LITTLETON, Colorado – October 15, 2019 – The Mediterranean’s sapphire seas lure travelers in and convince them to stay awhile. And, in 2020, as part of its NEW “Undiscovered Mediterranean” series of tours, the Globus family of brands is inviting travelers to off-the-beaten-path destinations along the Mediterranean, including seaside stays in some of the world’s most picturesque places.
Here are 6 “Undiscovered” places throughout Italy, Greece, Montenegro and Slovenia to discover – and overnight in – on tour with Globus and Cosmos. These are secluded seaside towns worth a deep dive:
ITEA, Greece (NEW! 14-day Southern Italy & Greece)
Just as sweet as the wildflower, thyme and fir honey this quiet coastal town is known for is waking up to both mountain and ocean views. Globus invites travelers to spend two nights in this charming village – a highlight of this Mediterranean.
PAROS, Greece (NEW! 8-Day Greek Island Adventure)
This slower-paced island of whitewashed villages – often referred to as a “mini Mykonos” – is also famous for the white marble once mined here as well as the “Church of 100 Doors,” one of the world’s most significant Byzantine ruins.
BUDVA, Montenegro (NEW! 11-Day Discover the Eastern Med)
Originally settled by Venetians, this architectural and atmospheric port sets the stage for lavish leisure. Here, travelers are invited to enjoy an evening on their own to sip the regions honey brandy or indulge in the catch of the day.
BARI, Italy (NEW! 11-Day Discover the Eastern Med)
What better way to end an overnight ferry ride across the Adriatic Sea than to wake-up in this historic port city? Travelers can take advantage of their time here by weaving their way through the maze of beautiful side-streets toward the Basilica of St. Nicholas.
LA SPEZIA, Italy (14-Day Mediterranean Flavors)
Just minutes from Cinque Terre, this picturesque port town invites travelers down the winding streets of the old town to enjoy some of the best cuisine in Italy.

“Globus’ new ‘Undiscovered’ touring vacations take travelers through the winding roads and unspoiled villages, most of which other tour companies don’t visit and cruise ships don’t overnight,” said Steve Born, chief marketing officer for the Globus family of brands. “From waking to the sounds of waves crashing on the shore to learning the secrets behind the places that launched a thousand myths, these Globus, Cosmos and Cosmo Lite tours get travelers to the far-away islands and untouched towns to see and experience the local side of life.”
