Twenty countries across Southern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa have coastlines along the Mediterranean Sea and make up the Mediterranean region, with each location differing in culture, tradition, and identity.
Here are some of the top places along the Mediterranean that you want to add to your list when planning a Mediterranean tour and booking a trip with us.
If you're looking for a great Europe tour, you can't miss out on visiting the southern countries that border the Mediterranean Sea. Visit the eastern regions of Italy to float along the Grand Canal of Venice and see the Trulli of Alberobello. Spain's Barcelona offers Europe travelers sunny days surrounded by the surreal works of Antoni Gaudi. Follow the footsteps of the rich and famous and spend time along the coastline of the French Rivera, touring through posh cities like Nice, Cannes, and maybe even St. Tropez. Step back in time and visit the famous walled town of Dubrovnik in Croatia; its red rooves a bright contrast to the clear aquamarine waters below. Cruise the islands of Greece, aiming for the perfect photo of the whitewashed buildings of Santorini surrounding crystalline waters. It's no wonder Europe travel in the Mediterranean region is always popular.
Middle East tours along the Mediterranean might find you in the Land of the Prophets, touring Israel, visiting vibrant Tel Aviv, and walking the streets of humbling Jerusalem. Or, you might want to explore the Wonders of Turkey, trace down Troy, and see a Whirling Dervish show. Traveling through the Middle East on the Mediterranean coast, you'll take in gorgeous scenery and beaches, ancient histories, and the varied traditions that make this region famous.
The northern coast of Africa stretches along the Mediterranean from Egypt to Morocco. Traveling to Egypt on tour will take you back in time to explore the icons of one of the world's first civilizations. Cruise down the Nile river, see temple hieroglyphics, and marvel at the Step Pyramid of Doser, the Great Pyramids of Giza, and the Great Sphinx, the world’s oldest sculpture. Follow in the footsteps of the pharaohs to explore the Valley of the Kings, where King Tutankhamun was found buried in gold. On a Morocco tour, delve into the intrigue and romance of Casablanca, explore the Medina, one of the largest thriving medieval centers in the world, and take in the ‘Red City’ of Marrakesh. Cross the Straight of Gibraltar to the southwestern tip of Europe on the Iberian Peninsula to see the famous Rock of Gibraltar, a symbol of British naval strength. Meet the Barbary macaques on “the Rock” and take in St. Michael’s Cave and Europa Point.
