3 Best Mediterranean Shore Excursions

Stunning sapphire waters. Postcard-perfect beaches. Countless UNESCO World Heritage Sites. If you’re planning a trip to the Mediterranean, there’s plenty to look forward to — especially on a cruise. Keep reading to discover three amazing shore excursions found on one of our favorite Mediterranean itineraries: Greek Isles and Italy aboard Norwegian Cruise Line.
Santorini
Santorini, Greece

Santorini's Musical Heritage

Santorini, Greece

It’s nearly impossible to mention the Greek Isles without mentioning Santorini, where whitewashed houses cling to rugged cliffs and blue domed rooftops mimic the cerulean sea. Shaped by a volcanic eruption that devastated the landscape in the 16th century, the modern culture is imbued with the ephemeral philosophy that life is short. What better way to enjoy it than with good food, great wine and excellent music? With this tour, you’ll get a taste of all three while learning how local craftsmen make traditional Greek instruments while soaking in the beautiful panoramic views from the scenic hilltop location.

Jet Ski Safari on the Adriatic

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Old Town Dubrovnik has always been incredibly scenic, but its historic sites gained even greater fame after being featured as the fictional capital of King’s Landing in the HBO series “Game of Thrones.” Of course, you’ll want to wander through the streets and get an up-close view of the architecture on foot. But if you want to take it a step further, venture out onto the water to soak up those iconic coastal views via jet ski. Your adventure will start in Cavtat, the resort city nestled in a tranquil crescent-shaped bay in southern Croatia, before zipping through the crystal-clear waters of the greater Adriatic. 

Florence
Florence, Italy

 

Exclusive Pisa & Florence with Uffizi Gallery

Florence and Pisa, Italy

If you aren’t one for large groups and giant bus tours, we completely understand. Dodge the crowds with this exclusive, small group tour in Pisa and Florence for a taste of both destinations. Start with Pisa to get that iconic photo with the famous leaning tower before traveling to the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery in Florence, seeing legendary works by Botticelli, Michelangelo, da Vinci and more. Continue on to the city of Florence, boasting famed architecture, more than 70 museums and an abundance of Italian charm. Then immerse yourself in one of the world’s great art collections at the impressive Uffizi Gallery, where you’ll have reservations that enable you to avoid the long lines.
