My Itchy Travel Feet | The Baby Boomer's Guide To Travel

Some of our best travel memories have been created on our various Mediterranean Cruise Excursions. From Southern Italy to the furthest point of Portugal and everything in between, we have had some amazing experiences. Organizing a cruise excurision off the boat will give you plenty of time to explore traditional villages as well as active travel activies like bike riding, hiking, etc. Read on to see some of our best Mediterranean Cruise Excursions memories:

And the Angels Sang on Montserrat

Barcelona is a common port stop for many Mediterrranean cruise ships. However, if you’re looking for a unique experience, our excursion to Montserrat was a beautiful day filled with angelic voices. Click on: And the Angels Sang on Montserrat to read more about our experience.

Four Wheel Drive Fun in Funchal

If you’re cruising on an Atlantic crossing, Funchal, Madeira is often the first or last port stop, depending on if you’re coming or going. This beautiful area has plenty of options for active travel including hiking, trekking or horseback riding, not to mention water sports.

Exploring the Cote d’Azur on a Seabourn Cruise Excursion

On a Seabourn Sojourn cruise from Rome to Ft. Lauderdale, Alan and I choose the ship’s cruise excursion to Èze and Villa de Rothschild and we loved every bit of the experience. Click on: Exploring the Cote d’Azur on a Seabourn Cruise Excursion to read more about our experience.

Exploring Lisbon on a Seabourn Cruise Excursion

Lisbon’s pastel colored buildings perched on the hillsides were just calling my name when we started exploring. Not wanting to miss a thing, we tried to explore every nooks and cranny of this beautiful coastal city, but managed to do in slowly and enjoyably.

Exploring Ephesus on a Royal Princess Cruise Excursion

While many excursions allow cruisers to enjoy a bit of history while off the ship, exploring Ephesus’ history is an excursion that could take days if not weeks. Click on: Exploring Ephesus on a Royal Princess Cruise Excursion to read more about our experience.
