We’ll forgive you if you’ve never heard of the Dalmatian Coast. The southern panhandle of Croatia, stretching along the Adriatic Sea, is one of Europe’s best-kept secrets. For years it’s been a favorite of local and regional travelers, until one of TV’s most popular shows thrust it into the spotlight.

Our family trip to London and Paris with Classic Journeys made me a believer in unicorns!”
