Nature and wildlife
The Mediterranean is known not only for its temperate climate and glistening coastlines, it is home to hilly landscapes and forested regions that are rich in biodiversity. Throughout the wetlands you’ll find lots of endemic fish, amphibians and many species of birds.
Much of the culture in the Mediterranean is influenced by the balmy climate and coastal regions. There’s a huge emphasis on food with countries such as Italy, France, Greece and Spain being extremely passionate about their regional dishes. But they also have a passion for the finer things in life and you’ll find some of the wealthiest destinations in this part of the world.
