Luxury Yacht Charters Croatia – Itinerary from Split
Many luxury charters in Croatia start from Split or Trogir – this is a one week itinerary to discover the Croatian coast, beautiful islands and fascinating towns. Of course you can book one-way charters for example to Dubrovnik as well. And there is more than enough to see and experience as well in a two week charter.
Day 1: Split – Milna / Brač
Board your yacht or gulet in Split, largest city of Dalmatia and well known for its medieval old town.

But the major historical buildings in Split are built around 1700 years ago and show well preserved Roman architecture. Stroll around in Split, enjoy the charme of narrow streets and have a look at the most interesting sites like UNESCO protected Diocletian Palace, built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian, Diocletian’s mausoleum, Jupiter’s temple, the colonnades, early Croatian churches, Romanesque houses…

You can visit the small town of Pučisca with its beautiful harbour: it is the seat of the only stonemason school in Croatia, famous and unique, counting more visitors than some museums – old craftmanship is taught as well as modern techniques.

Leave your anchorage after lunch for Island Vis. Vis is around half way from the Italian coast, its Italian name is Lissa – and for many years foreigners where not allowed to visit the island as it was an important army base until 1989. However the isolation preserved the natural beauty, the main village named Vis as well still is very picturesque with its big natural harbour, the village of Komiza on the other side of the island, in just 10 km distance, is worth a visit as well. In Vis, there are a lot of wineries you can visit to taste the local wine.
