Cruise around this season
April is just the month to cruise around the Mediterranean by ship. Get adventurous and join the tall ship cruise on a magnificent rigged sailing boat.

The Mediterranean is great for April travel. Uncrowded resorts, long sunny days, this is just where you’d want to spend quiet time with family.
