Tour Tips

  • Get to the starting port a day or two early to have time to relax. Leaving from Athens? Explore the ruins on your own before meeting with your tour group the next day.
  • The sun in the Mediterranean can be stronger than you're used to; make sure to bring plenty of sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses.
  • Keep hydrated during your trip. Being in the sun all day and participating in activities can dehydrate you fast.
  • Research the ports you'll be stopping in before you go to maximize your time there. If you're stopping in Monaco for only a day, decide if you want to spend time in the famous Monte Carlo casino, shopping, or strolling along the pier admiring the yachts.
  • Bring a variety of clothing and footwear. You want to make sure you're comfortable when you're exploring Naples on foot, as well as relaxing on the beach. Keep in mind that many cities on the Mediterranean have cobblestone streets, and appropriate footwear is necessary to prevent injury or discomfort.
  • The time of year is an important factor to consider, as most of your activities will be outside. The summer months can get quite hot, so consider going in the spring or fall if you're not up to being in the heat. The Mediterranean might be best explored in May or September for cooler, but still enjoyable weather.
  • If you want to go to a private beach, make sure to get there early to reserve your sunbed and parasol. Beaches get very crowded, especially in the summer, and having shade and a comfortable place to lay can make a huge difference. While public beaches are free, be aware that certain parts of the Mediterranean are full of rocks and don't make a comfortable spot for lying all day.
  • Be courteous and learn basic phrases of the countries you're going to. A simple "bonjour" (hello in French) and "grazie" (thank you in Italian) can go a long way with the locals you are interacting with.

Mediterranean Sea Trips & Tour Advice

The Mediterranean is perhaps the best known sea in the world, lapping the beaches of southern Europe, stretching east to the shores of the MIddle East, defining the coastline of North Africa, and enveloping scores of islands that are destinations in their own right. The array of cultures and cuisines it has helped to nourish over thousands of years are dizzying in their variety, and its scenic beauty is on display from countless promontories. Stride can help you decide which parts of this historic sea should be at the top of your list.

Countries to Visit

Think about what you're most interested in seeing. Do you want to see the beautiful islands of Greece and get to know the culture? Consider going to the Eastern Mediterranean to explore the villages in Mykonos and eat delicious food in Santorini. Maybe you're more interested in historical sites. The Mystical Sites of Ancient Turkey will let you see ancient buildings and churches, explore artifacts from all around the region in museums, and relax at beautiful beaches.

Length of the Cruise

Consider how long you want to be gone for. Do you want to do a cruise for less than a week? The 5 night Mediterranean Magic Cruise might be a good pick for you. These shorter ones tend to have a jam packed itinerary to maximize what you see. If you're looking for a longer cruise, consider trips such as the 13 day Best of South Italy cruise. The advantage of longer cruises are a few "sea days" are often built in between ports to allow you to relax on the ship in between all the sightseeing on land.

Transportation

Many popular tourist cities can be reached easily be train or bus. If you'll be staying in Nice but want to see other surrounding cities, you can hop on the train to see Marseille or Eze for an easy day trip. If you're in staying by the Aeagan Sea, taking a ferry might be easiest to get around. A little research ahead of time can save you time as well as money. Public transportation is fairly affordable in Europe and is usually a more practical option over a cab.
