Music tours to Croatia

Continually topping the annual poll of best holiday destination, Croatia is a melee of ancient and modern history, sapphire waters and art. 

Precariously poised between the Balkans and central Europe, this land has been passed between competing kingdoms, empires and republics for millennia leaving behind a rich cultural legacy. 

Watch history weave its story in equal parts fascinating and horrifying by visiting and performing in locations of Roman origins to the post-communist. 

The colourful town of Porec, where many of our groups stay still, keeps its historical values and maritime traditions and offers a warm welcome to musicians charming the cafe-goers and evening diners. 

Performances in historical squares and charming ports combine with excursions to suit everyone from art and culture to caves and beaches. 

A country of contrasts you can see Venetian and Viennese mansions alongside Napoleonic forts, contrasting with socialist statues. A more adventurous itinerary can include rafting, tobogganing and ziplining.

As you would expect in bordering Slovenia there is no shortage of fantastic places to be explored. Castles and museums abound  to fascinate and  educate you whilst islands beckon from the middle of vast blue lakes.

Excursions and Trips in Croatia for touring music groups

Despite its recent popularity the coast of Croatia is understated  compared with its glamorous Italian cousin. Whether your group is made up of  nature-seekers, sun-worshippers or city-explorers or you want to introduce some education and culture into your music tour, there will be sights and locations, tourist attractions and UNESCO World Heritage sites to complete your concert tour itinerary.

Wander through the ancient streets of the Old Town, be dazzled by the mosaics within the Byzantine Euphrasius Basilica or take a boat to the island of Sveti Nikola.
Sporting one of Croatia’s most popular beaches, Krk island is reachable via a toll bridge. A boat trip offers the best view of the pretty red-roofed town; a perfect host to summer tourists.
This cave is a treasure chest of stalagmites and stalactites, underworld sculptures created through time by the patient work of water. Next to the cave is a coffee shop, playground, picnic area and an animal enclosure.
Have a two country tour and enjoy an unforgettable summer’s day on 260 meters of shoreline. Waterslides, rafts, swimming pools and kayaks for the active or deckchairs and cafes for the relaxing life.
Over 20 hard-to-resist rides, 13 exhilarating water slides and many smaller slides for the calmer experience plus a 500-meter lazy river and artificial wave pools.
Why not make it a three country tour and visit the sophisticated city of Trieste? Italy's largest sea-facing piazza,Trieste brings influences from Austro-Hungarian periods, Italian, Slavic, Jewish, Germanic and even Greek culture.
