Craving a culture adventure in Europe? Adventures can come in all shapes and sizes from seeing famous bridges to learning on culture and archaeological tours.
Travel company Peter Sommer Travels has launched four culture tours among the historic sites and landscapes of the Mediterranean.
Catering to small groups, Peter Sommer Travels features 14 different tours and gulet cruises in Turkey, Greece and Italy.
From archaeologists, historians and travel writers to Peter Sommer himself, expert guides lead the tours by traditional wooden boat or on foot. They explore the “wonders of past civilizations while enjoying the food, culture and history of each region.”
The new tours include:
Cruising to the Cyclades: A Greek island experience, the tour sails to the Aegean islands in the Dodecanese and Cyclades archipelagos including Santorini, Kos and Naxos.
