The more southerly reaches of Europe and the coasts of northern Africa hold a special place in the imagination of the British people in general. As lush and wonderful as the UK countryside might be, there is something rather more exotic and intoxicating about the coastal areas around the Mediterranean. Which is partly why so many of us flock to those more illustrious regions any chance we get and why so many of us love nothing more than Mediterranean Cruises.
There are certain parts of the Med that capture the imagination yet more firmly than others, and not just of us Brits but of romantics the world over. Places like Rome, Venice and Florence, to name just a few Italian examples are truly incredible places to visit even for a short time and incorporating these great places into a cruise holiday make them an especially magical experience.
But beyond those legendary locations, there are sites of true historic significance and real majesty that you might not have considered visiting before but which are quite wonderful places to see in their own right. The likes of Santorini, one of Greece’s more resplendent islands, or Dubrovnik, one of the more incredible places to see along the Croatian coastline. Elsewhere, the Corsican coast offers a massive amount for visitors to enjoy as well, as do all manner of port and resort towns along the Greek and North African mainlands.
The good news for anyone with an urge to get themselves out to sea in style over the next year or so is that there are some great value trips and all inclusive holiday packages being made available by fully reputable providers. And it has never been easier in fact to pick out those bargains given the wonders of the internet and you can find cruise deals to suit your needs and book online within a matter or minutes.
