It’s never too early to start thinking about next year’s vacation and just looking at pictures of Mediterranean destinations can get you hankering for some summer sun. Whether you’re looking to immerse yourself in history, feast on culture, loll on the beach or party like there’s no tomorrow, there are plenty of Mediterranean destinations to tempt you into starting to save your pennies.
1. Munching Seafood in Cadiz, Spain
Often overlooked in favor of Seville and Granada, historic Cadiz is one of the most interesting Mediterranean destinations for people interested in Europe's military history and travelers who love historic architecture. Easily one of Andalusia's most beautiful historic cities, Cadiz boasts a maze of narrow cobbled streets, all of which seem to lead to the yellow-domed cathedral that suddenly rears up in front of the weary pedestrian. The city has many fine historic houses, some of which have naval connections. Cadiz is also a fantastic place for foodies, boasting many fine seafood tapas bars that serve traditional cuisine at an affordable price.
