treasured vacation spot among Croatians and foreign tourists alike. Hvar Island is known for lush lavender fields, olive trees, excellent wines, rugged coastline, crystal clear waters, intact nature, and excellent climate. It enjoys no fewer than 2,700+ hours of sunshine each year, making it Croatia's sunniest island. It derives its name from the Greek  Pharos (lighthouse), Romans then named it  Pharia, the Dalmatian Romans named it Fara, whereas the early Croats named it Hvar. Set sail in the afternoon to Stari Grad town, which is the island's oldest settlement. Today this is a World Heritage Site, inscribed on the UNESCO List since 2008. The historic city center and Stari Grad Plain have remained unchanged since ancient times, with the remains of prehistoric hill forts, towers and churches. During the 20th century, the Stari Grad town was visited by John F.Kennedy and his spouse Jacqueline, as well as King Edward the 8th, and his spouse Wallis Simpson. Do not miss the opportunity to do the same, now with Elite Travel. Upon arrival in Stari Grad, there will be an introduction visit to the historic center of Stari Grad. Free time. Dinner at your own choice. Overnight in Stari Grad. 
Day 3 services included in cruise package for all passengers:

Breakfast on board.

Set sail to Vis island. Lunch on board. The cruise travelers not participating in the Excel workshop are welcome to enjoy the pleasant stroll to the Stari Grad Plain, accompanied by the Cruise Director. Our sail will continue towards Vis island, once the forbidden area, during the Yugoslav times, as it served as a Yugoslav military base until 1989. Any visitors were cut off for nearly 30 years. This is a rather quiet island, off the beaten path, with many beaches and secluded bays, romantic getaway places like Komiža and Vis town. Vis beaches and bays (Srebrna, Stiniva, Stončica, Rukavica to name just a few) have been a getaway for nature lovers and fishermen from all over Croatia. This charming island has only recently opened its island doors to tourism. Find out which of the island's traditional bread piea is best-Komiška bread pie (Komiška pogača) or Viška bread pie (Viška pogača). Free time to stroll around. Dinner at leisure. We recommend visiting Viško Polje (Vis Plain) for wine and olive oil tasting, with dinner in the local dalmatian tavern included. Overnight in Vis.
Day 4 services included in cruise package for all passengers:
- breakfast
- lunch
- Stari Grad (Hvar) - A walk through the Old Town Field for travelers who do not participate in the Workshop. Since July 2008, Starogradsko polje has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The World Organization's explanation points out that the vineyards and olive groves there have remained 'virtually unchanged since the first colonization of the ancient Greeks and are a unique testimony to the geometric system of land division used in antiquity. Today, the Old Town Field represents the best-preserved ancient Greek landscape in the Mediterranean.

Day 5 | Vis Town (Vis Island) – Workshop not to be held this day
Breakfast on board.
This day is all yours. Free time to stroll around the town on your own or relax on one of the local beaches. We recommend taking a tour to Komiža, with a visit to the Blue Cave on Biševo Island included (optional tour).The small Island of Biševo, less than 5 nm from Komiža town, is home to one of the most famous caves- Blue Cave. Not only is the Blue Cave one of the unique natural phenomena in the world, but this bright and outstanding attraction on Biševo Island is destined to be the highlight of this day. By the suggestion of the Austrian artist-explorer Eugen von Ransonet, who fell in love with this cave back in 1884., the entrance large enough for a boat was formed by blasting a hole in the rock. Ever since then this cave has become accessible to underwater world lovers. The cave has 2 entrances, one smaller but large enough to take smaller boats, while the other one is much wider and is beneath the sea surface. Through this larger opening, during the sunny days and calm seas, the sun rays pass through and illuminate the cave with a luminous blue light while the objects beneath the sea surface shimmer and change colors. We also recommend taking a Military Tour, in the afternoon hours, which is a perfect tour to reveal all the attractions of this island. Off-road jeeps will take us on a memorable journey. We start the tour in Vis Town and drive to the hidden military camps and tunnels, some of them being underground and up to 2 kilometers long. We will also pass by the old British World War II airport and drive to the highest peak of the island - Hum. What an adventure this is which must be done! Dinner on board. Overnight in Vis.

Centuries have shaped the forts and palaces of Hvar and The Renaissance gave Hvar its spirit still live today. Throughout the years, Hvar has become a luxurious destination for the rich and famous, from all over the world; Prince Harry, Beyonce and Sophia Loren just to name a few!This is the town of abundant sunshine, great wines, lavender fields, excellent nightlife and wonderful local cuisine. The view from the historical fortress Fortica, overlooking the Hvar town, is outstanding.
