PORTS OF CALL ON A MEDITERRANEAN CRUISE
No matter which one of our amazing, last minute Mediterranean cruise deals you choose, you are guaranteed to find yourself sailing into the region's most exciting port destinations. Whether it's exploring the historic monuments of Rome, cruising around the Greek islands, sampling the local delicacies of Barcelona or gliding along the magical canals of Venice, our cruise deals give customers the chance to see the very best of the Mediterranean. And, with some of the world's most beautiful stretches of sand, the Mediterranean is ideal for beach lovers, history buffs and foodies alike. Read on to discover some of the most popular ports of call on a last minute Mediterranean Cruise:
Find yourself in one of the world's most famous, romantic and mysterious cities - Venice. Italy's floating city is made up of 100 small islands, canals and twisting streets, making it an ideal port for would-be explorers. Take a gondola ride along the iconic Grand Canal and visit Venice's unmissable sights, including the Dodge’s Palace, St. Mark’s Square and the Bridge of Sighs. The city also boasts some of the best restaurants and bars in the Med, with alfresco eateries, canal-side bars and plenty of spots to sample some classic Italian fare. Popular excursions include a trip to Murano Island - where the world-famous Murano glassware is made – and Burano Island, which is home to an array of strikingly colourful houses.
As Spain's most cosmopolitan city, Barcelona is packed with history, art, architecture and incredible food. From checking out the otherworldly masterpieces of Antoni Gaudi - including the Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila and Park Güell - to discovering the grand buildings of Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, the city is best explored on foot. After a busy day of sight-seeing, don't forget to pick up souvenirs from the buzzing La Rambla shopping street, and dive down one of the city's many cobbled backstreets to sample some of the best tapas in the world. Visitors can also take the scenic Port Vell Aerial Tramway to get a bird’s eye view of the city from the hilltop of Montjuïc, where history buffs will also love exploring the Montjuïc Castle and Grec Theather Gardens.
As one of the most photographed destinations in the world and included on almost every "must-see" bucket list, the Greek island of Santorini needs little in the way of an introduction. Best known for the iconic white houses and blue domes that dot the cliffside, this is one of the best places in the Mediterranean to catch a sunset. The island itself has plenty of old-world charm - in fact, donkeys are still one of the main modes of transportation on the island. Not to be missed are the historic hilltop village of Oia and the ancient ruins of Akrotiri, or for those who prefer to take it easy, Santorini boasts many of the Med's most beautiful beaches.
One of the Eastern Mediterranean's most charming port destinations, sailing into Dubrovnik is a magical experience, whether it's your first or fifth time. The old town, which is packed with Baroque buildings, historic sights and hidden eateries, is perfect for exploring, whilst a trip on the scenic cable car to Mount Srd offers one of the finest sunset views in the Mediterranean. Foodies will also love the wide variety of restaurants and bars in Dubrovnik, with fresh local seafood and delicious local delicacies.
From the wonders of Vatican City to the world-famous landmarks of the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Pantheon, the Eternal City is one of the Mediterranean's most popular ports of call. Whether you want to explore the city's sights, such as the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and Castel Sant'Angelo, shop for the finest Italian designer goods or sample some of Rome's most delicious foods – including the world’s best gelato - there's something for everyone in Italy's fascinating capital. No trip to Rome would be complete without a visit to St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican and the spectacular Sistine Chapel. For those who want to unwind away from the tourist crowds, the city is home to some beautiful gardens and green spaces, including the picturesque Villa Borghese.
