With so many ways to fill your days on shore, it can be easy to miss some amazing sights. Thankfully, we’ve narrowed it down to 5 Mediterranean excursions you cannot miss.

 

Malleson, Hope & Tuker, M.A.R.

Rome :  Explore the Catacombs of St. Callixtus

St. Callixtus is the most popular of the Roman catacombs. It has a network of galleries about 19 km long and 20 meters deep which includes the crypt of nine popes and examples of early Christian frescoes, paintings, and sculptures.

 

Barcelona: Visit Park Güell

Designed by Antoni Gaudí, Park Güell is a perfect example of the Modernisme/Art Noveau Catalonia is famous for. Simply walking around the park offers insight into the cultural background of the region, and its strong inspiration drawn from the natural world means it is one to be seen and experienced.  The park also boasts fantastic views of  the city from its terrace.

Florence : Take in the Accademia Gallery

Florence’s Accademia Gallery provide the opportunity to see the most famous work of Florences’ most famous son, Michelangelo. That said, art and architecture feature everywhere in the city, so if the hour long queues to get in to the more famous galleries don’t appeal to you, take a stroll around the city and enjoy some of its world famous gelato.

Venice: Get lost in the city

While the number of tourist attractions within Venice is astounding, perhaps the most worthwhile attraction is the city itself. The small streets and canals are perfect for walking along if you are looking to avoid the hustle of the crowded tourist spots.

Monte Carlo: Test your luck at the Monte Carlo Casino

No trip to Monte Carlo would be complete without a visit to the Monte Carlo Casino. Inside, you will find the expected gambling rooms (which coincidentally locals are banned from), but the facility also houses the Grand Théâtre de Monte Carlo for those seeking a more cultural experience.
