Sand In My Suitcase
Luxury travel tales with a twist of adventure
The best thing to do in Dubrovnik? Walk on top of the medieval city walls. Gaze down on one side at churches, palaces and carved fountains, all crammed together with apartments and cafes. On the other side, gawk at the turquoise sea.
Tiny Trogir has no canals. Never mind. It’s still nicknamed “Little Venice.” If you visit Croatia, try to see the medieval fairy tale town of Trogir.
Looking for pinch-me-I’m-dreaming scenery, historical heritage or grand adventure? Why not charter a yacht? One that would make Jack Sparrow drool with envy.
So you’ve walked the wall. And now it’s hot. Not to worry, there’s some great swimming in Dubrovnik. One of the best public beaches is a ten-minute walk up the road from the Old City.
“Where is Diocletian’s Palace?” visitors often ask when in Split, Croatia. Shopkeepers laughingly reply, “You’re in it!” The 1,700-year-old palace is the beating heart of the inner city.
Venice. The medieval walled city of Korcula. Crete. Voyages to Antiquity cruises the Mediterranean, introducing you to the history, art, myths and culture of the classical civilizations.
