Narona was the name of the ancient Roman city that was located in the Neretva valley in present day Croatia. The city was located on the alluvial planes, between present day City of Metkovic and Vid. The town continued to be on of the most important towns in the area.


Keeping this in mind a stroll through the Forum and along the remains of the once magnificent defensive walls is a nice break from lying around getting grilled on the beach. And besides: For those with 20-20 vision old Greek and Roman coins are still found from time to time (and by no means only by archaeologists). Should you not be as lucky as to find any yourself there is a large collection of coins found at Narona at: The Archaeological Museum in Split.
