Unlike the many tropical destinations on this list, Dubrovnik, which sits on the southern tip of Croatia, is famous for its historic walled medieval city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. This under-the-radar Mediterranean hotspot, which stood in for King’s Landing in “Game of Thrones,” offers magical views, local food and wine and plenty of star-sighting opportunities. Celebrities who have vacationed there include Tom Cruise, Oprah, Jay-Z and Beyoncé, Richard Gere, and former James Bonds Pierce Brosnan and Sean Connery.
