The vibrant white buildings contrast perfectly with the flanking mountains, which will provide you with an Instagram-worthy snap.
Complementing the beautiful surroundings are the exceptional Greek dishes on offer, which are bursting with both colour and flavour.

One destination that never goes out of style is Ibiza. It will not be hard to see why once you arrive, either, as it is home to an extensive array of beautiful beaches, cool markets, and glorious sunshine during the summer months. You also will not be disappointed when it comes to the wide variety of restaurants, bars, iconic nightclubs, and cosy terraces.
However, while Ibiza might be widely regarded as a party island, there is much more to the destination, as it is ideal for both young and old, offering family-friendly beaches, historic landmarks, and stunning architecture.
One hotspot you might not have considered is Dubrovnik, which is the crown jewel of Croatia. When you are not absorbing the southern city’s many spectacular views, you can indulge in delicious Croatian cuisines, such as grilled or barbecued fish and seafood, which can be complemented by locally produced white or red wines.
If you are a Game of Thrones fan, Dubrovnik is a must, as many scenes in Kings Landing were filmed in the beautiful city, which is due to the city’s striking medieval architecture.

You will feel as if you have stepped inside another world once you arrive, as it features ancient boulders and unusual trees.
While the national park can look beautiful by day, it is at night when the destination comes alive, as it will be impossible to forget the sunset illuminating the desert in a beautiful red hue. The sky will be filled an ombre of blue, purple, and pink shades that will take your breath away.
If you want to book a unique holiday in a beautiful destination, you will be glad you booked a trip to Cappadocia, which is a photographic paradise. Here you can step inside a hot air balloon to fly over dormant volcanoes, lush valleys, cave housing, and natural rock formations.
