Ports

La Valletta, the tiny capital of Malta, is a planned city, constructed in the 16th century as a fortified town and as the seat of power for the Order of Saint John. Today La Valletta is a UNESCO World Heritage, famous for its wide, straight streets. The city gets hot in the summer, so be sure to bring your swimming gear for a refreshing dive in the Mediterranean. Its many historic buildings are best admired in the early mornings, leaving the evenings for parading around the old harbor.

Dubrovnik, the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic Sea’ deserves its name. It’s an old port town and one of the best-preserved medieval walled cities in the world. White houses with red roofs line the tightly packed streets of the old city, and if you discover the town on foot you will find churches, monasteries, the old fortress and several renaissance era buildings. Enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle by spending an afternoon at the beach, followed by a fine meal at a local restaurant.
