The Mediterranean By Ferry is in Europe, Africa, and The Middle East.

Understand[edit]

The Mediterranean Sea is one of the world's largest bodies of water. It is crisscrossed by dozens of ferry routes spanning three continents. Most ferries are available year-round and they are a great way to explore Southern Europe and North Africa. The Mediterranean is a large saltwater sea between Europe and Africa, connected to the Atlantic Ocean via the Strait of Gibraltar and linked to the Indian Ocean with the Suez Canal.

Prepare[edit]

The Mediterranean is warm year-round, so pack accordingly! Visas for U.S. citizens are not required for the European countries, but are necessary to enter the African nations.
