The first to explore the Western Mediterranean were the Phoenicians. Defying the unknown and winning the innate reluctance toward the cardinal point where the sun sets, they drove over the Strait of Gibraltar, touching the land in the Iberian Peninsula and on the coasts of modern Tunisia, where they founded important cities such as Barcelona and Cadiz, but especially Carthage.
Later, it was the turn of the Greeks, who Dominated the Mare nostrum before yielding to the power of Rome: They owe the foundation of a large number of colonies in southern Italy, the famous “Magna Greece”, And the French cities Marseille and Nice.
This is the reason for a cruise in the Western Mediterranean: for a journey backwards between the shores that delimit the cradle of our history. Following the profile of islands, gulfs and capes we retrace the routes of the first Navigators, for an emotional tour of art, culture, fun, food, nature and Zumba®.
What are the stages that cannot be missed? Much depends on curiosity and personal sensibility. But we believe that the five choices on our list will agree: Rome,Savona, Marseille, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Palermo.
