The Mediterranean is a jewel in the world, its coasts have an uncomparable beauty, and the fortifications, cities, and towns that are erected along the coast fill it with commercial and touristic life.
Can you imagine being able to travel around the Mediterranean coast on one trip? It’s possible! In Europe there is a Mediterranean Corridor Railway that allows you to visit the countries of Spain, France, Monaco, Italy, and Slovenia by the Mediterranean coast, the railway also passes close to the Croatian border with the Mediterranean Sea.

If you decide to take a route by train through Europe this is one of the tourist attractions that you cannot miss. With the Mediterranean corridor you can visit the magical cities that we detail below. The itinerary has frequent connections with important and tourist cities that you will love.
