DAY 2 Dubrovnik - Korcula
Begin the day with an optional guided walking tour of the great fortified city of Dubrovnik. Behold the many mesmerising alleyways, ancient palaces, medieval monasteries and bustling open squares, all encased within the city walls of the UNESCO protected Old Town. In the afternoon depart for the island of Korcula with a swim stop at the Elaphite Islands en-route.
