Highlights from your trip

Andalucia travel guide

4.7
Historic Sites · Castles · Landmarks
A region of geographic contrasts, Andalucía is home to ancient cities, sun-warmed beaches, deserts, and mountains. Spanning almost the entire southern section of Spain, it boasts a rich Moorish heritage, with numerous outstanding examples of Islamic architecture. Today, it’s a popular vacation destination for European tourists drawn to the modern resorts of Costa del Sol, but these beachside hotel complexes don’t overshadow Andalucía’s fascinating history. Numerous secluded corners of the coast remain unblemished by crowds. Farther inland, in cozy villages frozen in time, the local bar is the center of all activity, and farmers are the unofficial tour guides.

French Riviera - Cote d'Azur travel guide

4.2
Landmarks · Beaches · Historic Sites
On the Mediterranean Sea coast, the French Riviera-Côte d'Azur has the glitz and glamour rivaled by few places on earth. It is a modern resort area with luxury shopping, seaside cafés for people watching, and several marinas for yachts and super-yachts along its coast. Although the Riviera is famous for the glamour of St. Tropez, Monaco, and the Cannes Film Festival, there are many other lesser known attractions and places to visit, such as the perched villages of Gourdon and Eze, the perfumeries in Grasse, the potters of Vallauris, and the glassblowers of Biot.The Riviera has been the inspiration for many works by artists, such as Picasso and Renoir, which are on display in local museums. Sea-front hotels and holiday resorts are the most expensive options, with smaller, modest, more affordable accommodations available as you move away from major cities or further inland. Cafés, bars, and restaurants are diverse enough to respect your vacation budget and tastes, with the vast majority of eateries serving food local to the area--Provençal cuisine with Italian influences, and Cassis and Bandol regional wines.The small independent state of Monaco is surrounded on three sides by France, and the fourth by the Mediterranean. It has been ruled by the Grimaldi family since the 13th century and is a major center for tourism on the Mediterranean. The glamor of Monaco has been replaced by Monte Carlo for its opulence, designer and luxury shopping, and its casino.The busiest travel season is in July and August, when crowds and prices both skyrocket. But, with 300 days of sunshine per year, 115 km (71 mi) of warm blue coastline and beaches, 18 golf courses, 14 ski resorts, and 3,000 restaurants, you're sure to have a wonderful time and find plenty of things to do whenever you plan to stay.

Croatia travel guide

4.4
Historic Walking Areas · Landmarks · National Parks
Once situated on the edge of empires between the Balkans and Central Europe, Croatia represents a land of great natural diversity and rich cultural heritage. Croatian cultural tourism relies on the charming juxtaposition of contrasts. Venetian palaces sit next to Napoleonic forts, Viennese mansions face Socialist Realist sculpture, and early Slavic churches built on the sites of ancient Roman settlements offer countless sightseeing opportunities. Croatia's museums present the main stages of the history of Europe. The country's sapphire seawater and long coastline speckled with islands draws visitors, as do numerous nature reserves, marinas, ancient fortified towns, and sandy and rocky beaches. In recent years, Croatia's shoreline has become a famed center for nautical tourism and naturism, and is a promising diving destination. Hikers explore outdoor landscapes of canyons, underground grottoes, dramatic waterfalls, stony peaks, and scenic lakes of the Dinaric Alps, which hug the coastline. Inland areas showcase mountain resorts, national parks, pine forests, vineyards, and spas.
