Sail a Traditional Ship: Turkey

7 of 11

Originally built for fishermen and sponge divers, the gulet—a traditional two-masted wooden sailboat—is now used for picturesque sailings, especially off the Bodrum peninsula in southwestern Turkey. Views of hilltop windmills, sandy beaches, and citrus orchards on the Aegean’s tiny islands are best experienced en couple to the clink of champagne flutes.

Where to Book: Windstar Mediterranean cruises in the summer and fall; $649.
