Our Adriatic Tour begins in Slovenia, past glacial lakes, lush green valleys and majestic mountain ranges, and venture through culturally fascinating small towns bustling cities and quaint hamlets brimming with historic sites of interest. We enjoy a easy-paced walking tour of the capital, Ljubljana, before heading into Croatia and exploring the Istrian Peninsula, a region rife with ancient Roman and Illyrian relics and monuments. We travel along the Dalmatian coast, taking in the centuries old cathedrals, monasteries and fortresses that dot the Croatian countryside. We venture into Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro, where we bear witness to a blend of Mediterranean and Oriental architecture in the former and the UNESCO-protected city of Kotor, as well as the Montenegrin cultural capital in the latter. After a memorable drive along the breathtaking Adriatic coast, we make for Tirana, Albania and expose ourselves to the intriguing contemporary culture of this destination that lays claim to a fabulous collection of wondrous mosques as well as innumerable archaeological artifacts that detail almost 3,000 years of history. We travel farther afield from the capital, stopping in at various towns and cities along the Albanian Riviera and beyond to appreciate Roman amphitheaters, ancient bridges, Franciscan churches and glorious panoramas.
