Summer on the Mediterranean Sea

The Mediterranean is rich with enough 'must-see' locations to fill anyone's bucket list. Check many of them off on this whirlwind tour while also going on adventures off of the beaten path.

Never fear - this isn't just your standard stock tour! Along with all of the picturesque stops you'd expect, such as the Acropolis in Athens and the Colosseum in Rome, you'll also get a taste of the culture in the area. Visit the small villages outside of the big cities, have a private dinner at a Tuscan Winery, and meet the people not just see the places!

Highlights

Local guides will escort you door-to-door to all of the must-see sights to ensure you are fully immersed in the wonders of Greece, Italy, and Croatia.

You will be shown secret spots off the beaten trail, have your bellies filled with home-made delicacies, and be provided with cozy beds at the end of the night. Your only worries will be how to digest the new flavours fast enough, how to bring home the feel of the Mediterranean sea on your skin, and how to pack all your souvenirs into one piece of luggage.
