Wander cobbled streets, soak up the sunshine and relax in vibrant town squares in Croatia's most fascinating ancient cities

Sailing away from the beguiling city of Venice, we'll voyage towards Croatia and make our first stop in the city of Rovinj - a beautiful fishing port on the Istrian Peninsula. Explore its cobblestone streets and pretty ancient churches, or head along the coast to the forested natural park where secluded beaches and relaxed bars hide away in coves.

Our next stop is Pula, a city that has been conquered by Romans, Venetians and the Germanic Ostrogoths. Seek out the vast amphitheatre or head out to the beaches on the Verudela Peninsula nearby.

We'll stop at Losinj - a 31km-long island with historic towns and thick pine forests - where over 1100 plant species thrive inland and dolphins can often be spotted in the surrounding waters. Next up is Zadar, where we'll overnight to allow time for drinking refreshing glasses of malvasia and listening to the mellifluous Sea Organ - a network of pipes built into the land that creates a hypnotic tune as the waves crash in and push air through.

You'll have the chance to explore the Kornati Islands, where 140-isles make up a protected national park with gorgeous reefs and bright white rock formations on land, and then visit Vis - the most remote of Croatia's islands. Our voyage ends in Split, a glamorous city where you can discover a Roman palace and cool street cafes in the Old Town.

Powered by the prevailing winds for at least 70 per cent of the time, Golden Horizon has sustainability at her heart as well as 140 all sea-view cabins and an elegant two-tier dining room. Newly built, this classical ship is the world's largest square-rigged sailing vessel, combining traditional style with exceptional levels of service and comfort. It's the ideal ship on which to discover the Adriatic.
