The Urban Sea is an interesting read that considers the history and legacy of some of the Mediterranean cities. The book is split into regions, each focusing on three cities with descriptions of their history, their influence and their place within the region.

The Urban Sea is a fascinating blend of travel guide and history book, illustrated with a number of black and white photographs that add life to each city description.

Some of the cities interested me more than others, but all are described
