Join alumni and friends for a voyage to Croatia and Montenegro that combines the cultural and the culinary. Explore great cities such as Dubrovnik, Croatia, where there’s an architectural masterpiece on every street corner. Dine in local restaurants and visit vineyards to savor the food and wine that Croatians love. Just as gourmets pair the right wine with each course of a meal, we’ve paired wonderful cultural sites with the great culinary regions of Croatia. Guiding us on this adventure is Chef Giuliano Hazan ’81. He will also lead a shipboard cooking demonstration and accompany the group through bountiful local markets, as we sample wines in the villages where grapes are grown and sample delicacies in local restaurants. Besides the gastronomy, we’ll enjoy expert speakers on the Adriatic coast. Carol Nackenoff will enrich our understanding of these new democracies.
