So today was our last full day in this beautiful place. The trip so far had exceeded our expectations, so we had already set the bar quite high for today’s trip.
Another early start saw us outside the Hilton Hotel around 7.15 am! Today’s trip was on an organised trip on a coach.
As the coach pulled up it was relatively empty so we headed towards the back.
For the duration of the trip we seemed to have the back half of the coach all to ourselves. This was fantastic, especially when we started to take in the views! Oh wow. Could Croatia get anymore beautiful?
Our first stop was a little town called Ston. Its white stone buildings greeted us. It had been badly damaged in the 1979 Earthquake and was gradually being rebuilt. The main church looked magnificent in the morning sun.
As we walked around the small town though it was sad to see so many buildings still in need of repair.
To the back of the town was a Salt museum. It wasn’t open at the time we were there but we were able to wander in and have a quick look!
Salt is still produced there so it was great to see.
After a stop in a little cafe for a cup of tea it was time to get back into the bus for our next and main stop – Korcula.
Korcula is a little island in the Adriatic Sea, which you can only reach by boat.
Now guys, when I tell you this place was stunningly beautiful, I am not kidding! The town is full of history, with Parco Polo being one of its residents. It is postcard material. On the one side of the island you can really feel the wind coming off the sea, however the opposite side is lovely and sheltered. With cafes and restaurants stretching along the sea front, you can’t ask for anything more relaxing to stop off for lunch.
We were given just under 3 hours on the Island, I think we could have stayed forever.
The return to the mainland was with deep heart! We were just so relaxed here. It was like a magical place!
To help uplift us, the trip then took us to a little winery in Peljesac Pennisala.
We were treated to a little taste of white, light red, full bodied red, cherry liquor and Grappa! I have say all but the last one were lovely, but I still prefer my slimline wine. Before heading back to Dubrovnik we were given a tour around the winery before being able to purchase some wine to take home. As we were leaving the next day, we couldn’t take up the offer sadly.
After an amazing day, it was time to head back! It had been a magical day!
The trip was around £55 per person so definitely worth it.
For our last night there was only 1 place we could possibly eat! Yes you guessed it – Restaurant 1836. This was truly a fabulous Restaurant and I would recommend it highly.
Tomorrow we head home! This holiday has been amazing and I strongly recommend you take a visit one day soon! It certainly exceeded all our expectations!
