Wonderfully varied and woefully underrated, the Adriatic coast is a combination of quality and diversity. Espousing the back of Italy’s boot, travel clockwise all the way down to Montenegro and Albania, and you’ll find yourself with the delicious recipe of warm sunshine, aeonian history and the soothing murmur of the sea. Savour the flavour of a cuisine that is as varied and rich as its terroir; think homemade pasta, impossibly fresh seafood and local cheese to satiate even the most jaded of gastronomes! Longer stays in port allow for in-depth exploration at your own pace, so set sail on one of Silversea’s luxury Adriatic cruises to discover a region that is a treasure trove of style, UNESCO World Heritage sites, national parks and easy summer living.
The oldest continuously working pharmacy is located in Dubrovnik, inside Dubrovnik’s Franciscan Monastery founded in 1317. Aptly named "the Old Pharmacy", this 700-year old architectural marvel is not to be missed if you visit Dubrovnik. Forget Game of Thrones sightseeing tours, this hidden apothecary (once run by monks to treat their brothers) tells more history than a television series ever could.
