Go to Manarola, the oldest and second smallest of the Cinque Terre towns, for fresh seafood from the Ligurian Sea, sweet Sciacchetrà wine and some peace and quiet (no cars are allowed). To get there, take the Pisa Centrale train from any of the Cinque Terre towns, which costs less than €10 and runs multiple times per day.
The coastal town of Kotor is actually a submerged river canyon. It’s super-secluded, surrounded by limestone cliffs and has one of the best-preserved medieval old towns in the world.
Narrow streets and Gothic alleyways of Piran wind through this historical Slovenian town sitting at the tip of a thin peninsula. The town is so tiny, you’ll want to make the 30-minute walk from end to end.
Rovinj is Located on the Adriatic Sea, Rovinj is an active fishing port (hello, amazingly fresh meals) and boasts incredible Mediterranean weather. Also nearby is the Brijuni Island National Park, where you can see ancient Roman villas and the remains of a Byzantine Palace.
Though it’s the second largest city in Portugal, Porto is often overshadowed, tourism-wise, by Lisbon. A lively cultural scene and even livelier-colored buildings should make you reconsider. Check out the Mercado do Bolhão, a massive indoor market where you can pick up culinary delights from freshly-baked breads to fish that were probably swimming in the Atlantic hours earlier.
