From the Balearic Islands off the coast of Spain to the shores of ancient Turkey to the east, you have an almost endless choice of superb cruising itineraries and exceptional shores to explore. In addition to perennial favorites like the Greek Islands and the French Riviera, your options include Croatia’s “thousand islands” — all with stunning scenery — along the Adriatic Coast, and the exotic cruising grounds steeped in history around the shores of Turkey. Secluded anchorages on the coast of Corsica, carved during the last Ice Age, serve as the perfect gateway for touring the island home of Napoleon Bonaparte. And who can resist Italy’s 600 nautical miles of coastline (not to mention the food)? Wherever you choose to cruise in the Mediterranean, you will find friendly people, great cuisine and nonstop, picturesque villages and landscapes.
