The Mediterranean is actually connected to the Atlantic Ocean through a narrow slot called the Straights of Gibraltar. In ancient times the Mediterranean was once the most traveled body of water in the world.In the eastern end of the Mediterranean there is another slot called the Dardanelles and Bosporus that connects to the Black Sea.
The Suez Canal was built to allow shipping from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea and Indian Ocean. This great canal saves ships from having to circumnavigate Africa and was called, "The Highway to India".
The Mediterranean connected the cultures by the shipping trade routes. There is a multitude of shipwrecks containing all kinds of merchandise and treasure. If you are a diver, you can enjoy these shipwrecks, but you can't remove anything because of the historical value.
