(28) Cruising the Magical Med

The romance and beauty of the Mediterranean and its rich history as the Cradle of Civilization make it a favorite cruise destination for novice and seasoned cruisers. Cruise the beautiful Aegean and Adriatic Seas in the eastern Med and soak up the beauty and history of ports like Venice, Istanbul, Athens and popular Greek Isles of Mykonos, Rhodes and Santorini. Cruise the western Med for ports along the west coast of Italy like Livorno (Florence), Civitavecchia (Rome) and Naples. Other favorite western Med ports are the beaches of the glamorous Monte Carlo, Canne and Nice Rivieras and Spanish coast ports of Barcelona, Valencia, Malaga and Majorca and Lisbon, Portugal.

  • Best Bet: Make the most of the time and book a cruise that includes both the eastern and western Med. Avoid jet lag in both directions by booking a transatlantic voyage paired with a Med cruise.
  • Best Time: Cruise between April through October.
