Get a backstage pass to the unparalleled countries of Italy, Spain, France and Greece on a 2013 Silversea cruise to the Mediterranean. These romantic countries beckon you with their charming villas and their mouth-watering cuisines, but the ports that line the coasts of these historical giants will leave you with stories, facts and memories to last a lifetime.
Silversea offers travelers a myriad of itineraries and options to the Mediterranean. Each itinerary features the well-known, well-worn paths of the region, along with more elusive and less-traveled areas. For instance, Kotor, Montenegro is a world heritage site with charming stone buildings and winding cobbled streets and is enclosed with a wall built in the middle ages. The island town of Hvar in Croatia is filed with fields of lavender and rosemary. With beautiful beaches and a laid back attitude, this island has become a popular vacation spot for celebrities.
Many of Silversea's cruises feature excursions that give passengers the VIP treatment. For instance, in Barcelona you can hop on a helicopter to take in this lively city by the air. In Dubrovnik, take in the sights before heading to a chocolate tasting at a local restaurant. These cruises almost always include a fascinating guest who speaks about interesting aspects of the world, from authors to geologists. Mediterranean cruises from Silversea often feature overnight stops to take advantage of the nightlife in certain spots, or just give travelers more of a chance to explore these amazing and rich destinations.
