    Milos, that is a great list of beautiful looking historical cities. I have been to actually to most of them, missing only Budva and Dubrivnic. One other place I really loved along the coast as well was Piran in Slovenia. But overall all the nicely preserved towns at the Adriatic were so charming that it is actually hard to pick the best ones… 🙂
