Mediterranean CruisesOver many thousands of years, the Mediterranean region was a silent witness to the growth and demise of the cultures and people living in the lands surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. It is the sea who served as the main channel of transport, trade and cultural exchange between many different peoples across three continents: Western Asia, North Africa, and Southern Europe. The Mediterranean Sea cradled, but also buried, major cultures - Egyptian and Carthaginian, Greek and Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman, Christian and Islamic.
We offer you the opportunity to join one of our Mediterranean Cruises and travel to a region that straddles time, both ancient and modern, as it strives to remain one of the most important areas of human development over several millennia. Visit places like the Civitavecchia (“ancient town”), a 2000 year old settlement that benefitted from its proximity to the Roman (now Italian) capital. The Greek port of Katakolon, the traveller’s gateway to Olympia, where ancient Greeks met every four years for over a thousand years to celebrate the sacred games dedicated to the Greek God Zeus.
Our other cruises will take you along the Adriatic Sea, the northernmost arm of the Mediterranean Sea, which separates the Italian Peninsula from the Balkan Peninsula. Magical Venice was the true inspiration for countless artists - from Shakespeare to Ben Jonson, Voltaire to Casanova, Titian to Tintoretto. Then, the cruise meanders through Roman and Greek cultural landscapes. To Ancona who, like Venice, was a major destination for merchants during the 16th century. Santorini (the ancient city of Thera), and Mykonos, nicknamed 'The island of the winds' and its famous windmills. The Croatia port of Split and Montenegro's Kotor all serve to connect you with one of the oldest, most celebrated regions in all of human history.
