The local area has a rich cultural heritage and a history which dates back thousands of years. Some very interesting and intriguing structures are still standing which date back to the period when Rome ran most of Europe.
Just as sun seekers enjoy the beaches and the warm waters of this beautiful coastal area, ‘culture vultures’ are never far from a museum or art gallery. Here you’ll find guided tours around the historical sites which offer a deeper insight to the history and the way in which the geography has contributed to the modern and dynamic culture.
Many tourists fall in love with the place and subsequently end up moving to the region.
