Though it has only recently re-emerged as an independent nation, Croatia is by no means a new country. There were settlements along the Dalmatian Coast before recorded time. When Slavic people migrated here in the 6th century, they converted to Catholicism and adopted the local Latin alphabet. The region eventually became part of the powerful Kingdom of Croatia. Medieval Dubrovnik, formerly the Republic of Ragusa, was one of several walled cities established in the 7th century to guard the coastal approaches. Its fortification was completed in the 13th century and has remained relatively unchanged. The city walls are in excellent condition and today prevent invasion by automobiles. Within the walls, the lovely sleek lines of Venetian-style buildings complement a wealth of ancient stone architecture. Nearby islands feature beautiful beaches as well as intriguing ancient ruins.
On the western coast of Montenegro, tucked away from the Adriatic Sea, is the ancient town of Kotor. Beyond its snaking stone walls, this fortified city offers a charming glimpse back in time.
Shaped like a scythe, the island of Corfu is considered one of the Mediterranean's best-kept secrets. Its lush interior is covered in cypress and olive trees while the main downtown area has elegant Venetian architecture and a serene atmosphere.
Greek for “Beautiful City,” Gallipoli is indeed lovely, with its charming old town crowded onto an island that juts out into the Ionian Sea, connected to the mainland by a 17th-century bridge. Discover fortress walls and a labyrinth of narrow lanes, ornate Baroque churches and stately palazzi, all edged by a seafront promenade. Layer by layer, the natural setting and architectural details create a lush masterpiece.
Nature and history have made Sicily a land of striking contrasts. The largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily was for centuries the center of the known world. Its unique geographic position made the island vulnerable to attacks by foreigners, while also making it a meeting place of Mediterranean civilizations, a bridge between the East and West. The picturesque little town of Taormina enjoys a beauty comprised of light, color and sea. Taormina has no middle tones, no grays and no muted shades. Lying on a short terrace of the coast and dripping off the shoulders of the enormous Mount Etna, Taormina embodies the essence of Sicily.
This largest of the Aeolian Islands off the northern coast of Sicily is a charming blend of serene island life and vast Italian history. Wander Corso Vittorio Emanuele in the city center and sample the local capers and Malvasia wine, then explore centuries past at the archaeological museum and citadel. The Marina Corta is a picturesque spot for strolls, with a quaint harbor, lively piazzas and sun-drenched avenues.
Home to sparkling bay waters, vibrantly colored flowers, and breathtaking sea caves and grottos, Capri has been enchanting travelers since Roman times, when aristocrats and emperors came to escape the summer's heat and build villas within its stunning landscape. Composed of two main villages – Capri Town, highlighted by the famous Piazzetta, a popular meeting spot, and Anacapri, located on the slopes of Mount Solaro. The spectacular Blue Grotto is renowned for its illuminated blue waters.
Considered the most photogenic town on the famed Amalfi Coast, Positano stands nearly upright on a blooming cliff, its narrow streets lined with boutiques, cafés and colorful homes leading down a steep hillside to its iconic pebbled beachfront. Easily explored by foot, so as to stroll amidst lemon trees beneath a canopy of bougainvillea to see yachts dotting the harbor below, be sure to visit the Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta with its majolica-tiled dome and Byzantine icon of the Madonna.
Venture through Civitavecchia, noted for its fine seafood and beautiful monuments. Then, travel to the Eternal City of Rome, with more than 2,500 years of history and ancient landmarks that will leave you with memories for a lifetime.
