In the Vatican, Renaissance art is on display, while in boutiques the latest fashion awaits. The joyous patterning of tile work in Spain gives way to mosaics in Istanbul. From monumental sights such as the Acropolis and the Pyramids to simple pleasures like fresh bread dipped in estate-pressed olive oil, discover the Mediterranean’s endless appeal and timeless treasures. Delve into 25 centuries of history, art, and culture. Enjoy overnight stays and more time in iconic ports such as Barcelona, Venice and Istanbul. Explore the lands where Western Civilization was born and where the fine art of living has been perfected ever since.
