The Mediterranean Sea is a sea connected to the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by the Mediterranean Basin and almost completely enclosed by land: on the north by Southern Europe and Anatolia, on the south by North Africa and on the east by theLevant.

How many seas are in the Mediterranean? In Greek literature (which is where the phrase entered Western literature), the Seven Seas were the Aegean, Adriatic, Mediterranean, Black, Red, and Caspian seas, with the Persian Gulf thrown in as a "sea."

Is the Mediterranean Sea rough in October? Rough Waters: Cruise travelers might experience rough seas in several places in Europe. The biggest offender is the Mediterranean, which tends to be roughest in the fall and winter, due to winds and storms. However, avid cruisers have experienced rough seas in the spring and summer, so be prepared for_anything.

Is the Mediterranean Sea warmer than the Atlantic? Often the Mediterranean coast is warmer in the Spring and Summer months than the Atlantic, as youwould expect but it is also affected by the Tramontane wind which blows along the coastline from Spain sandblasting anything in its way.
