Explore at your own pace

Does the adventurous spirit of Marco Polo inhabit the cyclist in you? Then why not explore Croatia, where the blue, blue sea is at its most hypnotic? Mesmerized by the play of reflections between the Dalmatian Coast and the Adriatic Islands, the eyes of the traveller know no rest. Confronted with fortified towns and their glazed tiles, with the silence of isolated islands, you are paralyzed with pleasure. Frozen in marble and stone, the millennial influences seem to come back to life as you pass. Zadar and its sea organ, Split and the Palace of Diocletian, Hvar, the pearl of the Adriatic, and the green of island Korèula—all vie for your attention. Lastly, “If you want to see heaven on earth, come to Dubrovnik.” Now it’s your turn to gaze in wonder, just like Marco Polo…
