Sailing the Mediterranean

Mediterranean yachting and cruise

We love sailing the Mediterranean. It’s the dolce vita. It’s the joie de vivre. No matter how you say it, it’s a region that’s best experienced by sea.
It’s easy to fall in love with the Mediterranean, and it starts from the ground up. Literally. It’s in every detail of the cobblestone alleyways, elegant esplanades, cliff-side footpaths, waterfront promenades, and roads made of marble. Whether you walk, bike, or drive, you’ll find that rich history, welcoming locals, and delicious cuisine are only ever a stone’s throw away.
But beyond stone surfaces, there’s so much more to the Med—and our curated shore excursions reveal it all. Get a more intimate look at local life when you make a meal at a home in Mykonos, get more steps in as you uncover the secrets of Venice, and get more music with an evening orchestra performance in an ancient amphitheater.
Trust us on this: even if you’ve been before, you’ll find something new to love about the Mediterranean when you sail it with Azamara®.meditterranean-yachting-circuit

Split Croacia- Cruise to the Mediterranean Flower

When you’re in Split, you might want to consider bringing a pocketful of breadcrumbs so you can find your way back to the ship. The warren-like streets and alleyways of this ancient walled city can be confusing to navigate, but hey, sometimes getting lost is half the fun!

One place you have to find your way to, though, is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Diocletian’s Palace, which dates back to the 4th century. It’s just one amazing part within the walls of a historical complex that also houses 12th-century churches, medieval fortifications, and 15th-century Gothic palaces. So let intuition be your guide as you spend the day meandering through the cobblestone streets while discovering the many restaurants, cafés, and shops that are tucked away in every nook and cranny.

Wander down to the water’s edge and stroll along the Riva, the spectacular white marble-Esque promenade. Dalmatians (the people, not the 101 variety) are extremely fashionable and this is the place to see and be seen, so get ready to strut your stuff.

And if you do lose your bearings amidst such an array of distractions, one of the friendly locals will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
