Delve into history at the Archaeological Museum of Igoumenitsa with a permanent exhibition displaying relics ranging from the Middle Paleolithic to Ottoman rule. Along the Amalfi Coast, life may give you lemons, but it is far from sour as the Path of Lemons takes you through the famous groves from where Italy’s famed limoncello derives. Take in the stunning landscapes of Hvar Island, covered in vast fields of ancient olive trees, lavender and vineyards.
