Ports of Call
Bari, Italy - Fairy-tale houses that look like chanterelle mushrooms. Alberobello's little round houses with the cone-topped roofs are called trulli -- and they are truly unique. Their origins are ancient -- some date from 3000 B.C. And they are only found here.
Dubrovnik, Croatia - This ancient city is set on a peninsula and surrounded by a 1,000 year old protective wall. Said to be one of the prettiest spots in the world, visitng it's old-city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is like stepping back in time. Or into another world, Dubrovnik is the principal filming location for King's Landing from the blovkbuster book (and television series) "Game of Thrones."
Katakolon, Greece - Explore the site of the very first Olympic Games! Ancient Olympia is a short drive from Katakolon to see where the sacred flame is still lit every Olympic year. Wonder at the ruins of the awesome Temple of Zeus.
Rhodes, Greece - The crusader Knights of St. John made Rhodes their headquarters. Explore the massive fortress of the Palace of Grand Masters, and peer into tiny rooms of the Inns which once housed the knights. See where the towering Colossus of Rhodes once stood -- it could be seen for miles at sea!
Santorini, Greece - The view from the top of Santorini is breathtaking. The harbor below is said to be the site of the lost city of Atlantis! Visit the ruins of Akrotiri and discover a recently unearthed Minoan town which was extinguished by a volcanic cataclysm in 1500 B.C.
Venice, Italy - Venice is possibly the most romantic place you'll ever visit. It seems almost redundant to describe the charms of Venice. The cafes of St. Mark's Square, Palazzo-lined canals plied by gondolas, the elegant Doge's Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore: Venice is one impossibly beautiful sight after next. A great collection of Renaissance era art is housed at Gallerie dell'Accademia. Or, if you prefer modern art, Venice is home to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. And, if you want to enjoy a truly special meal while here, visit one of the excellent restaurants of the Associazione dei Ristoranti della Buona Accoglienza.
