Highlights of Croatia 2014 – Split & Dubrovnik

Split and Dubrovnik are two of the major cities of Croatia, but they could not be more different.  On the GrapeHops Croatia, Land of Wine & History tour we have a professional guide take us on a city tour, so we can better understand the history of both places.

In Split, we all enjoyed our tour with Vjeran, who really brought Split’s Roman and medieval past to life for us.
