If you’ve ever wondered where to go on your next vacation then it’s time you considered using military airfare discounts to the Mediterranean; there are a host of impressive destinations that are often overlooked.
Of course, Rome and Barcelona are worth a visit but, there is so much more to see in the Mediterranean.
Visit Valencia in Spain and you’ll find your taste buds stimulated by the paella and horchata, a drink made from tiger nut milk.
You’ll also need to check out the urban park that runs under the city on the site of an old river. You’ll find an Art and Science museum and don’t forget to pick up a handful of souvenirs from the central market.
Tunis is an impressive North African city but the terror attacks in 2015 have led to a shortage of tourists. This makes it a great time to visit and experience ancient history. Start with the ruins of Carthage and admire the Roman and Phoenician architecture; much of which is still preserved today.
Don’t forget the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is Tunis’s central medina. Haggling is expected.
Sardinia is an Italian island with a city that is divided into two. The new half of the city sits at sea level while the older part is at the top of a hill and only reachable by steep steps and zigzag ramps.
Near the marina, you’ll find the towering stone archways and an array of delicious treats. Troll through these, sample the delights, and head for the pedestrian streets with some authentic Italian charms.
This town in Sicily is surprisingly untouched by the tourist industry. You can explore the entire area in less than a day but for that whole time, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time. You can take a cable car to the top of Mount Eric to see everything in one go.
Remember to try the al pesto Trapanese; it’s a local specialty.
On Mallorca, you’ll find an abundance of expensive yachts and cosmopolitan, bustling capital. In fact, Palma is one of Spain’s largest cities and a culinary delight, the side streets are packed with fantastic delicacies.

These are just a few of the delights waiting for you when you grab your military airfare discount to the Mediterranean.
