While many people don’t think of the fall season as a great time to travel to Mediterranean countries, nothing could be farther from the truth. The weather is beautiful this time of year and traveling in the fall off-season means your vacation may cost much less than if you traveled in the peak travel season. Whether you decide to visit Jordan, Israel, Croatia, Egypt, or all four, planning is half the fun. Keep reading to uncover some hidden gems.
Vacation Ideas In Jordan
Jordan offers a completely unique vacation experience. Here you’ll get a chance to visit the famous red city of Petra, which is carved from red mountain-sides, and float in the Dead Sea, the lowest point on airbrush Earth. Once you’ve had your fill of the Dead Sea, consider visiting the ancient Citadel or Roman Amphitheater. Although Jordan is an ancient land, you’ll still find many modern conveniences.
Vacation Ideas In Israel
When you decide to travel to Mediterranean countries, you shouldn’t miss Israel. The country is a history lover’s dream come true with historical sites like the Western Wall, Dome of the Rock, the Church of the Ascension, and the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem.
If mountain climbing is more your thing, a trip to Galilee with its mountains, colorful vegetation, and wildlife will prove to be an outdoorsman’s paradise. To end your trip on a relaxing note, visit Israel’s resort city of Tiberias. There you’ll find 17 different hot mineral springs, just waiting for you to sink in and relax.
Vacation Ideas In Croatia
Croatia offers a great vacation for anyone who loves the outdoors. The country offers hiking, camping, biking, and scuba diving in an area smaller than the state of West Virginia. The country has a number of many small islands, so if you’ve ever wanted to vacation on a deserted island, Croatia will be an ideal getaway. If your time in Croatia is limited, stick with Zagreb, the country’s capital. The cobbled streets and ancient architecture drew in over 500,000 tourists in 2005.
Vacation Ideas In Egypt
If the history of the mighty pharaohs and ancient pyramids interests you, a trip to Egypt might be right up your alley. The city of Luxor boasts the Valley of Kings and the Valley of Queens, the final resting places of both King Tutankhamun and Queen Nefertari. Cruise ships float down the Nile into the city of Aswan. This charming little town is small enough to explore on foot so you’ll definitely want to pack your walking shoes. After visiting Aswan, make sure to take a trip to Cairo and Egypt’s most famous landmarks, the pyramids. These ancient mysteries are a definite must see!
Whether this is the first time you’ll travel to Mediterranean countries, or you’re a seasoned Mediterranean traveler, take advantage of these vacation ideas. The fall off season is the perfect time to take advantage of this beautiful area of the world and start planning your perfect vacation.
