Villa Orsula

Dubrovnik, Croatia

There probably couldn’t be a better place to plot your Croatian adventure than from the enchanting patio of the Villa Orsula’s Victoria Restaurant, where views of Old Town Dubrovnik beckon with twinkling lights that set the Adriatic Sea aglow. But it may be tough to leave the architectural beauty of this 1930s-era villa, with rooms swathed in luxurious fabrics and bathrooms scented with Bulgari products.

Rub elbows with a prince or just visit the home of Prince Albert II, the son and successor to Prince Rainier. Built in 1191 as a fortress, the Prince’s Palace of Monaco is a popular tourist attraction. The state rooms are open to the public during the summer. We recommended listening to the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra perform an open-air concert in the palace’s courtyard. 960 1280

The Monte Carlo Harbor has some of the most luxurious scenery that Monaco has to offer. It’s a great place to take a leisurely stroll among the impressive yachts and beautiful buildings. The harbor is thriving, with cruise ships, fishing crews and dozens of restaurants and bars in case you need to make a pit stop along the way. We recommend spending $2-ride on the Bateau Bus (water taxi) to really take in all the sights while you relax. 960 1280

Le Louis XV

The cuisine at Le Louis XV restaurant is inspired by the French Riviera and Italian Riviera. A meal here isn’t for travelers on a budget. For lunch, 2 dishes, cheese, dessert, coffee and wines selected by the restaurant’s sommeliers will easily rack up a $190 check at the end of your meal. A jacket is required and tie recommended. 960 1280
