Mediterranean, by Cunard.
Launch your exploration of the Mediterranean
from London or soak up the many highlights of
this mesmerizing region on a
cruise from Barcelona.
Home to some of the oldest cities in the world, the rich
history of the Mediterranean is beyond compare. Walk in the
footsteps of gladiators, step inside ancient archaeological sites
and be spellbound by islands where life seems to move at
an altogether slower pace.
In Barcelona, Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia and artworks by
Miro and Picasso are just the beginning of the experiences
to treasure. The futuristic City of Arts and Sciences is well
worth seeking out in Valencia, while the Santa Maria cathedral
is nothing short of exceptional in Palma de Mallorca.
In the ‘Eternal City’ of Rome, Vatican City and the
Colosseum are just two of the historical highlights to have
on your radar. Naples, meanwhile, brings the archaeological
site of Pompeii, and Pisa’s leaning tower is easily accessed
on a tour from Livorno.
Selected voyages also offer a chance to cross the
Messina Strait or stop in Cagliari to admire its beautiful
hilltop Castello. Then of course there’s the Greek Islands
of Cephalonia, Corfu, Mykonos and Santorini, where the sea
seems to glint an otherworldly shade of blue.
These, together with the Balearic Islands of Mallorca and
Ibiza, are sure to inspire lasting vacation memories.
