One of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe, Dubrovnik stands as a jewel on the Dalmatian Coast. The striking feature of the city is the two kilometre wall that runs around its perimeter. The monuments, palaces, cathedrals and museums too have caught the attention of UNESCO, which in 1979 termed this beautiful city as a ‘World Heritage Site’. Within this ancient fortification is a labyrinth of narrow alleyways and a striking Renaissance boulevard called the Stradun – a must visit destination.
Piraeus is the seaport for Athens, the capital of Greece and one of the world’s oldest cities. In a single day in Athens, you can climb the hill of the Acropolis to wonder at the Parthenon, join the lively Athenians in Constitution Square, and find a welcoming taverna for some spirited bizouki music.
This charming, picturesque resort where Antony and Cleopatra used to vacation is best known as the port for the ancients ruins of Ephesus – one of the world’s most wondrous archaeological sites. Explorations include masterpieces such as the Great Amphitheatre, the Library of Celsus, and the temples of Athena and Apollo – all connected by marble streets rutted by the wheels of countless chariots.
