Southern Europe at a Glance
Warm Mediterranean beaches, snow capped mountains, sea-food, almonds, oranges and olive oil all help to make Southern Europe special.
Dig into a dish of steaming pailla rich with broth, mussels, rice and saffron, get raw milk from an incongruous road-side dispenser in Croatia, sample carefully shaped pasta coated in fresh tomato sauce, try a stuffed grape-leaf, eat whole calamari--these are some of the culinary delights you can sample as you travel throughout Southern Europe.
Once you've had your fill, historic cities and beautiful beaches beckon. Explore the pre-medieval town of Split, Croatia, visit the Colosseum in Rome, ogle art in Florence, see forts in Portugal, visit Greek ruins in Greece, and get your fill of surreal art and architecture in Barcelona. Wind-surf in Portugal, sun-bath in Spain, hike along the Italian coast or slip into a resort for the weekend. Southern Europe is at your finger tips.
