The Mediterranean Sea is the birthplace of Western Civilization. From the ancient Egyptians to the Romans and present-day Europe, it holds so much significance for world history and culture.

As you make your way from country to country, you can explore its stunning natural beauty, exciting monuments and some of the world’s best cuisines. Here are some the amazing features of this great sea.
Enjoy that Perfect Weather. There is a reason why "Mediterranean" is used as an adjective to describe the climate in places around the world in places as far away as California and that’s because it’s simply perfect. Most places around the great sea have mild wild and warm summers. This balanced climate means that the Mediterranean is a great place for year-round activities particularly boating. Even in the northern parts of the Mediterranean, you can still enjoy swimming until very late into the year!
Get a Taste of the Perfect Lifestyle. Countries around the Mediterranean have definitely adopted a different pace of life. Whether it’s Italy’s “Dolce Vita” or the Spanish “Sobre Mesa,” it’s all about taking the time to really savor life. Things move a little bit slowly here and people spend more of their energy enjoying themselves. And that’s definitely easy to do when you have great weather and so many amazing cuisines. This is actually one of the best ways to create you a unique travel itinerary. Instead of following a traditional map or guidebook, why not follow your taste buds and see where they take you!
Create a Perfect Island and Coastal Adventure. The Mediterranean is famous for its long history of sailing culture. From the ancient Phoenicians who built their entire civilization on maritime trade to classic tales like the Odyssey, boating and sailing have long been the lifeblood of the entire region. There’s no better way for you to experience it for yourself than by chartering your own boat. You can sail out to Spain’s famous Balearic Islands or Sicily and Sardinia or famed destination like Mykonos and Crete in Spain.
