Put down the history book and see it first hand with 5% off sailing holidays in Greece, Croatia, Italy, Spain and Turkey with The Moorings.
The Moorings provide the perfect base to cruising the med in style. One of the main appeals of the Mediterranean is the climate, with a fleet of tourists flocking for long lazy days in the sun. However there is more to the med than its beaches, with thousands of years of history and culture just waiting to be discovered.
Follow in the footsteps of Plato, Socrates and Aristotle in Greece and uncover civilizations thousands of years old. Venture south to the cliff-lined shores of Cape Sounion Bay and walk amongst the towering Temple of Poseidon. The Greeks certainly knew how to choose a site for a temple, 70km south of Athens, the temple stands on a craggy spur almost plunging 65metres down to the waters edge. After taking a trip around the site, there are a couple of tavernas – perfect for lunch and a swim.
Embrace the eclectic mix of new and old in Hvar. History has left its mark on Hvar perhaps more than any other Adriatic Island and The Moorings offers the perfect sailing options to explore the perfect blue waters, with friendly locals and streets dotted with 13th century architecture and history. When in Hvar, all the streets will lead to Hcarska pjaca (Hvar’s square), the city’s centre of the city’s public life and the largest square in Dalmatia. Take a visit to the Cathedral of St. Stephen and admire the work of artists Stefano Celesti and Palma Junior.
This enduring city is a richly studded diadem of historical sites dating back to the 13thcentury. Visit Palau de l’Amudaina, originally an Islamic fort, this mighty construction was originally a residence for the Mallorcan monarchs and is still one of the residences of the King of Spain. Traverse down the series of cavernous stone-walled rooms, complete with lavish decoration and see what its like to live like a King.
