This cultural fluidity is reflected in the awe-inspiring architecture and fusion of delicious cuisine found throughout the city. From touring museums and historic sites to strolling along its waterfront or reclining on a white-sand beach, this isolated, picturesque region of Italy boasts a wide range of attractions and activities.

Just as everyone who visits, you too will marvel at the exquisite Byzantine mosaics.
