    This would be the trip of a lifetime! I agree, there is definitely something for everyone in the Mediterranean which you have highlighted well, from exploring the ancient cultures and histories, beautiful beaches to the amazing food. Great to see that you included Santorini in the round-up as well. For those on a budget, the Santorini camp site has great facilities and is close to Fira's city center.
