A ten day tour around two Mediterranean countries that have given the western world fascinating history and magnificent culture – from architecture and art, mythology and religion, to literature and music, archaeology and ruins, legacies and masterpieces. Starting with the artistic grandeur of Rome, taking a day trip to legendary Capri, on to Naples Bay, ancient Pompeii, serene Sorrento, and scenic Positano, and finally Athens with its iconic Acropolis and the sanctuary of Apollo at Delphi.
Pompeii offers the best look anywhere at what life in Rome must have been like 2,000 years ago. An entire city of well-preserved ruins is yours to explore. It was once a thriving commercial port and was then buried under 30 feet of hot mud and volcanic ash in AD79. Archaeologists have brought the city back to life.
Fascinating history, magnificent culture

Summer is the high travel season in the Mediterranean. The weather is hot and sunny, the water is warm, and millions of people flock to the coast to soak up the sun and take a break from routine.. During the spring months, the flowers are blooming and the landscape is verdant, while autumn days are mild and clear before the winter rains.
Those wanting to travel earlier in the season can visit some of the more southern destinations as well as the larger Mediterranean islands. Cyprus and Malta are lovely in April, with warm days and pleasant nights. Late March through April is also an ideal time to visit Morocco, Greece, Italy, Slovenia, and Turkey.
