Day 6 Sarajevo
In the company of an expert local guide, take a half-day walking tour of Sarajevo - a city in which, over a period spanning four hundred years, mosques, synagogues, orthodox and Roman Catholic churches have been built side by side. We will visit Bašcaršija, one of the best maintained old bazaars with diverse stores and restaurants, and Principe Bridge, site of the 1914 assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, which led directly to the First World War. This afternoon join a tour to the War Tunnel - a lifeline to the citizens of Sarajevo during the 1990s conflict. Dinner is included at a local restaurant this evening.
Day 7 Sarajevo - Mostar - Capljina
We travel today from Sarajevo to Capljina, visiting Mostar on the way. Mostar was the worst affected Bosnian city in the Yugoslav wars but a sightseeing tour will show the local effort that has gone into making this city beautiful once again. See the famous Old Stone Bridge, the colourful Old Bazaar and a typical Turkish house. We continue to Capljina and the Hotel Mogorjelo (4T) for dinner and overnight stay.

The afternoon is free for further exploration, stroll along the promenade or relax on one of the numerous sandy beaches. Dinner is arranged at a local restaurant.
Day 10 Becici - Kotor - Dubrovnik
We continue for Kotor this morning for a tour of this coastal city. This beautiful fortified old town, protected by UNESCO, is surrounded by stunning scenery, between steep mountains and the deepest natural ria in the Mediterranean Sea. During some free time here, it may be easy to lose yourself in the maze of lanes and hidden piazzas within the medieval walls, but its small size makes it easy to find your way again. We depart for Dubrovnik and the Hotel Valamar Argosy (4T), on the stunning coastline of Babin Kuk, Dubrovnik’s northern peninsula. Dine at the hotel tonight.

With an abundance of places to visit in Dubrovnik, the afternoon is free to explore independently. Maybe walk the city walls, experience one of the museums dedicated to defenders of Dubrovnik during the Yugoslav wars, including the powerful War Photo museum or Visia Cinema, which brings the city’s history to life through 3D films and holograms, or enjoy delicious gelato in a sun-bleached square. Dinner is arranged at a local restaurant.
