    The Innocents Abroad is the author's account of his travels to Europe and the Middle East on a pleasure cruise. With his trademark dry wit and keen observations, the author relates accounts of his pleasantly ignorant shipmates, as well as the foreign cities they visit and the ancient wonders they see. A mixture of amazement and sarcasm, this volume sweeps the reader into 1860s France, Italy, Palestine, and more. Major themes include the classics, the hypocrisy of religion, and the cultural gulf between Europe and America.
