The Mediterranean is a perennial favourite with Irish cruisers. From Majorca which frequents the worlds best island listings, encompassing fantastic beaches, galleries, museums, to Moorish ruins. Across to Sicily, a photographers playground. Head to the Astronomical Clock at noon to catch the tower’s daily spectacle, starring its bronze statue carousel. The 12th-century Santissima Annunziata Church, Gothic-style Messina Cathedral and the 19th-century Galleria V. Emanuele III span through centuries of architectural diversity. Or take in the Eastern Mediterranean going further into the Aegean sea surrounding the Greek Isles. The Greek Isles for many becomes a bucketlist destination with perhaps the most popular being Santorini. Santorini is one of the world’s most popular islands, known best for its dramatic scenery, whitewashed villages and fiery volcanic activity. Here adventure bubbles above the Aegean Sea in the most bold and breathtaking ways. A cable car takes you to the capital of Fira, a bustling cliff-top town awash with old cathedrals, enthralling museum collections and cozy tavernas. Venture to the coast for a swim in the deep blue waters that lap red and black pebbled beaches. And peel back layers of lava and history among excavated Akrotiri. Whether it’s by bicycle, ATV or on your own two feet, exploring this Cyclades isle never fails to impress.
