Ravenna – the city of mosaics

Zadar: more than 2,000 years of history

On its steps, you can relax after strolling through the fortified old town with the monumental Church of St Donatus, the square of five wells, and four medival gates.
Sail through the Bay of Kotor
The emerald-green Gulf of Kotor sprawls over nearly 30 kilometres (18.6 miles) between rugged cliffs. The impressive bay cuts deep into the coast of Montenegro, creating a spectacular fjordscape.
