Contrast the vibrant and cosmopolitan western Mediterranean with the remote ruins and rustic ports in the east during this 28-day cruise featuring stops throughout Portugal, Spain, Gibraltar, Italy, Malta, Greece, and Turkey. Drink aged port wines inside a weathered riverside warehouse in Porto. Scan the distant hills of Morocco from the heights of Gibraltar. Sample sizzling, ham tapas inside a noisy bar steps away from Barcelona’s shadowy Gothic Quarter. Savor authentic eastern Mediterranean flavors during an unforgettable dinner and concert amid the ruins of the Celsus Library in Ephesus, Turkey. Wander open Turkish markets and savor the first tart pomegranates of the season or reflect among St. Therapon’s Baroque art. This extensive exploration of Mare Nostrum concludes in Athens, not far from the shadows of the Parthenon’s columns atop the Acropolis.
