Skip the usual European countries and head for Montenegro with its Mediterranean coastlines, thick forests, deep canyons and medieval towns. The fantastic views on this tour are limitless. You'll come across the biggest lake of the Balkans, island monasteries, structures built by the ancient Greeks, olive groves and a labyrinth of cobblestone lanes. With its rich history, you'll also get to enjoy experiences that are decades old. This includes dining at Kod Pera, a cafe that has been open every day for the past 100 years. Gaining independence only in 2006, Montenegro is a country just waiting to be discovered.
