  • From the cobbled streets of Split to the pretty ports of Vis, Hvar and Bol, Nicola Moyne discovers the Adriatic's most photogenic hotspots

    Sailing around Croatia’s rugged coastline with The Yacht Week isn’t all prosecco and partying. From Split’s beautiful mishmash of Roman, Venetian and Napoleon architecture, mast-clicking riva and Diocletian’s Palace, to Trogir’s eclectic labyrinth of independent boutiques selling hand-carved olive wood wares and printed silk scarves, there’s a plethora of pretty port towns to lose yourself in and soak up the local culture.

    Wander the cobbled streets of Bol for some of the freshest food-market finds and deliciously sweet figs, or hit the rustic beauty of Vis to devour your body weight in gelato. Either way, don’t forget your camera – The Yacht Week ensures you’ll stop at some of Croatia’s most scenic sun-drenched hotspots.

    Prices start from about £500 per person for a 7-night stay and skipper. Bookings for 2019 open on 24 October. To find out more or to book, visit TheYachtWeek.com.
