You can visit ancient cities, see beautiful sandy beaches and landscapes. Maybe you would like to walk the path that the gladiators and crusaders walked many centuries ago. Visit the temples of great Pharaohs and Kings and sample the different food and wines of the region. You can also learn about the religions of the countries that are along the Mediterranean Sea. This is a great chance to step back in time and just imagine life many centuries ago. You will be able to enjoy breath taking views from the ship as well as visit many ancient sites.
There are different types of cruises that travel along the Mediterranean. Most all of them travel to ports in Spain, Italy, France, Turkey and Greece. There are cruises that just go to the eastern side of the Mediterranean or to the western side of the Mediterranean. On the eastern cruise you will travel toward the eastern side of Greece, Italy, Turkey and other islands. If you want to travel toward Spain, France, Portugal and Italy then you will want to take the western Mediterranean cruise. Then there are cruises that combine both. These cruises are great for family vacations or a couple on their honeymoon because they have longer itineraries, and it is a less stressful way to visit all the spectacular cities of the Mediterranean. No matter which cruise you choose you can expect to be in awe of all the wonderful sights you will see.
