You’ll travel through the ruggedly beautiful Neretva Valley to 16th-century Mostar in Bosnia-Herzegovina on your way to Split, Croatia—ancient Spalato—to tour the Emperor Diocletian’s Palace, and see the Mausoleum, the Cathedral of St. Domnius, and the incredible Temple of Jupiter. Another highlight is a special dinner at a local restaurant in Split. Your guided vacation in Croatia and the Balkans ends in the capital city of Zagreb.
