In the morning we set sail towards the island of Vis. With lunch on board and a swim stop along the way, we arrive

Vis was once an important Yugoslav naval base and was closed to the public for years. Due to this isolation, Vis has a
unique charm that feels like you’re stepping into a faraway time, making it one of our favorite stops. Here, you are in for a real treat with an optional visit a unique winery with a fascinating story and location. Their wines are top quality and some of
the best in Croatia.
In town, feel free to explore Vis at your leisure. We recommend visiting the Archaeological Museum located in the
old Austrian fort Gospina Batarija (Batteria della Madonna). Dinner on your own in one of Vis Town’s charming
restaurants.

island. Hvar is known as a “yachter’s paradise”. Arrive in the afternoon and explore the town’s historical center
which includes the Renaissance cathedral with its original tower, and the oldest community theatre in Europe
founded in the 17th century. Hike up to the Spanish Fortress which overlooks the harbor for lovely scenic views of
the yacht-filled marina and the Pakleni islands. In the evening, Hvar offers many great restaurants, cafes, and bars
with many open late into the night.
