February 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 148

Mediterranean cruises have always been a popular choice for people looking to experience the best of the Mediterranean with as little fuss as possible. It's worth doing a little research to make sure you get the best cruising though; this article takes a look at a range of shore excursions you can experience on a typical Mediterranean to give you some ideas of what to look for.

The Catacombs of St. Callixtus, Rome.

The Catacombs of St. Callixtus are one of the most popular ancient catacombs in Rome. These fascinating series of tunnels are packed full of history. Running a total of 19 km in length and 20 meters below the streets above, the catacombs are full of early Christian frescoes, paintings, and sculptures.

The Accademia Gallery, Florence.

The Accademia Gallery in Florence is famous for its collection of works by Florence's most famous son, Michelangelo. The Gallery is the best place to go to see this master artist's work in the flesh. It's not just the Gallery that makes this excursion so great for those interested in art, though; Florence itself is packed full of interesting art and architecture.

The Park Güell, Barcelona

In the same way that Florence is linked with Michelangelo, Barcelona is linked with Antoni Gaudí. The Park Güell is seen as a perfect example of Gaudí's Modernisme / Art Noveau style. A walk around the park will offer up great insights in to the cultural background of the region, as seen through the eyes of the artist. The parks location also means your able to enjoy great views over the rest of the city.

Monte Carlo Casino, Monte Carlo

For those who like to dice with lady luck, the Monte Carlo Casino really is a must visit. As one of the most famous casinos in the world, no trip to this fantastic city would be complete without a stop here. Although the gambling facilities are extensive, that's not the only reason to visit the casino; the facility is also the home of the Grand Théâtre de Monte Carlo, for those who prefer a more cultural night out.

This is obviously just a taste of the many excursions that are available on a Mediterranean cruise, there really are many, many more for you to discover in this beautiful part of the world. So next time you find yourself booking a cruise holiday, why not make it a Mediterranean experience.
