Santorini travel guide

4.1
Beaches · Landmarks · Ruins
Wine Island
Known for dramatic views and romantic sunsets, the island of Santorini draws visitors with its long string of black, white, and red beaches. The largest and most significant of a small group of volcanic islands located just 200 km (120 mi) southeast of Greece's mainland, Santorini boasts just over 15,000 permanent residents. Created by a massive volcanic eruption that likely destroyed a single large island, the archipelago still features an active volcano, which saw its last eruption in the 1950s. The easiest way to explore Santorini's craggy coastline is on foot. Start by visiting the archaeological sites on the island's southwestern side, which offer a chance to discover the area's ancient past with unobstructed views of the famed volcano.

Dubrovnik-Neretva County travel guide

4.5
Historic Walking Areas · Islands · Landmarks
As the "Pearl of the Adriatic," Dubrovnik-Neretva County boasts a slender, diverse coastline separated from inland areas by a mountain range and split at Neum by the state border with Bosnia and Herzegovina. Many powerful empires and sea fleets have battled in this region during its boisterous history--the Byzantines, Saracens, Croats, Venetians, as well as Osman, Roman-Germanic, Hapsburg, and Napoleonic empires all left their mark on the land. The preserved white-stone defensive walls of Dubrovnik, the county seat, inspired writer George Bernard Shaw to call it "paradise on Earth" and have helped the city to retain its independence for centuries. Today the city's old town is a World Heritage Site, with narrow, steep medieval alleys, churches, Baroque palaces, and fountains. Along the county's seashore, drink in the series of islands, some of which feature national parks.

Lake Como travel guide

4.2
A favorite vacation spot for more than a century, Lake Como was once an exclusive retreat for local aristocrats and wealthy people. It is not only one of Europe's most beautiful lakes, but also one of the deepest at more than 400 m (1,300 ft). Surrounded by elegant villas, the lake has become a popular holiday destination for tourists because of its range of attractions, from landscapes, wildlife, and spas, to activities like sailing, windsurfing, and kite-surfing. The area has been an inspiration for artists since Roman times. English poet Percy Bysshe Shelley wrote, "This lake exceeds anything I ever beheld in beauty…It is long and narrow and has the appearance of a mighty river winding among the mountains and the forests."
