Join us on a holiday to Mediterranean

From world-famous landmarks to quaint villages away from the tourist trail, discover the very best of the Mediterranean and its islands.

From Spain and Italy to Egypt and Morocco, the Mediterranean encompasses some of the world's most spectacular destinations, home to wonderfully diverse but equally captivating cultures and landscapes. Be it dramatic cliffs, pristine beaches, vibrant cities, or rolling countryside, the scenery here attracts visitors from far and wide. That's certainly not the only draw, though. With world-class art, superb cuisine and thousands of years of history to explore, it takes several Mediterranean holidays to even scratch the surface of this magnificent region.

For many visitors, one of the many highlights of visiting this exquisitely photogenic part of the world is the chance to take in the vast array of stunning natural wonders that exist here. Snow-topped mountains, active volcanoes, unspoilt countryside and mysterious rock formations all add to the Mediterranean's seemingly endless appeal. Of course, some time enjoying the plentiful sunshine at any of the region's renowned beaches is always worthwhile. There are many miles of golden stretches of sand to revel in along the coast, while Mediterranean island tours provide the chance to discover alluring spots like Sicily, Crete and Corsica. Whether you see yourself relaxing at an elegant resort in Sardinia or venturing to a quiet spot at one of Croatia's secret bays, you can be sure of your fill of sun, sand and sea.

For those fond of exploring man-made wonders, there are few better places than the Mediterranean. As the cradle of Western civilisation, there are thousands of years worth of history to explore, with countless classical ruins, architectural wonders, art and artefacts to discover. From prehistoric cave paintings in France and the remains of ancient settlements in Greece to Egyptian pyramids and 19th-century Moroccan palaces, Mediterranean tours offer an unprallelled variety of unique historical experiences. If, on the other hand, it's more modern attractions you'd like to pursue, you needn't look further than the region's wonderfully vibrant and culture-laden cities. In lively capitals like Madrid, Lisbon, Rome, Athens and Ankara you'll find ample opportunities to enjoy excellent dining, exceptional art and culture, and an infectiously thrilling atmosphere. If the art scene in Barcelona or the film scene in Cannes don't float your boat, there are plenty of lesser known cities, towns and villages to discover. Away from popular spots such as Santorini and the Cinque Terre, you'll find other gems like the blue and white coloured town of Sidi Bou Said in Tunisia and beautiful Collioure in France, inspiration to artists such as Picasso and Matisse.

Things to see in The Mediterranean and the Mediterranean Islands

Here are just some of the marvellous sights that Mediterranean holidays offer

The Mediterranean and the Mediterranean Islands Holiday FAQs

Want to know more about the region? Here are the most-often asked questions.

  • The Mediterranean climate is typically hot and dry in the summer, with cool but mild winters. Average temperatures can vary a lot between countries, although summer temperatures are often in the mid-30s in July and August. Temperatures are lower by the coast, making Mediterranean island holidays a good option for the hot summer months.

  • With plenty of sunshine and relatively mild winders, the Mediterreanean is beautiful at any time of the year. Spring and Autumn are great times to visit, with comfortably warm weather and fewer crowds. While winter doesn't provide the chance for beach lazing, being the low season it makes a great time to visit the region's historical and cultural sights with few other tourists.

  • Some areas can be expensive, particuarly during the summer months. Greece, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Portugal and Spain, with the exception of Ibiza, are among the most affordable destinations, while the more exclusive resorts of the French Riviera and Italy's Amalfi coast are among the priciest.

  • With a total coastline spanning more than 28,600 miles, it's not surprising that the Mediterranean is famed for its beautiful beaches, with long stretches of golden sand and crystal clear waters. As the cradle of Western civilisation, the region is also known for its wide variety of ancient ruins and relics, from Pompeii to Olympia.

  • Fresh, flavourful and healthy, the region's cuisine is a highlight for many travellers. Here you'll find everything from pizza and tapas to stews and grilled meats. With many plant-baed dishes, vegetarians and vegans will find they are very well catered for in many Mediterranean countries.
