A rocky trail leads though a canyon to the seaside town of Bol, home to a unique pebble beach  Admire Croatia's most impressive collection of Venetian Renaissance architecture in Hvar Town Spin past ancient stone terraces topped by tiny plots of veggies, grapevines, fig trees and lavender en route to Stari Grad.

Days 5-6 Dubrovnik, an architectural masterpiece with turrets, spires and tiled roofs, is revealed on a guided walk of the 82-foot-high city walls  Stunning island views keep you pedaling along Korcula's hills past quaint villages, vineyards and almond groves Need a break?
