Depart for Vis, arriving after a relaxing swim stop and lunch on board. Being closed during the time of ex-Yugoslavia, this wonderful island is still like an unspoilt and preserved oasis. Your afternoon is free to explore the town at your own pace - perhaps visit the remains of the Roman Thermal Place, the City Museum or simply take a walk enjoying the views of the beautiful Villae Rusticae situated along the waterfront. There are many excellent restaurants and taverns along the promenade where you can enjoy a glass of local wine and try some fresh seafood which the island is known for.

You may also opt to join an Optional Vis Island Excursion, that explores the unspoilt beauty of its beaches and nature, as well as its traditional architecture, finishing with dinner in Komiza, a stunning fisherman's village.

Your voyage continues to Mljet Island, famous for its stunning National Park. Here, you can explore the National Park, for example, by renting bikes and cycling or walking along the numerous paths around the lakes or in the forests. If you feel like just relaxing, you can hop onto a small boat that will take you to a tiny island on one of the lakes, where you can discover a monastery and a church of St. Mary’s built in the 12th century. Embark your ship this afternoon and replenish yourself with a lunch on board as you head towards Slano. The village of Slano is the most picturesque place on the Dubrovnik Riviera.
