The Mediterranean is so enthralling, so absolutely seductive that, like the mythical siren's song, its spell is impossible to break. It is both a haven for nature's glory and a veritable treasure trove of history. Once you experience it, once you behold all its treasures, you will never bethe same. See it once and the memories forever embrace your soul. See it a thousand times and you still yearn for more.
