No longer seen as an upstart sibling to neighboring Italy, Croatia is experiencing a renaissance in its own right, thanks to a spectacular coastline reminiscent of the French Riviera. Blend in with the A-listers on this luxe nine-night package for US$1599 per person, including taxes.
At nearly half the price of competing packages, this escorted package features Bled Castle, a medieval fortress set against an Alpine backdrop; the walled city of Dubrovnik; and plenty of free time to sample outdoor cafes and open-air markets along the way.
This deal from Gate 1 Travel includes:
Guests spend three nights in Dubrovnik; two nights each in Bled and Opatija, considered the Nice of the Adriatic; and one night each in ancient Split and hilltop Zagreb, which overlooks the Sava River.
This trip is priced for departures from New York; all major U.S. gateways are available.
Depart: Nov. 3, 10, 14, 17, 24; Feb. 6; March 2; discounted dates available through May 2014
Note: Reservations will require a deposit to secure airfare. Prices are in U.S. dollars.
