This Croatian fly-drive concentrates on some of the highlights of the Dalmatian coast, with stays in Dubrovnik and Split, as well as on the Island of Korcula, where medieval stone villages, untouched forest, hidden coves and beaches await. The interior of the island remains an unspoilt map of karst valleys and limestone ridges, olive groves and orchards. Vines of Posip grapes are grown across the island and produce arguably Croatia's most popular white wine.
