With so many different regions, countries, islands and cities to visit, its in no shortage to offer exciting and unique views, cultures and history. In this article, we are going to highlight some of the best places to visit in the Mediterranean, so you’ll know where to spend your next holidays!
The French Riviera
Monaco, Nice, Cannes, Saint Tropez and many more. There’s so much to see and do in the French Riviera that there are books written and movies made, songs sung about the region’s beauty and uniqueness.
Stretching along the Mediterranean sea coast for more than 100 kilometres, the Cote d’Azur is full of glitz and glamor thanks to the rich heritage, but also marvellous natural wonders like the magnificent beaches and steep, rocky mountains. Whether you love culture, high-end shopping, relaxing on the beach or just getting to know crème de la crème of European lifestyle, the French Riviera is the place to be.
Amalfi Coast, Italy
Located in Campania, the Southern part of Italy and bordering the Tyrrhenian sea, a small stretch of coastline – Amalfi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and well deserving of that title.
Panoramic view of coastal towns, rising into the steep hillsides, yachts, sailing in grottos and bays, mouth-watering local cuisine as well as the remoteness and elegance of Italian rural vistas is something you don’t want to miss. Positano is the most famous town in the region and if you want to visit a place that you will never wish to leave, Amalfi Coast should top your bucket list.
Although Greece has many islands and the likes of Zakynthos and Paros, Rhodes – all worth visiting, it is the 73 km2 Santorini, that is considered the crown jewel.
With only 15 thousand people living there, it’s a tiny island, that you can generally get around with ease. The most amazing thing about Santorini are its picturesque landscapes and magical sunsets. If you manage to visit, keep in mind to enjoy at least one dinner during sunset, overlooking the sea. It’s ranked as one of the top honeymoon destinations as well.
If you’re thinking that every piece of land that’s popular with tourists in the Mediterranean is also expensive, Malta will prove you wrong.
Malta is very multicultural, with local heritage mixing with Italian, Northern African and Middle Eastern cultures. The island will offer historical landmarks, beautiful nature and amazing diving locations. Getting around the island is simple thanks to services like carpooling.
Birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte himself, the French island of Corsica is unique in probably every single regard.
Full of exotic, untouched nature, wild beaches, Genovese towers and medieval churches, Corsica lacks nothing and deserves to be added to your travel destinations list.
Due to the fact that you have so many unique islands in the Mediterranean Sea and the fact there’s the mighty French Riviera, Corsica remains, somewhat, under the radar for non-French tourists. With Italian and French influence in architecture, expect to be wowed more than once.
