General information

Bewitching scenery and irresistible tastes add to a dramatic culture you can touch, smell, see and savor in the Mediterranean. Relax beneath the sun on miles of renowned beaches. March into towns steeped in crusader history dotted among scrubland and cliffs plunging into clear water. Stand where legendary Greek mythology inspired and mystified civilization for centuries. Wander pathways through ancient settlements, Roman ruins and Byzantine monasteries. Sail along the Turquoise Coast on a gulette, or walk to the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, later home to the Virgin Mary and St. John. Go north or south on the Apennine peninsula for rugged coastline and unforgettable views, like the Amalfi Drive near Pompeii. Between the breadth of culture and the natural allure, give in to the charm that has enticed travelers for millennia.
