Athens has so much to see and do just within the city (link to my Athens travel guide). But, there are also many sights and attractions that you can visit on day trip from Athens. Most are easily reached either by boat, organized tour, public transport or a short ride. Depending on what you like there are various options for day trips from ancient ruins and museums to beaches and coastal towns to monastery and churches.
Founded in 508 BC, Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world, with history sprawling over 5 000 years. Today Athens is the capital of Greece and has more than 3 000 000 residents. In Athens you can find the world’s largest collection of Ancient Greek ruins and artifacts. Athens is usually the starting point for a lot of travelers when visiting Greece and it’s islands, the Cyclades islands are fairly close to Athens. Even though I travel to Greece every summer and have been to Greece more than 40 times I had never been to Athens until now. It was on my travel list for this year and I am really glad I got to visit it.
A must visit when in Italy is the region Tuscany. Birthplace of the renaissance and Italian language evolving from the Tuscan dialect. Tuscany is an idyll of olive groves, vineyards, hill-towns and frescoed churches.
There is so much to and see while in Tuscany from popular tourists spots such as Florence and Pisa to lesser known places like Lucca and small villages. Beginning of August I visited Tuscany and fell in love with the region, I said to myself that I need to come back to Tuscany and stay a bit longer and explore the country side.
Florence is the home of the renaissance, art, architecture, history, literature and many more. Which is no surprise why this city attracts more than 10 million visitors each year. With legendary sights, renaissance architecture, winding streets and so much history Florence is a place that you must visit at least once in your lifetime.
It’s a perfect destination for art lovers, history buffs, foodies and good wine lovers. Florence is a great for any kind of trip from a family trip, to a group of friends trip to a romantic getaway. It’s a city that has so much to offer, so there will be activities for all types of people.
Lefkada is also known as the Caribbean of Greece because of the mountains, waterfalls, secluded beaches and turquoise water.
Kathisma, Egremni, Porto Katsiki – amongst the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean – have won international acclaim and are awarded annually with Blue Flags. Windsurfing, kitesurfing, paragliding, scuba diving, flights in a prop plane, horseback riding, mountain biking, sailing around the surrounding islets, like Skorpios…
Let me introduce you to the concept of farm to table and the agrotourism Mrizi i Zanave in Lezhe in the north part of Albania. The complex has a farm, restaurant, garden and a small hotel. It offers a proper agrotourism experience. Everything that they serve you is grown on their land and home made. Also, the menu changes each season depending on what products are in season then. Everything is produced locally and it’s organic.
This is the second part of my travel guide for Montenegro, you can check out the first part here. I wanted to write a separate blog post on the best beaches and beach clubs to visit while in Montenegro. The coast of Montenegro is absolutely beautiful, clear waters and pebble beaches (there are a few sand ones too) it is absolutely divine. The Adriatic Sea is known to be a bit colder, so be prepared for a tad bit of colder water.
The highly requested travel guide for Montenegro is here. This year I decided to take a long 3 week vacation to the coast of Montenegro. Although it’s a country close to Macedonia, this year in May when I did a road trip to the Balkans (that you can read about here) was the first time I ever visited Montenegro. I only stayed for a day and decided do come back this summer and explore the coast of Montenegro. Mid June I traveled to Montenegro and ended up staying for 3 weeks and overall had a great time.
