The first thing to do is decide what it is you want to do. Do you want to see historical sights, taste incredible food or tour beautiful landscapes? WAnt to visit the locations where The Game of Thrones is filmed? What is your budget and how much time do you have for vacation time?

Europe offers many things to do in terms of vacationing. Of course, some of the main countries you want to see are the United Kingdom, France, Italy, and Greece. If you have a longer time to spend, you could see all of the major countries in one trip. If you are strapped for time (and cash) you may want to focus on one country and take excursions from that location.
Italy, for example, is one destination that just about everyone wants to travel to at one time or another. There are Rome and the Vatican City for historical aspects, Tuscany for the countryside and great food and wine, Venice for the magic of the city built on water and everything else in between. If you are touring Italy, a side excursion you may consider is to Croatia.
Croatia is an Eastern European country with a long coastline on the Adriatic Sea. Encompassing more than a thousand islands, it’s also crossed by the Dinaric Alps. Its inland capital, Zagreb, is distinguished by its medieval Gornji Grad (or Upper Town) and diverse museums. The major coastal city of Dubrovnik has massive 16th-century walls encircling Old Town with Gothic and Renaissance buildings.
When the weather is warm, you can catch a ferry from Italy into one of several ports in Croatia. It is that close! You can also fly into Croatia year-round from many points in Europe. For high season, book in advance because Croatia is becoming extremely popular as of late. Television shows like the Game of Thrones are shot in its historic cities, celebrities relax on its beaches and cruises make stops in Croatia that have brought it into focus.
Croatia is easy to access from many countries and you will be amazed at what this country has to offer. As mentioned before, HBO’s hit show, the Game of Thrones is shot in Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik is one of Croatia’s hidden gems and is vastly become a tourist favorite. Consider Croatia for your next European vacation whether the Game of Thrones is in your wheelhouse or not. If it is, tour the Game of Thrones and see some of the locations where some very important scenes were shot. We are sure you will not be disappointed.
