The very idea of the Mediterranean brings to mind stunning natural beauty, diverse cultural heritage, sophistication, and champagne- in short, the glamorous life! It is, without a doubt, one of the most desirable regions in the world to cruise, as the whole region is peppered with picturesque beaches, secret coves, spectacular harbors, and exotic port destinations.
I can attest to the allure of the golden beaches of St. Tropez, the elegance of Monte Carlo’s Grand Casino, the eternal beauty of Rome- These remarkable destinations are a must-see for world travelers, and all of them (and more!) can be visited on a western Mediterranean cruise.
