Albania, located on the Adriatic coast, is loaded with traditional Mediterranean charm. It is a giddy blend of religions, styles, cultures and landscapes, from Sunni Muslim to Albanian Orthodox, and from idyllic beaches or rocky mountains to cultivated fields of citrus orchards, olive groves and vineyards.
Macedonia is smack bang in the middle of the Balkan Peninsula. The opportunities for relaxation and exploration are many and varied. Sit in a lively café, experience the time-worn Turkish bazaars, gaze at any number of medieval monasteries, wander in modern shopping centres or marvel at Lake Ohrid’s many cultural monuments.
Montenegro is located on the Adriatic Sea and is once again one of the best destinations on the Adriatic for any sort of traveller. Besides the picturesque surroundings, the country is also teeming with charming medieval towns and swanky port-side cities. Whether you’re trekking through the national parks or exploring the old walled cities along the coast, there is no shortage of great things to do.
