Algeria is the largest country in Africa with a coastline facing the Mediterranean Sea and an interior covered by the Saharan desert which is scattered with picturesque ruins.
Having been home to a great number of empires and dynasties in the past, Algeria now offers a diverse cultural heritage and an abundance of fascinating historical landmarks. There are entire Roman towns, captivating museums and bustling medinas just waiting to be explored wherever you go.
The capital, Algiers is characterised by whitewashed buildings rising up from the sea, comprising both a modern and old section. However, the city’s prominent feature and most visited attraction is the enormous Casbah, or ‘citadel’, with its labyrinth of narrow streets and spectacular Ottoman palaces.
Algeria is ideally located for sailing to southern Europe and, with multiple ports along its 1,600-km coastline, there is a wealth of ferry options. Most routes across the Mediterranean Sea have a relatively long journey time, so be sure to book a comfortable cabin.
Italy is a boot-shaped peninsula situated in the Mediterranean Sea at the bottom of Western Europe, with the Tyrrhenian Sea to the West, Ionian Sea to the South and Adriatic Sea to the East.
Italy is the fifth most visited country in the world and contains more World Heritage Sites than any other country. Although Rome, Milan, Venice and Florence are the top tourist destinations in Italy, the country’s rich collections of art, culture and literature from many different periods and regions make it impossible to judge on where the most interesting location is.
With around four thousand miles of coastline, with countless gulfs, inlets, and long sandy beaches, Italy is truly adapted to the holiday lovers every need. Coastal cities with their sea resorts and awesome beaches are easily reachable by car with a variety of ferries and vessels large and small ready to sail you there.
