Shore Excursions in the Mediterranean

By Viator, February 2014

Between 32 ports of call in 10 countries, the Mediterranean region offers anything a cruiser could want, including castles, beaches, wine, seafood, ancient ruins, lively markets and glamorous shopping opportunities.

Croatia

The two Croatian ports of Split and Dubrovnik are both on the mainland Adriatic coast with easy access to the Dalmatian islands.

Egypt

The Egyptian port of Hurghada is grouped in with Mediterranean cruises that use the Suez Canal to reach the Red Sea.

France

France’s Mediterranean ports include Marseilles (France’s second largest city), Villefranche and Cannes (both on the French Riviera), as well as Bordeaux, which is actually on France’s Atlantic coast. 

Greece

Greece’s ports of call include Athens and Katakolon, both on the mainland, and Santorini and Mykonos, both part of the Cyclades Islands.

Italy

Italy’s ports stretch all the way down the Mediterranean coast and onto the island of Sicily. They include Genoa, La Spezia, Florence, Rome, Naples, Sorrento, Salerno, Messina, Taormina and Palermo.

Malta

Monaco

Part of the French Riviera, the city-state of Monaco is bordered by France on three sides and has a coastline of just 2.5 miles (4 km).

Turkey

Turkey’s ports of call include its largest city, Istanbul, which straddles Europe and Asia over the Bosphorus, as well as Izmir and Kusadasi, both on the Aegean Sea.
