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!
